President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday said that he will keep faith with the oath of office he swore, and treat all Nigerians equitably.


He made the remark while receiving the Executive Committee Members of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) from 19 Northern States and Abuja, at State House, Abuja.

The President, in a statement by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, also promised to restore peace to all parts of the country.

He said: “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.”

  1. This is a shift from his comments at the first BBC interview that he granted where he declared that he cannot treat those who voted for him in the same way as those who did not. Let's just say he is probably learning now to become president of a Federal Republic.
