ABUJA- The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has called on the main opposition candidate, former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, to congratulate the winner, President Bola Tinubu.
In a statement issued on Friday, the Executive Director of MURIC, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, implored Abubakar, to display Islamic brotherhood and political maturity by congratulating the winner.
Akintola said that politics was over as the legal fireworks had come to an end with the final pronouncement of the Supreme Court.
”But we have a country to build and the time to do it is now.
“Both of you are Muslims and that is important to MURIC. First and foremost, you were both Muslims before becoming politicians. You must now join hands to heal wounds, to build bridges and to allay fears,” he said.(NAN)
