Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), an Islamic human rights organization has reacted to the presence of ‘fake clerics’ at Kashim Shettima’s unveiling.

MURIC said the clerics that attended the unveiling of Bola Tinubu’s running mate, Kashim Shettima are not fake.

MURIC Director, Professor Ishaq Akintola issued a statement on Friday in reaction to the dissociation by the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN).

Akintola said despite the brouhaha over the Muslim-Muslim ticket, “many bishops and pastors” attended the event.

MURIC accused the Christian leadership of shying away from reality and living in self-denial.

“Going by the findings, it is now very clear that leaders of CAN have distanced themselves from reality,” it said.

“How low can a religious body descend? What does CAN stand to gain by deceiving its followers?

MURIC also listed some of those it maintained are genuine clergymen that graced the APC event.

Akintola said Bishop Kamoru is “a real cleric from Peace Chapel, Mararaba”, in Nasarawa State.

“A picture has emerged where he was seen conducting a wedding in the church. Some members have come up to say that they knew him personally.

“Reverend Father Hyacinth Alia, of Gboko Catholic Diocese, Benue State, is also the APC Governorship candidate.

“Pastor Prince Ugokwe, also confirmed that he is a real pastor and not fake”, the Islamic group added.

MURIC noted that CAN “is not to be trusted” for CAN disowning “but knowledgeable bishops and pastors”.

“This shows that a caucus within the leadership of CAN has unleashed tyranny of the oligarchy on Christendom in Nigeria”, the statement added.

Ugo Ugokwe, an APC member and one of the clerics, responded to critics in a Facebook post on Wednesday.
