Buhari, who was represented by the former secretary to the government of the federation, Boss Mustapha, at the southeast post-election peace conference/summit organised by the National Council of Traditional Rulers of Nigeria (NCTR) in Imo state, promised that his administration would continue to make necessary efforts to ensure peaceful coexistence of the country.

Asking Nigerians not to despair, Buhari declared that the country’s situation was not insurmountable and would soon end.
