Nigeria's President, Muhammadu Buhari.

President Muhammadu Buhari says he will keep faith with the oath of office he swore and treat all Nigerians equitably.

He was speaking while receiving the Executive Committee Members of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, from 19 Northern States and Abuja, at the State House on Thursday.

The President equally pledged to restore peace to all parts of the country.

 “Restoring peace is top priority. We will enable the law enforcement agencies to combat all forms of violent crimes and ensure that our people live in peace,’’ he noted.

Promoting religious harmony
President Buhari urged the clerics to promote religious harmony by enhancing understanding among different faiths.

He also said that the government would maintain the priority it had placed on agriculture and mines and steel development, to kick-start the economy.

The Chairman of CAN in the 19 Northern States and Abuja, Reverend Yakubu Pam said that it was not a mistake that God chose President Buhari to lead the country at these challenging times.

“We are ready to support your administration to deliver good governance. You have good intentions for Nigeria, judging from the programmes that have been outlined,” Reverend Pam said.
