The Director, Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), Professor Ishaq Akintola, on Friday reiterated that the group had confidence in President Muhammadu Buhari and his administration.
This is contained in the group’s New Year message which was released in Lagos on Friday.
The statement urged the leadership and members of the National Assembly to tow the same line of discipline with the Buhari administration, in order to justify the exalted position occupied by them.
It added that Nigerians expected the National Assembly to embrace the change mantra of the new dispensation.
The statement also said that the war against Boko Haram had been largely won by the new administration’s sincerity of purpose and commitment to the protection of the territorial integrity of the nation.
“We strongly believe that recent incidents of suicide bombing in some parts of the North East are borne out of a sense of defeat, as all territories occupied by the insurgents have been liberated by the Nigerian Armed Forces.
“President Muhammadu Buhari and the top echelon of the Nigerian Army deserve accolades for this monumental fait accompli,’’ the statement said.
The statement also said that the introduction of the Treasury Single Account (TSA) to the finance sector of government agencies nationwide had injected a powerful dose of probity and accountability into public finance.
It noted that its implementation also reinforces President Buhari’s credibility, saying that it also reassures Nigerians on the new administration’s war against corruption.
On the Judiciary, the group implored members of the Bench to visit the prisons regularly to enable it to be able to free a larger number of inmates, in order to facilitate a speedy and effective decongestion of the prisons.
“We remind judges and lawyers of the need to temper justice with patriotism in their handling of corruption cases,’’ the statement added.
