According to report reaching oyogist.com, Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, has called on all good loving Nigerians to put their collection efforts in uplifting the country irrespective of their differences.
The President made this known during a meeting with the leadership of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), at the Aso Rock Presidential villa in Abuja, while also adding that his administration would not allow religious prejudice to affect the policy and affairs of the country.
“The Federal Government will continue to promote religious freedom as it is a constitutional responsibility. I must thank the Muslim ummah for promoting inter-religious dialogue in the country. It is self-evident that if the country must work, we must continue to work together in spite of our ethnic, religious and political differences because Nigeria is our collective project.
“Accordingly, the Federal Government under my leadership does not and will not allow religious prejudice or partisanship to influence any of its decisions and policies. It is my solemn decision to be fair and just to all segments of society.
“The Federal Government has worked tirelessly to combat insecurity and other challenges that are confronting the country. Security is a protracted problem but we are not relenting in our efforts. Not only are we equipping the military, we are also boosting their morale to perform their constitutional duties without undue interference. We are also encouraging locales to enhance their intelligence gathering and timely remitting to the security Agencies.
“I acknowledge that security is the first responsibility of Government but Government cannot do it alone. It requires stakeholders, such as yourselves. Therefore, I urge you to lend your support to the security agencies by providing information that may stem the tide of crimes and insecurity in the society,” President Buhari stated.
