MURIC Berates Buhari for Failure to Lead Africa in Banning Donald Trump over Capitol Incidence

The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has urged the Nigerian president, Muhammadu Buhari, to sanction the US president, Donald Trump and his key allies “for their ignoble roles in the US 2020 presidential elections particularly the storming of the Capitol.”

In a statement by its director, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, MURIC asked Buhari to place a travel ban on Trump over his role in the Capitol Hill riot, saying the silence of the Nigerian president on the incidence was a diplomatic docility, noting the US government would have imposed sanctions on Nigeria if the show of shame at the Capitol Hill had happened in Nigeria.

He also said President Buhari has failed to provide inspirational leadership for Africa by reciprocating the American condemnation of Africa in such anti-democratic situations.

Akintola said in the statement added, “We strongly denounce the role played by President Donald Trump in the last US general elections. Trump’s refusal to acknowledge defeat shows acute desertification of the spirit of sportsmanship.

“His insistence on electoral fraud despite several court declarations to the contrary is a manifestation of selfishness, overambition, and inordinate lust for power. Above all, his incitement which led to the storming of the Capitol is despicable, repulsive and preposterous. Trump has stained America’s reputation as a great democracy.

“MURIC calls on the Federal Government to speak up on the American debacle. America’s condemnation of African and other third world countries has been deafening enough to attract a tornado of backlashes at this moment.

“We are not happy that FG has remained silent. China, Turkey, and Iran have spoken up. The voice of Africa must also be heard and the continent is looking unto Nigeria to lead the way.

“We must tell America to its face that tyranny is colour blind and dictators can emerge from the least expected places on earth. There is no country which is occupied by angels only, least of all America.

“We call on FG to place travel ban on outgoing President Donald Trump and his key allies. It is hoped that other African countries will key into the idea. It just has to be on record that once upon a time, America produced a tyrant, a bully, and an insurrectionist.”
