President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed belief that Nigeria’s existence as one united country is a divine arrangement and "nothing should be done to put it asunder."
President Buhari, according to a statement by his spokesman Mr Femi Adesina, said this on Wednesday while felicitating with Christians in the country on the solemn occasion of the commencement of this year’s Lenten season.
Buhari urged Christian brothers and sisters, as they joined their counterparts worldwide in emulating the worthy example of Jesus Christ who fasted at the beginning of his earthly ministry, to pray fervently for Nigerian unity and progress.
President Buhari also enjoined all Nigerians to intensify love, brotherliness and concern for the less privileged members of their communities in order to strengthen the bond of togetherness.
As Christians began the period of increased prayers, piety, sacrifice and selfless services, the president wished them and all Nigerians well.
