MURIC issues warning against Christian Yoruba Presidential candidate

There is news about a possible Christian Yoruba candidate for the Presidency.

Ahead of the 2023 general election, the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has warned against giving the presidential slot to a Christian Yoruba candidate.

MURIC claims a Yoruba Christian president is to sentence Muslims in Yorubaland to a life of perpetual slavery and warned that any political party which gives a presidential slot to a Christian candidate in the South West will lose woefully.

Prof. Ishaq Akintola Director of MURIC accused Christians of not learning the art of living and letting live and lamented over an alleged marginalization of Muslims in the Southwest.

The statement by MURIC read, “One, Yoruba Christians do not give their Muslim neighbours their Allah-given fundamental human rights. Examples abound in the way female Muslim children are persecuted in Yoruba schools, particularly over hijab and their refusal to allow their fellow Yoruba Muslims to apply civil Shariah which does not affect Christians in any way. We are reluctant to come under the presidency of people who do not respect our civil liberties.

“We, therefore, reiterate our position: on Yoruba Muslim president, we stand unless the presidency is not zoned to the South West. To give the position to a Yoruba Christian is to sentence Muslims in Yorubaland to a life of perpetual slavery. Our Christian neighbours have not learnt the art of living and letting live.

“Therefore, our message to the political parties is this: any party that gives the presidential slot to a Christian candidate in the South West will lose woefully.”
