The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), has urged the Miyetti Allah Group to take back the statements made by its president; Bello Abdullahi, explaining that it needs further clarification.
Prof. Ishaq Akintola, MURIC Director, took to the media to appeal to Nigerians. He enjoined Nigerians to ignore the divisive statement made by the Miyetti Allah president.
Leadership is therefore not the birthright of any ethnicity.
“We appeal to Nigerians to ignore the statement allegedly made by Miyetti Allah and to allow the group to make clarifications. We call on leaders to avoid divisive, explosive and provocative statements.
“We strongly suspect that the alleged statement is either a product of fake news or that the real statement had been deliberately distorted or that Miyetti Allah leader has been inadvertently misquoted. This is why a clarification is necessary at this point in time.
“MURIC will continue to stand for justice, fairness and equal rights no matter whose ox is gored. Stability, peace and prosperity in every part of Nigeria is the major concern of the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC). Neither shall we favour one tribe over another,” he said.
