Nigeria is regarded as biggest black nation in the world. Aside from its high population, Nigeria is also blessed with diverse cultures and traditional beliefs. It has two major religions which are christianity and Islam. Despite having diverse cultural and religious beliefs, Nigerians have been living in unity for years.
This would not have been possible without the deliberate efforts of our president and other political and religious leaders. Over the years, president Muhammadu Buhari has shown to Nigerians that we are a united people despite our religious inclinations and beliefs.
In this article, we will take a look at some of the throwback moments when president Buhari demonstrated religious tolerance by welcoming some of our renowned men of God in Nigeria. Although the president have met with several men of God in past, we will only see throwback photos of president Buhari with pastor Kumuyi and Rev Fr Mbaka and Bishop Kuka

3. Bishop Kukah

These photos are nothing but proves that the peace and unity of Nigeria is far beyond any trine or religion. In everything we do, we should try to emulate the president and these great men of God.
