Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has said that Muslims in the South West zone are left with no option but to support the candidature of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
This was made known by the MURIC Director, Professor Isiaq Akintola, while addressing newsmen at the University of Ibadan, Oyo State, over the weekend.
Akintola, during a send-forth and book presentation organised by MUSWEN in honour of a former Executive Secretary of the organisation, Professor Daud Noibi, said that Yoruba Muslims have been suffering for decades.
“MUSWEN endorsed the APC presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and I want to affirm that MUSWEN has no other choice. They don’t have any other alternative.
“MURIC has said it earlier that we are supporting a Muslim presidential candidate from the South West.
“Because the Yoruba Muslims have suffered for decades. All those who have been either President or Vice President are Christians
“From Obasanjo to Diya to Shonekan and now to the current Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, all of them have been Christians.
“At this time, we are supporting MUSWEN for endorsing Tinubu. MURIC has said earlier that we want a Muslim presidential candidate, and since Tinubu has emerged as the APC candidate, the South West Muslims have no other choice than to support him.”
