DAILY POST reported that President Buhari reappointed Kyari as Chief of Staff (COS) on Friday.
Kyari was first appointed as COS on 27th August, 2015.
MURIC described the development as reward for loyalty, efficacy and dedication.
This was contained in a press statement issued to DAILY POST by the Director of MURIC, Professor Ishaq Akintola, on Friday.
It added, “We warmly congratulate the Chief of Staff on his reappointment. It is a reward for loyalty, efficacy and dedication. We charge him to rededicate himself to the challenges ahead and to emulate Mr. President in everything he does.
“COS sir, all Nigerians have the right to get attention. Treat all fairly regardless of ethnic, religious, political or ideological leaning. Remember that Nigeria is a complex society where looters are worshipped like gods and lies run faster than the speed of light. It is only uprightness and transparency that can vindicate a leader. We, therefore, demand from you total, unlimited and undiluted loyalty to the president. To whom much is given, much is expected.”
The organisation also hailed Boss Mustapha on his reappointment as Secretary to the Federal Government (SGF).
“By the same token, we felicitate with the Secretary to the Federal Government (SGF), Boss Mustapha, who was also reappointed today. Boss Mustapha has a singular responsibility to douse religious tension in the country and to debunk wrongful allegations of lopsided appointments and the myth of Islamisation.
“Finally, we assert clearly, categorically and unequivocally that MURIC and the rest of the Nigerian Muslim community repose full confidence in COS Abba Kyari and will continue to cooperate with the Buhari administration,” it said.
Kogi govt detaining APC delegates in BIR
He made the disclosure at a political gathering while hosting the gubernatorial aspirant and former Chief of Naval Staff, Jibrin Usman in Lokoja.
Maiyaki explained that intimidation and harassment of party executives who were perceived not to be loyal to the governor have been heightened ahead of August 29 primaries.
“As I speak, some of our delegates have been detained at the Board of Internal Revenue in Lokoja.
“Yesterday, when I was going round to mobilise party executive for this event, I was informed that some of them were tricked to BIR and have been detained there.”
In an interview after the event, the party chieftain said, the governor did not want any gubernatorial aspirant to access the APC party Executive before the primaries.
He called on security agents to ensure the protection of party delegates and members, adding that it would be a shame for the party to keep losing members simply because they want to exercise their franchise.

Hundreds of the workers who came to work late were still locked outside the main gate by the time the governor left the secretariat a few minutes before 10am.
Katsina-Ala unrest: Benue security council suspends chiefs
The suspension of the chiefs followed recommendation of the Benue State Security Council after its emergency meeting in Makurdi yesterday.
Governor Samuel Ortom read the Council’s resolutions during a marathon meeting with stakeholders from the local government area also held yesterday at the New Banquet Hall of the Benue Peoples House, Makurdi.
He stated that the traditional rulers had neglected their duties and exhibited nonchalance towards efforts aimed at resolving the crisis.
The Governor noted that the traditional rulers had instead, resorted to fuelling the crisis based on vested interests, thereby contravening the code of conduct enshrined in the Local Government and Chieftaincy Law of the State.
The affected traditional rulers are to face a panel to be constituted by the Tor Tiv to investigate them and determine appropriate sanctions.
According to the Governor, the Council also directed that all the District Heads from the area who declined invitation to attend a security meeting with Tor Sankera, Chief Abu King Shuluwa would be queried to explain why disciplinary actions should not be taken against them.
He said Council also warned the Tor Sankera to be a father to all his subjects and eschew sentiments and personal interest, pointing out that he should work with all his subjects to ensure peace in his domain.
Governor Ortom said security agencies were directed by Council to go after criminal elements responsible for the unrest in the area and also arrest and prosecute any politician found culpable in the violence.
The Governor urged the people of Katsina-Ala to go about their normal businesses without fear of molestation and report suspicious elements to security operatives for prompt action, adding that the President had already given marching orders to security agencies to tackle banditry in the country.
