Yoruba Muslims won’t vote for a Christian candidate in 2023- MURIC

The leader of the Islamic group, Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), Ishaq Akintola, has alerted Nigerians that Yoruba Muslims have had enough of been sidelined.

The Professor said come 2023, Yoruba Muslims won’t be throwing their weight behind any Christian candidate.

“It is our belief that Yoruba Muslims need federal might to eliminate or at least scale down the tornado of oppression and the Tsunami of anti-Muslim sentiment.

“Only a Yoruba Muslim president who knows what has been happening can do this effectively. Who feels it, knows it”, Akintola insisted. And “No political party should tell us that they cannot find competent Yoruba Muslims” he added.

The organization claimed they are denied almost all civil liberties, including admission into schools.

Akintola alleged many cannot get international passports, driving licences and voter registration cards because they are asked to remove their hijab for capturing.

A statement by the Director said no Yoruba Muslim ever occupied the State House either as president or vice president since 1960.

MURIC advised presidential aspirants and parties mapping out strategies for the next general elections to heed its call.

Akintola condemned the “stigmatisation galore” for Yoruba Muslims in Nigeria since independence.
