An Islamic human rights organisation, the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), on Sun, it has been vindicated next Femi Fani-Kayode’s defection to the All Progressives Congress, APC.
In a statement issued on Sun, by MURIC’s Manager and founder, Professor Ishaq Akintola, he said “although, a tornado of criticism has greeted FFK’s activity, MURIC would not bring together those who looked at the issue from one angle only, but will reverberate deep and far to enable it regard the precious treasure hidden behind the tough stones.”
According to the statement, “Fani-Kayode is a man who has brazenly supported secessionists, irredentists and separatists. Nigeria drifted to the precipice of state of war and devastation as a termination of the agitations of the groups supported by him, nowadays, FFK in his new military camp is most likely to promote a united Nigeria.”
According to him, Nigeria stands to gain to a greater extent from FFK’s volte-face.
“In retrospect, we appreciate nowadays what FFK’s begetter, Master Remi Ade Fani Kayode did in the 70s and 80s. He jettisoned ethnic politics by extending a mitt of fellowship to the Due north in tell to demonstrate his want for a strong and united Nigeria.
“His son, Master Femi Fani Kayode, has nowadays replicated the same handshake across the Niger. FFK’s modify of ticker should be seen from a positive angle, specially by those who signify good for Nigeria. We must forget that he has abused virtually everybody (including MURIC and its founder) who did not regard things the way he did. But he must be saluted for his sportsmanship,” the statement said.
MURIC appreciated Buhari for his patience and fatherly dispensation towards his critics.
“Chivalry demands that we stand up upwards for FFK nowadays and we call up on all Nigerians to do same, to forgive, to forbear, to demonstrate understanding.
“Perhaps this new evolution will enable all of us to regard that claims of Islamisation and Fulanisation be only in the figment of imagination of its authors. Afterall the man who started it all eventually came to Aso Stone and he was neither Islamised nor Fulanised.
“We assert clearly, unequivocally and unambiguously that MURIC is vindicated. Fani Kayode has seen in PMB what MURIC saw 8 years agone when we started supporting his cause for the presidency. He has seen PMB’s style of nursing malice for no one and having charity for all, including his enemies. It won him over. He saw PMB’s achievements, his transparency.
“FFK saw how a political political party spent $16 billion providing darkness for Nigerians. He saw how $2.1 billion arms money was diveted to private pockets. In sharp contrast, he is at present a living witness to the variety of evolution that can occur in a country when its leader is not a kleptomaniac.
“He has seen the moment Niger bridge which is nearing completion, the fully airconditioned trains which create mincemeat of London trains, macadamized roads in the Southward East (the same Southward East which some claim that PMB hates), Southward Westward and Southward Southward and the Due north, etc. He knows this is what happens when the leader does not steal. All these humbled him. It is to the credit of FFK that he was able to regard virtues in PMB which other critics failed or refused to regard,” MURIC farther stated.
