He said this at the 8th edition of the Annual Lagos Thanksgiving Service that held yesterday. Buhari said religion must never be used to divide the nation or be used by anyone to oppress or gain unfair advantage.
“I am honoured to participate in this year’s edition of the Lagos Thanksgiving Service. I am glad to know that this year’s service has brought together Nigerians of all faiths just to thank and praise the Almighty God for his mercies. This is how it should be. Religion must never be used to divide or oppress others or gain unfair advantage. All my life, I have always held the belief that all Nigerians must be fee to worship God according to their beliefs. The duty of government is not religion, the duty of government is to ensure peace, security of all Nigerians, regardless of tribe, race or religion. And this is a commitment all of us must make in this service” He said
