President Muhammadu Buhari said his administration is going to forge a strong, united nation from the country’s various religious and ethnic communities.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria, this was confirmed by the President when he received the Tijjaniyya Muslim Religious Movement at the State House, Abuja, on Monday.
Buhari celebrated the mutual understanding between the adherents of the country’s two major religions, Islam and Christianity.
He said, “It is generally said that differences divide people.
“We in Nigeria understand that there is no way a misunderstanding can cause division among us. We are one people.
“The requirements of our people, whatever religion they follow, and to whatever ethnic group they belong in Nigeria is the same.
‘‘They need security, education and participation in an inclusive economy. On this, we are being very fair to all Nigerians.”
