Prof. Ishaq Akintola, the director of the Muslim rights concern group(MURIC) has asked Nigerian president Buhari to place a travel ban on Donald Trump. He said this in a statement release titled “place ban on Trump, cronies”.
The group also asked president Buhari to sanction Trump’s key allies “for their ignoble roles in the US 2020 presidential elections particularly the storming of the Capitol”. Prof Akintola berated Buhari for his silence on the capitol riot. He noted that the US would have placed sanctions on Nigeria if such a thing happened.
According to the statement;
The Muslim rights concern group(MURIC) strongly denounced the role played by President Donald Trump in the last US general elections. They stated that Trump’s refusal to acknowledge defeat shows acute desertification of the spirit of sportsmanship.
“His insistence on electoral fraud despite several court declarations to the contrary is a manifestation of selfishness, over-ambition, and inordinate lust for power. Above all, his incitement which led to the storming of the Capitol is despicable, repulsive and preposterous. Trump has stained America’s reputation as a great democracy.
“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 are not happy that FG has remained silent. China, Turkey, and Iran have spoken up. The voice of Africa must also be heard and the continent is looking unto Nigeria to lead the way.
“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.
“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.”
Trump’s supporters had stormed a session of Congress held last Wednesday to certify Joe Biden’s election win, triggering unprecedented chaos and violence at the heart of American democracy and accusations the president was attempting a coup.
Hours after an extraordinary rally by Trump seeking to overturn the election, a flag-waving mob broke down barricades outside the Capitol and swarmed inside, rampaging through offices and onto the usually solemn legislative floors.
At least five persons died in the riot generally believed to be incited by the US president.
