The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has said that President Muhammadu Buhari was not to blame for the myriads of socio-economic challenges facing the country. Director of the organisation Professor Ishaq Akintola said on Thursday in a statement that a former President Olusegun Obasanjo letter berating President Buhari and asking him not to seek re-election in 2019 is making the President a culprit rather than being a victim.
“MURIC believes that Obasanjo’s tirade would have been right had he fired it at the National Assembly which has been holding Buhari by the hand. But alas! Obasanjo has chosen the victim instead of the culprit. Although Obasanjo’s epistle is profound, recondite and arcane, we are constrained to conclude that certain germane correlates have not been put into consideration by the respected retired general and ex-head of state.
