The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has reacted to Femi Fani-Kayode’s defection from the opposition party to the All Progressives Congress (APC), stating that the former minister is just like his father.

The former PDP chieftain was introduced to President Muhammadu Buhari as the newest member of the ruling party on Thursday during a visit to the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

Mr. Fani Kayode said that he was led by the Spirit of God in his decision and that he joined the APC to help for the unity of the country, adding that he was against anything that would cause the disintegration of Nigeria.

He informed that he was instrumental in the exit of three Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, governors to the APC.

The Secretary to the Government of Federation (SGF), Mr Boss Mustapha, was also present at the meeting to introduce Fani-Kayode.

In a statement issued on Sunday by MURIC’s Director, Professor Ishaq Akintola said the group will not join in the frenzy that followed FFK’s action.

“Although a tornado of criticism has greeted FFK’s action, MURIC would not join those who looked at the issue from one angle only, but will reflect deep and far to enable it to see the precious treasure hidden behind the hard stones.”

According to the statement, FFK like his father, Chief Remi Ade-Fani had a positive change of heart during his time.

“Fani-Kayode is a man who has brazenly supported secessionists, irredentists and separatists. Nigeria drifted to the precipice of war and destruction as a result of the agitations of the groups supported by him, today, FFK in his new camp is most likely to promote a united Nigeria.”

“Nigeria stands to gain more from FFK’s volte-face. In retrospect, we appreciate today what FFK’s father, Chief Remi Ade Fani Kayode did in the 70s and 80s. He jettisoned ethnic politics by extending a hand of fellowship to the North to demonstrate his desire for a strong and united Nigeria.

“His son, Chief Femi Fani Kayode, has today replicated the same handshake across the Niger.

“FFK’s change of heart should be seen from a positive angle, particularly by those who mean well for Nigeria.

“We must forget that he has abused virtually everybody (including MURIC and its founder) who did not see things the way he did. But he must be saluted for his sportsmanship,” the statement said.

MURIC appreciated Buhari for his patience and fatherly dispensation towards his critics.

“Chivalry demands that we stand up for FFK today and we call on all Nigerians to do same, to forgive, to forbear, to show understanding.

“Perhaps this new development will enable all of us to see that claims of Islamisation and Fulanisation exist only in the figment of the imagination of its authors. After all, the man who started it all eventually came to Aso Rock and he was neither Islamised nor Fulanised.

“We assert clearly, unequivocally and unambiguously that MURIC is vindicated. Fani Kayode has seen in PMB what MURIC saw eight years ago when we started supporting his campaign for the presidency. He has seen PMB’s style of nursing malice for no one and having charity for all, including his enemies. It won him over. He saw PMB’s achievements, his transparency.

“FFK saw how a political party spent $16 billion providing darkness for Nigerians. He saw how $2.1 billion arms money was diverted to private pockets. In sharp contrast, he is now a living witness to the kind of development that can occur in a country when its leader is not a kleptomaniac.

“He has seen the second Niger bridge which is nearing completion, the fully airconditioned trains which make mincemeat of London trains, macadamized roads in the South East (the same South East which some claim that PMB hates), South West and South-South and the North, etc.

“He knows this is what happens when the leader does not steal. All these humbled him. It is to the credit of FFK that he was able to see virtues in PMB which other critics failed or refused to see,”
MURIC further stated.
