Presidential spokesman, Mr Femi Adesina said President Muhammadu Buhari desires to see that peace and unity reign in all parts of the country.
He said this on Friday while receiving some Nollywood actors, members of the National Council for Women Society (NCWS), amongst others at the State House, Abuja.
“Mr President is actuated by nothing else than peace and unity of the country, many times he has said that those of them that fought for the unity of Nigeria will not sit down with their eyes open and see the country dismembered in their presence.
“What Mr President wants is peace, unity and whatever it takes for Nigeria to have peace, she will have it. I remembered I did a piece recently where I said for Nigeria, it is ‘Peace Dole’ (Peace by Force).”
“The idea of this movement, Ambassadors of Voice for Change, is very good. I am sure it is God that inspired it.
“We know that there are lots of forces attempting to pull the country apart but if the country will stay together (and it will stay together), we need initiatives like this, we need voices like this, we need ambassadors like this,” he said.
“It is in our collective interest that Nigeria survives. Our collective interest is that our unity in diversity is maintained so that we remain together in peace and unity, and there is strength in unity.”
He thanked and assured the Voice for Change Ambassador’s executives for the timely initiative, saying that his office will lend itself to project it.
Zack Orji expressed their readiness to collaborate with the security agencies and Nigerians to ensure that there is peace and unity in the country.
“There is no way the government is going to work alone without the cooperation of the people, this movement will cover the 36 States of the Federation.
“We aim to engage roadshows, town hall meetings, rallies and all kinds of meetings to sensitize people so they can be on the same bandwagons as ourselves.”
The group commended the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari on its effort to restore peace and unity in the country and assured him of their continued support.
