+ Advocates For Peaceful Coexistence Among Youths
Wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Buhari, has said that the unity and stability of Nigeria cannot be compromised.
She, therefore, called on women to advocate peaceful coexistence among Nigerian youths.
According to a statement on Sunday by her Director of Information, Suleiman Haruna, the President’s wife spoke while breaking her fast (Iftar) among women leaders at the Banquet Hall, Presidential Villa, Abuja on Saturday.
According to Mrs. Buhari, breaking of fast among friends promotes the oneness of purpose.
“We are friends because we all share a common bond to strengthen unity and harmony in Nigeria,” she said.
She reminded mothers of the need to promote the spirit of peaceful coexistence among their children, the youths, who are used negatively by different interest groups.
“Fasting reflects sacrifice, self-denial and ultimate obedience to the will of God; iftar reflects rebirth, renewal and rejuvenation,” she said.
She noted that Nigerians should yearn for renewal in the polity in terms of peaceful coexistence.
Wife of the Vice President, Mrs. Dolapo Osinbajo, who remarked that fasting and prayers were ways to glorify God for all that He had done for humanity, highlighted the many reasons why people needed to be thankful to God.
