All Progressives Congress (APC), presidential candidate, Gen. Mohammadu Buhari, has called on true patriots to have a deeper reflection of our common freedom, peace and unity, as we approach a crucial election in the history of Nigeria.

According to him, such reflection became more relevant in the face of the illegal postponement of the general election.

Buhari stated this in Abuja after being endorsed by the Northern Christian Leaders Eagle?s Eyes Forum on Thursday.

?We must, at all time, hold the unity, peace and progress of Nigeria above other considerations, especially, politics?, he said.

?Those who, deliberately, disseminate divisive information and attempt to stoke primordial sentiments, using religion or ethnicity to create fear in the minds of our people, have failed the standard of patriotism that Nigeria demands of them?, Buhari added.

He accused the Jonathan administration and PDP of having adopted this divisive and false narrative as ?their strategy to prevent the inevitable change that Nigerians desire.

?They have succeeded in making some of us victims of the tales which they invent, propagate and sell as the gospel truth to gullible listeners, while it is all nothing, but, a tissue of lies.

?I would like to solemnly declare that, despite what our detractors say, I am not a religious fanatic, of any sort, and I have never been. In all my life, I have never supported extremism of any kind, and, nowhere in my record of service to this nation, can this false toga that political opponents have tried, so hard, to put on me, be substantiated?, he explained.

Chairman of the Northern Christian Leaders Eagle?s Eyes Forum, Pastor Aminchi Habu, said the group resolved to support Buhari to enable him bring the desired change in the country.

?Buhari possesses all the qualities required of a leader, as he had been tested and trusted,?? he said.

Habu declared that the forum?s decision to pitch tent with Buhari and his running mate, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, was premised on the track record of the presidential candidate as the only one that could deliver the nation from the ?shackles of corruption imposed on it, by those who had been leading it for the past 16 years?.
