The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has disclosed why it is solidly behind the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Speaking during the weekend, MURIC Director, Professor Isiaq Akintola stated that Muslims in the southwest have no other option but to support Tinubu.

While addressing journalists during a send-forth and book presentation organised by MUSWEN in honour of a former Executive Secretary of the organisation, Professor Daud Noibi, Akintola stated that Muslims have been suffering for decades.

According to him, those who have been presidents or vice presidents from the region are Christians.

“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.

“From Obasanjo to Diya to Shonekan and now to the current Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, all of them have been Christians.

“At this time, we are supporting MUSWEN for endorsing Tinubu.

"MURIC has said it earlier that we want a Muslim presidential candidate and since Tinubu has emerged as the APC candidate, the Southwest Muslims have no other choice than to support him”, he said.
