Trump impeached

The Federal Government (FG) of Nigeria has been urged to slap a travel ban on Donald Trump, the outgoing president of the United States of America. Also to be sanctioned with him are his key allies for their roles in the US 2020 presidential elections particularly the storming of the Capitol.

This advice was given in a press statement issued by an Islamic human rights organization, the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), on Monday, 11th January, 2021. The press release was signed by the group’s director, Professor Ishaq Akintola.

The group said:

“We strongly denounce the role played by President Donald Trump in the last US general elections.

“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, overambition 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 (FG) 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.

While calling on the FG to slap a travel ban on Donald Trump, the group said:

“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.
