President Muhammadu Buhari, Thursday stated that he holds former President Goodluck Jonathan in high esteem because he willingly accepted the outcome of 2015 presidential election.
He noted that for that singular act, the immediate former President will always be at the back of his mind.
Speaking at the State House when he hosted members of the Kannywood entertainment industry to a dinner, Buhari noted that it was an act of wickedness for some group of people to kill innocent citizens in the name of God.
He also assured that the activities of the dreaded Boko Haram sect in the Northern part of the country would soon become a history.
Buhari said, “It’s totally wrong for any believer in God to kill innocent people either in the Mosque, Church or the marketplace.
“You can’t be shouting Allahu Akbar (Allah is Great), Allahu Akbar, and killing innocent citizens and destroying property all in the name of God.
“It is either you don’t know what you are saying or you don’t even believe in the existence of God Almighty. God has nothing to do with injustice.
“So, now we are confronting them and by the grace of God, we will destroy them.’’
On Jonathan, the President added, “I’ll continue to hold former president, Jonathan in high esteem as a result of that singular act.
