Muhammadu Buhari on Friday in Abuja reassured Nigerians that the unity of the country would remain his paramount objective and that of his government.
The president stated this when he received a delegation of the Tijjaniya Movement led by Sheikh Muhammadu Mahi Ibrahim Inyass at the Presidential Villa.
He also lauded the group for complementing government efforts in bringing social, economic development, and stability in the country by encouraging discipline, unity and spirituality among its members.
While reiterating his remarks on Thursday at the palace of Emir of Bauchi, Alhaji Rilwanu Adamu, after he was presented with the Holy Quran, the President said the gift of Holy Quran was the highest anyone could receive and “a reminder to seek and uphold justice in the service of the nation.”
In his remarks, the leader of the group, Sheikh Muhammadu Mahi Ibrahim Inyass, told the President that members of the group would continue to support and appreciate his ‘‘noble agenda for the benefit of all Nigerians.’’
According to him, this is so because they believe that elected officials must be ‘‘accountable, incorruptible and God fearing.’’
