*Urges Nigerians to support FG for continuous successes

“Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan can now see the difference between action and inaction, between goodwill and bad faith and between lukewarm attitude and proactiveness.  Chibok and Dapchi are now reference points in a tale of two Commander-in-Chiefs: one who turns the other cheek while his army turns and runs and another who takes immediate action and puts insurgents on the run. We therefore call on Nigerians to continue to support President Muhammadu Buhari.”

The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has rejoined with the parents, the Federal Government (FG), President Muhammadu Buhari and the Nigerian Army over what it describes as the early return of the Dapchi school girls.

The female students of the Government Girls Secondary Technical College (GGSTC), Capchi, Yobe State, who were abducted by Boko Haram last month February 19, were reportedly released Wednesday morning precisely 30 days after their abduction, but with five of them reportedly missing putting the number that returned at 105.

Expressing its joy over the development, the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), in a statement by its Director Professor Ishaq Akintola on Wednesday, said it was indeed a pleasant development.

It said, “The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) rejoices with the parents, the Federal Government (FG), President Muhammadu Buhari and the Nigerian Army for the early return of the girls.”

MURIC did not however go without taking a swipe at former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, who had thought it fit to criticize President Buhari over the Dapchi girls abduction.

It said, “Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan can now see the difference between action and inaction, between goodwill and bad faith and between lukewarm attitude and proactiveness.  Chibok and Dapchi are now reference points in a tale of two Commander-in-Chiefs: one who turns the other cheek while his army turns and runs and another who takes immediate action and puts insurgents on the run. We therefore call on Nigerians to continue to support President Muhammadu Buhari.

“We charge FG to ensure adequate protection for all the schools in the insurgency zone. Defeated, frustrated, bankrupt and hungry, Boko Haram is looking for ways of embarrassing FG, sourcing for food and ransom money. We must never be caught napping again.

“However, we are saddened by the loss of five of the girls. We sympathise with their parents and pray that Allah will grant them Aljannah Firdaus. We also pray that Almighty Allah will give the parents the strength to bear the loss.”

There is love in sharing!!
