Buhari meets Ondo monarchs, sues for Peace
Ahead 2019 general elections, President Muhammadu Buhari has urged Nigerians to shun politics of bitterness and embrace peace, so as to consolidate on the gains of democracy.
Buhari said this, yesterday, through the former governor of Abia State and Chairman, Advisory Board of the National Movement for Re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari, Dr. Urji Uzor Kalu, during a meeting with Ondo State monarchs.
Kalu, who was at the palace of Deji of Akure, Oba Aladelusi Aladetoyinbo on Friday and the Osemawe of Ondo, Oba Victor Kiladejo, lamented that some people are stoking enmity against the Federal Government.
He decried people’s attitude and actions geared towards creating disaffection and divisiveness in the nation, saying instead of building unity, they are building disunity.
Said he: “So, I felt I should go round to canvass to major traditional rulers, who have been supporting President Buhari to continue to support him because it is the right and honest thing to do for people who want democracy to thrive.”
As emissary of the president, he noted that the group deemed it right to take the advocacy for peace to palaces, so that monarchs would continue preaching peace to their subjects and domains.
“Some people have come out to attack the President violently and when two generals fight, you know what will happen. It will cause a war. So, we don’t want them to fight and this is why we are going to palaces.
“ Democracy is not built in a day. Democracy is something that evolves. We cannot agree on one person. On the 2019 general elections, he said: “I want to seek your cooperation to continue giving the country purposeful leadership. I seek your support to support the reelection bid of President Mohammadu Buhari.
