Buhari Speaks On The Only Thing He Can Lay His Life Down For

Published

Buhari described as anti-corruption champion

President Muhammadu Buhari has noted that his aim is to Nigeria as one indivisible entity, adding that he has always been part of the struggle to achieve that.

This, Buhari said while delivering his democracy day speech today in Abuja

Buhari said, “I was involved at close quarters in the struggle to keep Nigeria one. I can, therefore, do no more than dedicating the rest of my life to work for the unity of Nigeria and upliftment of Nigerians.

“In 2002-2003 campaigns and elections, I traveled by road to 34 of the 36 states of the Federation. This year I traveled by air to all 36 states of the Federation.

“Before and during my time in the Armed Forces and in government, I have interacted with Nigerians of all ages and persuasions and different shades of opinion over a period of more than fifty years. And my firm belief is that our people above all want to live in peace and harmony with their fellow Nigerians. They desire an opportunity to better themselves in a safe environment.

“Most of the instances of inter-communal and inter-religious strife and violence were and are still as a result of sponsorship or incitements by ethnic, political or religious leaders hoping to benefit by exploiting our divisions and fault lines, thereby weakening our country.”
