MURIC Call to preserve democracy in Nigeria

The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has issued a powerful call for the Nigerian Army to take action against those inciting military intervention

The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has issued a powerful call for the Nigerian Army to take action against those inciting military intervention to overthrow the legitimate administration of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu. The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC commended the army for its resilience against such instigations. At the same time, they emphasized their commitment to preserving democracy in Nigeria.

Steadfast Stand Against Coup Instigators
MURIC’s Executive Director, Professor Ishaq Akintola, described those advocating for a military takeover as ‘ignoramuses’ and ‘the greatest enemies of the Nigerian people.’ He also underscored the dangers of military rule, which he warned would rob Nigerians of their freedom, dignity, and the rule of law.


A Firm Commitment to Democracy and Human Rights
MURIC also reaffirmed its commitment to the rule of law and human rights, signalling its determination to protect the democratic values of Nigeria. The organization emphasized the significance of institutions like the Senate and the House of Representatives, which would be absent under military rule.

The Consequences of Military Rule
Professor Akintola also warned of a military regime’s absence of accountability and integrity. He highlighted the oppressive nature of military rule and its potential impact on governance. Additionally, he pointed out that military regimes suppress criticism, further undermining the rights and freedoms of the citizens.

Expose, Arrest, Prosecute
Further, the central demand from MURIC is for the Nigerian Army to take concrete steps: expose, arrest, and prosecute those attempting to destabilize Nigeria’s democratic process by inciting a military coup. This stern stance underlines the organization’s commitment to maintaining the country’s democratic institutions and the rule of law.

As the situation unfolds, MURIC’s call to action serves as a reminder that preserving democracy is a collective responsibility. The organization’s strong condemnation of coup instigators echoes the sentiment of many Nigerians who cherish democratic principles and seek a peaceful, stable, and law-abiding nation.
