My religion doesn’t determine my decisions – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday pledged to be just and fair to all Nigerians, irrespective of their religion or ethnicity.

He said neither his personal decisions nor policies of the Federal Government under his watch are influenced by religious prejudice.

The President spoke when the leadership of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), led by its President-General and Sultan of Sokoto Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, paid him a courtesy call at the State House in Abuja.

He warned that stoking ethnic and religious prejudices will not augur well for the development of the country and pledged to uphold religious freedom for everyone.

“The Federal Government will continue to promote religious freedom as it is a constitutional responsibility. I must thank the Muslim ummah for promoting inter-religious dialogue in the country. It is self-evident that if the country must work, we must continue to work together in spite of our ethnic, religious and political differences because Nigeria is our collective project.

”Accordingly, the Federal Government under my leadership does not and will not allow religious prejudice or partisanship to influence any of its decisions and policies. It is my solemn decision to be fair and just to all segments of society”, Buhari said.
