President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed what has kept Nigeria together despite several calls for secession and political crises which had thrown the country into a civil war.
During a visit to the Palace of the Emir of Daura, Dr. Faruk Umar, the President said that the ‘grace of God’ is responsible for keeping the nation together.
He said: “We want to thank God always for keeping us together as a country. From January 15, 1966, the country was thrown into political crisis. We had a 30-month civil war that resulted in the loss of about a million lives”.
“We still thank God for keeping us together. We remain grateful to all those who showed interest in our unity and progress. May God continue to bless them,” he added.
Buhari’s Message To Businessmen And Contractors
The President asked businessmen, contractors and other privileged Nigerians that benefits from the government to always engage in Corporate Social Responsibility.
He said he does not want “cheques” or any form of gratification from any organisation or individuals seeking to favour him with gifts.
Buhari said: “I don’t want your cheque. Go and assist our communities” instead of trying to return kickbacks to public officers, including his office.
“We don’t want cheques from anyone or organisations as returns or influence of any kind. Let them remember their Corporate Social Responsibilities,” he added.
KanyiDaily recalls that President Buhari had also asked Nigerian youths to behave well if they want jobs because no investor will invest in an insecure environment.
