According to the President,  “peaceful coexistence is necessary for the progress of any society and its wellbeing.”

“No culture and religion support the disregard for the sanctity of life”.

Buhari said without communal harmony, the environment for the conduct of “our everyday businesses would be impossible to achieve.”
