Christian or Muslim, We Are All Children Of Abraham – Buhari Says As He Vows To Rescue Leah Sharibu

President Muhammadu Buhari has once again made a vow to end insurgency and terrorism in Nigeria as well as rescue Leah Sharibu, the only remaining Dapchi girl who was kidnapped alongside 110 others 2years ago.

Leah Sharibu as reported, was a Christian girl who refused to compromise her faith and convert to Islam, thus the Boko Haram terrorists refused to release her alongside others.

President Buhari urged all Christians and Muslims in Nigeria to continue to seek peace and live as one, not allowing the terrorists to divide them as everyone, irrespective of religion is a child of Abraham.

His statement below;

“Two years ago, 110 innocent children from the town of Dapchi were taken, against their will, by the terrorists of Boko Haram. 107 survived the ordeal. Today all but one – Leah Sharibu – are returned to their families.

“Now aged 16, Leah remains in the hands of the terrorists – they say because she refuses to renounce her Christian faith.

“We say, as the government for and of all Nigerians, that no person has the right to force another to change their faith against their will and that all life is sacred.

“This government continues and seeks to secure the release of all children and captives of terrorists – and we do so regardless of their creed or the name of their creator.

“As we redouble our efforts for Leah’s return, we can never allow the terrorists to divide us – Christian against Muslim, Muslim against Christian. We are all Sons of Abraham. And all Nigerians have the same worth and rights before the law, and before God.

“Muhammadu Buhari,
President and Commander-in Chief,

“I stood up against them, I said: ‘We are not a corrupt nation. A few people might have stolen money, but Nigeria is not a corrupt nation.
