While expressing appreciation for the prayers from congregations such as the Tijjaniyyah, the President appealed to all religious groups to continue to preach peace, particularly among the youth.

 

Sheikh Muhammadul-Kabir, and other clerics accompanying him from several African countries, commended President Buhari for nurturing peaceful coexistence among all religious adherents in the country.
