All Nigerians Will Be Treated Equally-Buhari

By Ikenga Chronicles November 3, 2016

President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday, November 3 said that he would treat all Nigerians equally while keeping faith with the oath of office he swore. The President who disclosed this while receiving the Executive Committee Members of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) from 19 Northern States and Abuja, at State House, Abuja maintained that restoring peace is his top priority.

The President, in a statement released by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, called on clerics to promote religious tolerance.

“Restoring peace is top priority. We will enable the law enforcement agencies to combat all forms of violent crimes, and ensure that our people live in peace.”

He urged the clerics to promote religious harmony, by “enhancing understanding among different faiths.”

He also disclosed that the government would maintain the priority it has placed on agriculture and mines and steel development, “to kick-start the economy.”

The Chairman of CAN in the 19 Northern States and Abuja, Rev. Yakubu Pam, said it was not a mistake that God chose President Buhari to lead the country at these challenging times.

“We are ready to support your administration to deliver good governance. You have good intentions for Nigeria, judging from the programmes that have been outlined,” Rev. Pam said.

He also highlighted ethno-religious challenges in the country, freedom of worship, and herdsmen/farmers’ clashes in their discussion with the President.

The CAN leader commended the Buhari administration for the blow dealt Boko Haram insurgents, leading to comparative peace in the North-east, the return of 21 abducted schoolgirls from Chibok, and the anti-corruption war, which he urged “should be fought to the logical conclusion.”
