Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) and the Jama’tu Nasril Islam (JNI), have congratulated President Muhammad Buhari on his reelection victory.
The NSCIA message signed by the council’s Media Committee Chairman, Alhaji Femi Abbas, wished President Buhari another successful tenure as president of the country.
While enjoining Mr. President to continue to do his best in the interest of the country, he urged him to be fair and firm in leading Nigeria despite several challenges.
The JNI statement signed by its Secretary-General, Shaykh Khalid Abubakar said they are grateful to Allah for the peaceful and successful conduct of the 2019 Presidential and National Assembly Elections as well as the subsequent declaration of the winner.
The Sultan said the absence of peace was tantamount to state of anarchy which must be avoided no matter the concerns.
He further said the contestants must not fuel the embers of hatred nor beat the drum of war amongst the peoples.
