According to the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress’s (APC) presidential candidate for president in 2023, is the only choice available to Muslims in the Southwest region.
Professor Isiaq Akintola, the director of MURIC, said this on Monday while speaking to journalists about the 2023 elections at the University of Ibadan.
The Muslim Ummah of South West Nigeria (MUSWEN) hosted a send-forth and book presentation in honor of Professor Daud Noibi, a former executive secretary of the group, and Akintola, who spoke to journalists on the sidelines of the event, claimed that the Yoruba Muslims have been suffering for decades.
He continued by saying that all of the region’s presidents and vice presidents are Christians.
Akintola insisted that the Southwest Muslims, who are represented by MUSWEN as their umbrella organization, have no choice but to back Tinubu in 2023.
He claimed that Tinubu’s call for support was predicated on the fact that he is the only known presidential candidate from the area.
He said: “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 Southwest. Because, the Yoruba Muslims have suffered for decades. All those who have been either President or Vice President are Christians.”
