“Our country is about people who God put together so that we can build a country that will be a pride to the world.”

Acting President Osinbajo was really convinced when he made this comment at the breaking of fast by Muslims, Iftar, on Thursday.

The programme held in association with the Christian faithful at the Conference Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The Acting President in his remark declared that the future of the country was greater than its present and he looked forward to that future.

He said the country required men and women who could do greater things for the nation at this time and not those spreading hate against others.

According to him a lot of the hate notions being spread were used to advance the interests of the preachers only rather than the interest of the country.

“Any time people operate along the law of unity, they will achieve more.

He said God did not make a mistake in putting the country together and urged all Nigerians to always remember that the nation was meant to be a weapon in God’s hands for Him to do greater things for the people.

The Acting President noted that hate only appealed to the lowest people adding that the motives behind hate were both faulty and hypocritical.

Wife of the President organized the Iftar to bring the Muslim and Christian faithful together towards achieving greater unity among the various religious organisations in the country.

Mrs Buhari was represented by the Minister of Interior, Gen. Abdulrahman Dambazau (rtd.).

She urged Nigerians to remain steadfast in their prayers for the country and thanked them for their prayers for the quick recovery of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Osinbajo thanked Mrs Buhari for the idea.
