The cleric claimed there may have been a coup or battle within the nation if a non-Nothern Muslim was the president within the final 5 years and did a number of the issues Buhari is doing.
MURIC mentioned it believes that these feedback by the cleric are inconsistent along with his standing, notably because the secretary of Nigeria’s Peace Committee.
“How did such a belligerent combatant emerge because the secretary of Nigeria’s Peace Committee? What good can come from a person who’s full of hate and bias for a big part of the nation?” MURIC’s assertion requested.
“We demand that Kukah ought to honourably recuse himself from the Peace Committee. Failure to take action can have a devastating impact of discrediting that committee. It should imply that the committee was arrange within the first place for a partisan objective,” the group mentioned.
In accordance with MURIC, Muslims in Nigeria will now not have any confidence within the committee, including that the committee might as effectively be disbanded.
