Allow Tinubu to settle down, MURIC tells Nigerians


The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has congratulated President Bola Tinubu and Vice-President Kashim Shettima, urging Nigerians to cut the new president some slack.

“We appeal to Nigerians to allow the new administration to settle down and to cooperate with it in its endeavour to improve the standards of living in the country,” said Ishaq Akintola, the group’s executive director, in a statement.

The Muslim group also called on Islamic clerics to organise weekly prayers for the president and vice president.

“MURIC charges all Imams to initiate weekly prayers for President Tinubu and his vice-president as well as our country Nigeria, immediately after every Friday Jum’ah sermon,” the MURIC leader added.

In congratulating Messrs Tinubu and Shettima, Mr Akintola charged them to be conscious of the arduous task ahead.

“We rejoice with the new president and his vice and share with them their moments of glory. Even in the euphoria of victory, we charge the duo to be conscious of the onerous tasks ahead of them,” Mr Akintola stated.

The statement added, “Nigeria is a complex society. Therefore, there is the need to reflect deeply and examine all angles before taking decisions.”

Mr Akintola advised Messrs Tinubu and Shettima to make good governance and improved life their primary goals.
