Former President Muhammadu Buhari has called for support for the country’s leaders, adding that it is imperative to stand united in safeguarding the sovereignty and integrity of the nation.

The former president, in his Sallah message, also told Nigerians to support their leaders from the lowest to the topmost at this crucial juncture of democracy.

Speaking to journalists in Daura, shortly after observing the Eid prayer on Wednesday morning, former President Buhari congratulated fellow Muslims on the successful completion of the 30-day Ramadan fasting and the performance of the Eid.

In a statement issued by Mallam Garba Shehu, he urged “all citizens to support our leaders from the local government level to the highest at the centre in their efforts to transform the development landscape of the nation. 

“Support for our leaders,” he further stated, “is a vote for a better tomorrow.

“It is imperative that we stand united in safeguarding the sovereignty and integrity of our nation” and called on contestants to political offices in our elections “to always ensure a smooth succession from one administration to another without stoking communal tensions and obstructing development, irrespective of political party affiliation.”

He expressed his appreciation to the people of Daura, his hometown, and the state in general for giving him a warm welcome, as indicated by the massive crowd at the Eid prayer ground.

Former President Buhari expressed his happiness at being in the midst of his people after he finished his term as president.
