MURIC labels Afenifere ‘myopic, unpatriotic’ for refusing to support Tinubu’s 2023 bid

The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has slammed apex Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere, over the group’s stance on not supporting the 2023 presidential bid of former Lagos State Governor and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, IgbereTV reports.

In a statement by its Director General, Prof. Ishaq Akintola on Tuesday, MURIC stated that Afenifere’s refusal to support Tinubu is a slap on the Yoruba race in “view of Tinubu’s active role in the struggle for the restoration of democracy in Nigeria.”

The MURIC DG said he was surprised that a Yoruba socio-cultural group which was supposed to be a rallying point for all Yorubas should come out in the open to denounce one of its own because of the differences between its leader, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, and the APC chieftain.

The Muslim group added that Tinubu deserves to reap from the gains of democracy, having sacrificed for its realisation and as such, should be supported, especially by the Yoruba group.
