MURIC calls for increased security for President-elect



The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) on Friday called for an increased security measures for the President and Vice President-elect, Bola Tinubu and Kashim Shetima.

MURIC’s Executive Director, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, who made the call in a statement in Lagos, said it was based on the alleged rising security threats and treasonable utterances coming from the opposition camp which bothered on desperation.

“We find it necessary to alert the nation, particularly the security agencies, concerning ominous signs on the Nigerian political horizon.

“We call on the security agencies to double guards for the President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his vice, Kashim Shettima. Nothing must happen to them.

“We remind those plotting to truncate the presidential inauguration, billed for May 29 of the dire consequences of their actions,” he said.

He urged the opposition to exercise restraint in its conduct as it contested election results.

“Those who fight and run away live to fight another day. Those who did not win in 2023 have another chance in 2027.

“Remember the words of Paul Tibbets who dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima, ‘My God! What have we done?’ But it was too late. The damage had already been done. A word is enough for the wise,” he said.
