The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has advised Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state not to play politics with religion.

Fayose recently accused President Muhammadu Buhari of plotting to turn Nigeria into a solely Islamic country.

The group also said the Governor should concentrate on delivering the dividends of democracy to the citizens of Ekiti state, adding that Nigerians are tired of his noise.

A statement released by its Director, Prof. Ishaq Akintola said “Turbulence in the price of oil has greatly impoverished Nigeria and Buhari is employing diplomacy to turn round Nigeria’s oil fortune.

“Playing pranks with Buhari’s visit to Saudi Arabia simply shows that Fayose has lost all sense of objectivity.

“Nigerians should help us ask Fayose where he was when his erstwhile mentor and former President Jonathan turned Jerusalem to the back-yard of Aso Rock, shuttling between Nigeria and Israel.

”Fayose prefers to cast a wicked joke with the fate of the Nigerian economy.”

MURIC also advised Governor Ayodele Fayose  not to make statements that will stir up religious sentiments.
