MURIC advises Fayose against religious sentiments

MURIC's Executive Director, Ishaq Akintola

The Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, has advised Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State not to play politics with religion and be mindful of his utterances.

The caution came after Mr. Fayose accused President Muhammadu Buhari of trying to Islamise Nigeria by visiting Saudi Arabia.

The group gave the advice in a statement issued on Sunday by its Director, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, in Ibadan.

The statement said Mr. Fayose had failed woefully on his attempt to whip up religious sentiment, saying even a 10-year old Nigerian child knew the reason for Buhari’s visit to Saudi Arabia.

“Turbulence in the price of oil has greatly impoverished Nigeria and Buhari is employing diplomacy to turn round Nigeria’s oil fortune.

“Playing pranks with Buhari’s visit to Saudi Arabia simply shows that Fayose has lost all sense of objectivity.

“Nigerians should help us ask Fayose where he was when his erstwhile mentor and former President Jonathan turned Jerusalem to the back-yard of Aso Rock, shuttling between Nigeria and Israel.

`”Fayose prefers to cast a wicked joke with the fate of the Nigerian economy,’’ MURIC said.

MURIC said that Nigerians were tired of Mr. Fayose’s noise, adding the governor was not paying any attention to the problems of his state.

The group urged Mr. Fayose to work hard as Ekiti State Governor and deliver the dividend of democracy to Ekiti residents.

        He has no god; otherwise he will not be answering Ifayose! His father long changed his name to Oluwayose!

        Fayose can never be serving the Amighty Living God who is in heaven and presides over the affairs of the entire world.He is definately serving sango since his outbursts are rather always embarrassing to an erudite mind.Only minds of your type can`t see the havoc he is causing to Ekiti state.W hen sound minded intellectuals like Afe Babalola and the rest are against what he is doing and you are giving credit to him,you may likely be a thug like him.

      Dont worry, Buhari will get what u prayed for Fayose, sooner than me!

  • Muhd Jamil Sani

    Fayose only expresses his political interest rather ways of development of this nation.

  • Say the truth

    When did MURIC become Buhari’s spokesperson? A group of charlatan seeking godless relevance. Fayose is entitled to his opinion as a citizen of this nation. It is called foundamental human right. This Isaaq Akintola self. I have to control myself because of PT editor who will delete my message.

    Fayose was right. Is it not true that Buhari met with the IOC director-general in Saudi Arabia? Is it not true that president Buhari empathized with Hamas and advocated Jerusalem to be the capital of Muslim Palestinians? Buhari should remember that without Nigerian Christians’ votes he wouldn’t have been the President of Nigeria,

    • Baba B

      I wonder where idiots like you and Fayose where when GEJ led a delegation to the OIC conference in Egypt in 2014 making him the first and only Nigerian president to have done that. In your warped mind, Fayose Is entitled to air hi opinion but PMB doesn’t have the same right to air his on the Palestinian issue

      • TrueNja

        I don’t insult people as I’m not a trash and low life person like you. We are in democratic world and we are at the liberty to post different views and opinions on current events.

        1) When GEJ went to IOC conference in Egypt, he never requested IOC to come and take over NE IDPs? but Buhari knows well that majority of people In NE IDPs are Christians.

        2) Was it not during Buhari’s official visit to Saudi Arabia and Qatar as the Nigeria President when he empathized with Hams, the UN designated Islamic terrorist organization and advocated Jerusalem to be the capital of Muslim Palestinians?

  • TrueNja

    Since MURiC has now become Buhari’s spokesperson, we Nigerians are anxiously awaiting your rebuttal on Ese a 13 years old girl from Bayelsa abducted by a Fulani man and forced into marriage, presently living with the Emir of Kano, Lamdo Sanusi.
