Bola Tinubu has gotten another support from the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) . The Islamic group has tactically shown their support.
NEWS MAIL NG reports that the group said this through its Director, Ishaq Akintola, MURIC on Monday night. Akintola said the South West has a big opportunity in grabbing political power in 2023.
“Fortunately the Yoruba do not have to search too far as a former governor of Lagos State and leader of the ruling party has shown interest. Here is a candidate that brandishes impeccable pedigree”, he wrote in a veiled reference to Tinubu.
“Nobody can deny his political dexterity. He is known to have fought and won several political battles. The best the Yoruba people can do for the region is to rally behind this candidate and ensure that he clinches power in 2023,” MIURIC added.
“Power shift to the South has become mandatory as President Muhammadu Buhari would have spent eight complete years by 2023 and all eyes are presently on the South-West.
“Therefore the region cannot afford to lose the opportunity due to restlessness, recklessness, unnecessary protests, issuance of quit notices to other ethnicities and a general lack of stability”, it added.
MURIC also lauded the moves made to settle the Fulani issues in the South West.
