President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday said his administration will continue to promote unity and peaceful co-existence of all Nigerians by ensuring fairness and social justice to all.
He made the promise while receiving Sheikh Abdul-Muhsin Muhammad Al-Qassimi, Imam of the Mosque of the Holy Prophet in Medina, at the State House, Abuja.
The President said God had a purpose for bringing people from different ethnic backgrounds into one country, Nigeria.
“God knows best- a population of 180 million people comprising more than 300 ethnic groups many of them with cultural ties stronger than religion can only co-exist peacefully in an atmosphere of social justice,’’ he said.
He urged Muslims and all other citizens to imbibe and practice social justice as a norm and prayed to Allah to guide his government in doing the same.
