Eid-El-Kabir; President Buhari Gifts Cows, Cash to Corp Members.

President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday admonished Nigerians to pursue things that promote national unity rather than dissipate energy on divisive actions.

The President noted that despite cultural or ethnic differences, Nigerians were better off as a united people under one nation.

He described the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) as one scheme that has, since its inception in May 1973, promoted national cohesion.

President Buhari spoke at his country home in Daura, Katsina State, when members serving in the ancient town paid him a Sallah homage in commemoration of this year’s Eid-El-Kabir.

He said the NYSC had broadened the horizon of citizens, opened up opportunities and enhanced the understanding of cultural differences.

The President added that he had consistently praised former Head of State, Gen. Yakubu Gowon, for the initiative, which, according to him, has created more opportunities for uniting the country.

President Buhari urged NYSC members to make the most out of the opportunity of travelling around the country, especially in understanding different climates, cultures, languages, and the nation’s views on life.
