He said:

“Our destinies are intertwined as members of this family of Nigeria. Our language, creed, ethnicity and religious beliefs, even when they differ, should never make us work against each other.”

He then proceeded to extend an invitation to his opponents to collaborate in making Nigeria better:

“In this new year, let us resolve that as co-owners of the Nigerian Commonwealth, we will work for the peace, progress and stability of our country. I extend this invitation to my political adversaries in the last election. The election is over. It’s time for all of us to work together for the sake of our country.

The address came amid outrage and accusations that the president has neglected his primary duty as the protector of security for vulnerable lives in the country.
