President Muhammadu Buhari has said that his greatest wish is the courage to be fair to all Nigerians irrespective of religious, tribal and cultural backgrounds.

Speaking in Abuja on Friday, October 7, 2016 while receiving Sheikh Abdul-Muhsin Muhammad Al-Qassimi, Imam of the Mosque of the Holy Prophet in Medina, Saudi Arabia, Buhari said his administration would continue to promote unity and peaceful co-existence of all Nigerians by ensuring fairness and social justice to all.

He said: “God knows best- a population of 180 million people comprising more than 300 ethnic groups many of them with cultural ties stronger than religion can only co-exist peacefully in an atmosphere of social justice.

I pray that God gives us the courage to be fair to the people he put in our charge so that we can enjoy his mercy,’’ he said.

Buhari expressed further that with all he had been through in life, he had learnt ‘‘an important lesson about social justice.’’

The President also commended the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for their efforts to create a better understanding and practice of Islam.
