The Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to place a travel ban on the outgoing President of the United States of America, USA, Donald Trump.
MURIC in a Press statement signed by its Director, Professor Ishaq Akintola, on Monday, says it request for the sanctioning of President Trump along with his key Allies, for their ignoble roles in the US 2020 Presidential election, particularly the recent violent storming of the Capitol.
The group said that it strongly condemns the role played by President Trump during the November 2020, Presidential election.
According to MURIC, President Trump’s refusal to concede defeat to President-elect, Joe Biden, shows acute rejection of the spirit of sportsmanship.
It added that by inciting his supporters which led to the storming of the Capitol, President Trump has stained America’s reputation as a great democracy.
Muric statement read in part; “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.
“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 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.
