My administration committed to national unity, religious harmony – Buhari

PRESIDENT  Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday, said his administration was committed to national unity and religious harmony  and urged Nigerians to embrace the effort.

He gave the assurance during the 10th Anniversary of Muslim Ummah of South West Nigeria, MUSWEN, and N5 billion launch of MUSWEN International Centre in Ibadan. The News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, reports that the president’s message was read at the event by Mr Adamu Adamu, the Minister of Education. Buhari urged religious leaders to embrace religious tolerance to achieve peaceful co-existence and national unity, re-stating his administration’s commitment to religious harmony and national unity.

The president commended MUSWEN and its leaders for “their contributions to national growth and development.” In his remarks, Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State acknowledged MUSWEN’s support and contributions to the successes recorded by his administration.

He appealed to religious leaders to disseminate message of tolerance, unity, peace and tranquility in their sermons, particularly as the 2019 general election draws nearer. Ajimobi said it was only in the atmosphere of peace that development and growth could thrive in any society.

Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar, the Sultan of Sokoto, urged all to always extend hands of fellowship to others, irrespective of religious beliefs, ethnicity and status in the society.

He counseled Nigerians to eschew the use of foul languages on others even when they felt so much aggrieved, saying the nation could only achieve greatness through tolerance and unity of purpose.

The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi, in a keynote address entitled “Muslim Voice on Good Governance”, said the topic was timely considering the challenges facing the country. He said: “Muslims should be at the fore front in advocating and leading with examples in good governance.”
