“The harassment of Dr. Isa Ali Pantami at the Mallam Aminu Kano Global Airport is repugnant, detestable and provocative,” it added.
“It is most unruly, extremely uncultured, entirely puerile and categorically barbaric. Nigeria should really be earlier mentioned this. At 59, Nigerians nonetheless engage in bolekaja politics. It is a huge shame. Our publish-independence political culture is continue to characterised with violence, bitterness, intimidation and coercion. Our politics is laced with large doses of intolerance. Ours is politics of retrogression. It is unacceptable.

“In saner climes, the political party would have issued a statement dissociating alone from any unethical habits and apologizing for identical. We therefore call on PDP Kano chapter to do the needful. Anything at all small of a public apology above this infantile and very uncomfortable incident is an assault on civilized political decorum. Nigeria must transfer from Stone Age political gangsterism.
“MURIC appeals to the ruling party in the state, the All Progressives Congress (APC), to take the incident with equanimity. APC Kano will have to manifest political maturity by resisting the temptation to revenge. The fact that Senator Kwankwaso has founded rapour with the minister ought to serve as a calming balm for customers of the APC in Kano Condition.
“Dr. Ali Isa Pantami justifies tons of respect from each individual Nigerian. He is one of the few citizens who have engraved Nigeria’s name in letters of gold on the sands of time. His loaded and scary curriculum vitae stands him out from the group of political shenanigans and opportunistic parasites. Nigeria desperately needs persons like him. It is therefore a good disservice to maltreat these types of a cerebral gem.
“As we draw the curtain, we demand Nigerian politicians to shun thuggery and hooliganism. We need to draw classes from the incidents which led to armed service coups in the past. Politicians will have to try to remember that what goes round comes all over. Respect begets respect but this golden rule will no lengthier apply if we allow for the era of political violence to return,” he said.
