- Femi Adesina has urged Nigerians to work together for the good of the country
- Adesina said President Buhari's re-election will help him to continue his work towards reuniting Nigeria
- The president's spokesperson also accused some people of seeking to cause disunity in the country
As President Muhammadu Buhari is re-elected for a second term in office, the presidency on Wednesday, February 27, called on all Nigerians irrespective of religious or political affiliations to work together for the good of the country.
President Buhari's special adviser on media and publicity, Femi Adesina, who made the call on a Channels TV's programme, said the president will work hard to continue building the unity needed in this country.
He said: "You will recall that in 2015, the President inherited a country that was badly fractured. He was working towards reuniting the country but there were some people hell-bent on emphasizing the things that divide us rather than the things that can unite us.
“And I suspect that they were doing it towards the 2019 elections. Now that the elections have come and gone, it’s time for everybody to team up to ensure that we have a cohesive large country."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that the Buhari Youth Organisation (BYO), Lagos state chapter on Wednesday, February 27, said President Buhari’s re-election is a call for more achievements and he cannot afford to fail the people.
