“Think more of Nigeria now” Islamic group tells politicians


The Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, has urged candidates of political parties to think more of Nigeria as the nation awaits the results of Saturday’s elections.


The group’s Director, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, made the call in a statement issued in Lagos on Monday, Feb. 27.


The statement read, “Nigerians went to the polls on Saturday, Feb. 25, to pick their 16th president, senators and representatives.


“As of today, Monday, Feb. 27, the results are still coming in trickles.


“But already, there have been pockets of violence in a few places around the country, although this hasn’t been widespread, and they have been contained.


“MURIC appeals to all candidates in the 2023 general elections to think more of Nigeria now and in the next few weeks.”


MURIC added that no candidate should attempt to burn the bridge after crossing it because the lives of over 200 million Nigerians are at stake.
