The group said in a statement signed by its Director Prof. Isiaq Akintola that Wednesday’s resumption by the National Assembly (NASS) was marred by rumours of an advanced plot aimed at extending the tenure of President Jonathan, thereby scuttling the 2015 polls. It also observed that members of Senate and the House of Representatives are allegedly being lobbied to support a six-month extension in the first place. This will later be extended by two years as the regime digs in, it said.
The statement said senators and representatives who failed to clinch a return ticket during the primaries are allegedly showing interest in the grand plan.
“MURIC joins other well-meaning Nigerians, true patriots and genuine democrats to warn against this diabolical plot. It is nothing short of a coup against the people of Nigeria and a sabotage of what Rousseau called the General Will. With the exemption of a few bootlickers and court jesters, Nigerians are eager to vote come March 28 and April 11”, the statement said.
It charged members of the National Assembly to stand on the right side of history where their names would be written in gold by not buying into the tenure elongation idea.
