He said the Federal Government was ready to contend with people who would work against the peace and unity of the country.
According to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, the President spoke while receiving the Offor of Umuofor Kingdom, Oguta Local Government Area of Imo State, Eze Abdulfatah Emetumah III, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Thursday.
“Anybody that tries to joke with the unity of this country has a problem as long as we are alive,” Buhari said.
The President told members of the delegation led by the monarch, who is also the Chief Imam of Oguta, that his main objective of serving as an elected public office holder was to make the country better.
“Our single objective is how to make Nigeria better and we will never get tired,” he said.
Buhari, who thanked the delegation for identifying with the progress made so far by this administration in moving the nation forward, assured them that their well thought-out recommendations on engendering unity in the country would be considered.
