May 29 Handing Over: Group Draws Attention To Ominous Signs On Nigerian Political Horizon

Professor Akintola Ishaq

The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has drew the attention of the security operatives to what it called “Ominous signs on the Nigerian political horizon,” as the nation prepares for the handing over of power from President Muhammadu Buhari to President elect, Bola Tinubu.
The group stressed the need for the security operatives to increase surveillance over the President-elect and his Vice, Kashim Shettima “because of the desperation of the opposition politicians.”
MURIC’s Executive Director, Professor Ishaq Akintola, in a statement, said that the rising security threats and treasonable utterances from the opposition camp, resulting from desperation, should not be taken lightly.
“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(-president), 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.”
Akintola called on the opposition to exercise restraint in contesting the 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,” the MURIC boss explained.
“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.”
