The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has called on Nigerians to curse “looters of national treasury”, three times daily.
In a statement released on Monday by the director of the group, Ishaq Akintola, the group also asked jobless graduates to rain curses on ” their oppressors”.
Akintola advised the federal government to adopt an unconventional method in its fight against corruption, citing some techniques that have failed in various countries.
“Looters have the elephant while FG has the ant. South Africa used the truth commission when it had a national crisis but it did not work when Nigeria adopted it because many powerful people refused to appear before the commission,” he said in a statement.
“A drastic problem requires a drastic solution. So what else is the panacea to corruption in Nigeria?
“We believe that it is time to adopt something unconventional; something we have never adopted before; something that costs government no money or effort at all; something revolutionary and mass-oriented; something local and scary and, above all, something in which every Nigerian has an emotional attachment.
“MURIC charges the Nigerian masses to seize their destiny with their hands by mobilising their individual and collective prayer power.
“Greatest Nigerian People! We must curse our oppressors three times daily.
“Curse them in the morning as you rise from bed or from under the bridge if you are homeless. Curse them under the scorching sun as you trek up and down on empty stomachs. Curse them before you go to bed at night.
“Curse them as you roll sleeplessly in bed. Curse them as you sweat profusely in bed when your fan is useless because they have stolen the money meant for electricity supply.
“Curse them as your vehicle crawls on bad roads where you spend hours instead of minutes because they stole all the money allocated to the repair of roads.
“Curse them as you wonder why you are still jobless despite graduating years ago.
