Buhari calls for unity, support for leaders


Former President Muhammadu Buhari has called for unity among Nigerians and support for the country’s current political leadership.

Buhari, in a Sallah message by Garba Shehu, his media aide, on Wednesday, noted the imperative of supporting those steering the affairs of the nation at all levels of governance.

According to Shehu, Buhari spoke to journalists after observing the Eid prayer, Wednesday, in Daura where he congratulated the Muslims on the successful completion of the 30-day Ramadan fasting.

“Support for our leaders is a vote for a better tomorrow. It is also imperative that we stand united in safeguarding the sovereignty and integrity of our nation,” the former president said.

He urged occupants of political offices to always ensure a smooth succession from one administration to another without stoking communal tensions and obstructing development.

Buhari thanked the people of Daura in Katsina State for giving him a warm welcome.
