Buhari speaks on peaceful coexistence among muslims, christians


President Muhammadu Buhari has urged Nigerians of all faiths to coexist peacefully.

Buhari stated this on Saturday in Katsina at the closing ceremony of the 32nd National Qur’anic Recitation Competition.

Represented by Minister of State for Aviation, Sen. Hadi Sirika, Buhari said “All the Books of Almighty Allah teaches us same thing, that is how to live in peace with one another.

“It is clear that Quran is the greatest encyclopedia which contains all aspects of human life. Quran teaches us how to be fair and just to all including the non-Muslims.

“It has also been stated that during the lifetime of the Prophet Muhammad, Peace be Upon Him, when Muslims were being persecuted, he asked them to migrate to a Christian Kingdom in Ethiopia, where they lived peacefully,” he said.

Sultan of Sokoto, urged states and local governments in the country to intensify efforts towards ensuring peace in their domains.

“It is only with adequate peace that competition like this can take place,” he said.

He also urged Nigerians to strive and register in the ongoing voter registration as the 2019 general elections approaches.

“It is only with a voter card that Nigerians can elect leaders of their choice who will protect their interests,” the monarch noted,
