The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), has said that the present administration has never been a religious violator as president Muhammadu Buhari has never had the opportunity to abuse religion or use it arbitrarily.

MURIC Director, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, said this while speaking with PUNCH, on the United States government delisting Nigeria from the list of religious violators which it placed the country on in 2020.

The delisting had sparked reactions from groups faulting the grounds on which Nigeria was delisted from religious violators list.

According to Akintola, christains and Muslims are facing the same tragedy of killings.

He said;

“We have a tragedy facing both Christians and Muslims squarely. Is it the government that is killing Christians? Who are those killing Christians in the South-East? To the North-East where there are insurgency and banditry, the killers don’t discriminate; they attack Muslims and Christians,” he said.


Akintola added, “Nigeria was never a religious violator. The administration we have now was never a religious violator. Government at the federal level, our President has never had the opportunity to abuse religion, to use it arbitrarily.


“It is just that some Nigerians want to get at certain people in power by all means, And so, they can concoct any lies and take to the US and because the US is always hungry for information about other countries, the US would swallow it hook line and sinker.”


“No Nigerian should go outside the country to write negative reports or use undue influence to speak negatively about the country”.
