The body, an Islamic human rights organization, has been in the vanguard of human friendly policies.Advertisement
MURIC said that poor workers could hardly afford the price tag of the socalled lowcost housing estates while ordinary market women were driven out of their stalls because they could not pay for the shops built by governments.
MURIC said the appeal is part of its Sallah message, felicitated with President Muhammadu Buhari, PresidentElect Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Saad Abubakar, the Shehu of Borno, Alhaji Abu Bakr bin Ibrahim AlKanemi, and all Nigerians on the occasion of this years Eid alFitr.Advertisement
In view of the fact that Ramadan is designed to evoke pity and sympathy for the poor in every society, we call attention to the plight of the Nigerian proletariat who toil day and night for our country but who are overworked, underpaid and overtaxed.
They are responsible not only for the feeding and accommodation of their families but also for the education of their children.
This obnoxious policy forces the grownup children and sometimes the mothers to go into crime, prostitution and other evil practices like ritual killings and human trafficking.
They are symbols of bad government policies which need to be quickly reviewed.Advertisement
More saddening is the plight of poor and vulnerable market women who are driven out of their shops by governments.
