from Bello Wakili

President Muhammadu Buhari has vowed to protect all religious and ethnic groups, whether majority or minority in line with its responsibility under the constitution.

This was contained in a statement signed by the senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity Mallam Garba Shehu

He said In a reaction to reports of breakout of violence in some parts of the country by some ethnic and sectional groups, President Buhari warned that government would not allow any ethnic or religious group to stoke up hatred and violence against other groups.

The President condemned such violence and gave assurance that his government would act decisively to stop its spread.

He appealed to religious and traditional leaders as well governors and other elected leaders across the country to join hands with Federal Government to ensure communities in their domain were not splintered along ethnic and other primordial lines.
