The Presidency has cautioned against religious intolerance among the various socio-cultural groups in the country, saying politicisation of religion, as forbidden by the Constitution, has no place in Nigeria.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, in a statement in Abuja, frowned at some political and religious leaders who, he said, were bent on scoring political points from the nation’s religious differences.
According to him, Nigerians must continue to be united in ensuring that they do not subscribe to the terrorists’ message of division.
The Presidential Aide assured that security forces had been working continuously to return those taken hostage by Boko Haram to their families, friends and communities.
He added Christians and Muslims are united in their opposition to Boko Haram and the hatred for decency that the infamous group stands for.
