MURIC reacts to Fani-Kayode’s defection

The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has reacted to Femi Fani-Kayode’s defection from the opposition party to the All Progressives Congress (APC).


In a statement issued on Sunday by MURIC’s Director, Professor Ishaq Akintola said the group will not join in the frenzy that followed FFK’s action

“Although a tornado of criticism has greeted FFK’s action, MURIC would not join those who looked at the issue from one angle only, but will reflect deep and far to enable it to see the precious treasure hidden behind the hard stones.”

According to the statement, FFK like his father, Chief Remi Ade-Fani had a positive change of heart during his time.

Fani-Kayode is a man who has brazenly supported secessionists, irredentists and separatists. Nigeria drifted to the precipice of war and destruction as a result of the agitations of the groups supported by him, today, FFK in his new camp is most likely to promote a united Nigeria.”

“Nigeria stands to gain more from FFK’s volte-face. In retrospect, we appreciate today what FFK’s father, Chief Remi Ade Fani Kayode did in the 70s and 80s. He jettisoned ethnic politics by extending a hand of fellowship to the North to demonstrate his desire for a strong and united Nigeria.

“His son, Chief Femi Fani Kayode, has today replicated the same handshake across the Niger.

“FFK’s change of heart should be seen from a positive angle, particularly by those who mean well for Nigeria.
