The Nigerian President, President Muhammadu Buhari has urged Nigerians to tolerate one another and promote peaceful co-existence as the country prepares for the 2019 general elections.

The President stated this yesterday while receiving a group known as the National Network for Community and Youth Development (NNCYD) led by former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Alhaji Yayale Ahmed.

President Buhari explained that the promotion of peaceful co-existence was a responsibility of all citizens who have a task of stopping selfish politicians from exploring the windows of religion and ethnicity to achieve their ill – motives.

The President commended the NNCYD for promoting peaceful coexistence among followers of different religions and political parties in Nigeria.

While commending the group for its good work, Buhari said the country needs more of such good groups, in order to promote peaceful coexistence and mutual understanding among citizens of the country.

He, however, lamented the dangers involved in the spreading of rumours through social media, which he said was meant to reshape the world.

“We are seeing rising instances where social media platforms are being used to propagate hatred, through religious, political and tribal groups.

These spiteful mes-sage that insight violence and are posted by a handful of unpatriotic people anonymously.” he stated

Yayale, who is Chairman of the Board of Trustees for the organisation said the group aims at enlightening citizens of the country on the need to love one another, love the country and identify with good governance.

He said the group had since identified President Buhari as a champion of integrity and it will continue to support him.

Ahmed said though corruption is seriously fighting back, President Buhari should maintain the fight, adding that with the support of few who are committed to the fight, he will surely succeed.
