Buhari Warns Against Divisive Statements


President Muhammadu Buhari has warned Nigerians against making divisive statements.

Buhari, who is on medical leave in the UK, made this known in a message on the occasion of Eid-el-Fitr.

According to a statement issued by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, the president urged all citizens to live together in peace.

“I am immensely grateful to God for his mercy in guiding us successfully to conclude another Ramadan fast. My greetings to all Nigerian Muslims and our brother Christians on the occasion of Eid-el-Fitr.

“May the lessons of Ramadan namely; piety, self-denial, prayers and generosity to the poor and needy be with us for all time.

“I, again, appeal to all Nigerians to avoid reckless statements or actions against our fellow countrymen. We should all resolve to live in peace and unity in our great country, which is the envy of many less endowed nations,” Buhari said.
