- MURIC has reacted to the riots that occurred at Capitol in the United States
- The Muslim group advised the federal government on the action to take
- The group blames President Trump and his allies for the embarrassing incident at the US legislative chamber
An Islamic organisation, the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has asked the Nigerian government to place a travel ban on President Donald Trump.
The group in a statement on Monday, January 11 said the federal government should sanction Trump and his allies for the riots that occurred at the Capitol.
MURIC director Ishaq Akintola, condemned the US president for refusal to acknowledge defeat in the presidential election.
The group said:
“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."
The organisation stated that Trump’s incitement led to the storming of the Capitol. It said the president has stained America’s reputation as a great democracy.
In another news, Nigeria's ruling party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), has condemned the attack on the US Capitol by the country's citizens who were protesting alleged voter fraud in the 2020 election.
In a statement signed by its national secretary, Senator John Akpan Udoedehe, the APC extolled the virtues of the US' democratic system but noted that a leader with integrity is also very important.
The party noted that President Buhari acted like a true democrat when he lost elections by taking his case as far as the Supreme Court.
MURIC said it is displeased that the federal government has refused to comments on the recent incidents in American politics.
Meanwhile, popular actor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, has said President Donald Trump will go down in history as the worst US president.
The former Republican governor made the statement in a video posted on Twitter on Sunday, January 10.
He compared the riot that occurred at the Capitol Hill rampage to Kristallnacht, the night in November 1938 when Nazi thugs attacked Jewish Germans and their property.
