Buhari in his message to greet muslims on the Eid-el Fitr celebration said the occasion calls for prayers against insecurity in the country.
He said Nigerians should also pray against those desperate for power who have been using blackmail against the unity of the country.
He said, “We must resist the temptation to retreat into our communities. I urge our political and religious leaders as well as traditional rulers to encourage our citizens to turn towards one another in love and compassion.
“Unity and solidarity among all citizens, Muslims and Christians are imperative especially at a time when our country is faced with multiple challenges, which are surmountable only when we come together as one.
“It is important that we remember how we share, through our faiths, common bonds that should serve to unite us and not allow ourselves to succumb to those who seek to divide us, using our two great religions, for their own selfish advantages.”
