The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), has urged President Joe Biden of the US to compare Nigerians protesting in front of the White House against the presidential election in Nigeria to cynical, deluded and fanatical Republicans who still believed that Trump won the US election.
MURIC said this in Abuja on Monday in a statement by its Executive Director, Prof Ishaq Akintola.
Prof Akintola said: “A few misguided Nigerians have staged a protest in front of the White House in the United States of America against the outcome of the Feb. 25 election held in Nigeria.
“We appeal to the US President, Joe Biden, to ignore the protesters. The Nigerian election was free and fair to a large extent. Ours may not be a perfect system yet, but it is neither brutish nor undemocratic. In fact it was the best election ever conducted in Nigeria.
“The ruling APC did not win a landslide but lost sensitive areas during the elections including National Assembly seats.
“An election has been held and the winner has been declared by the electoral body. We have a President-elect and that is sacrosanct by all democratic rules. Stakeholders are, therefore, expected to accept the outcome or approach the courts if not satisfied.”
