2019: Buhari Peaches Peace, launches Unity Band

President Muhammadu Buhari has launched the “Unity Band” which is pointed at keeping Nigerians united ahead of the 2019 general elections.


On Thursday the President made the launching at an occasion organised by the Good Governance Ambassadors of Nigeria (GOGAN), in Abuja.

He urged Nigerians to wear the wristband as a symbol of steadfastness to put an end to the violence that happened in preceding elections.

He stated that, “By the grace of God, we shall remain strong and united, our country has passed through difficult times, on occasions threatening the foundations of our unity, but with the help of God, we have always emerged from each crisis stronger.

“There is no doubt that we still have pockets of issues that question our unity, but we are convinced that, with the determination of all Nigerians, we shall remain strong and united.

“The Buhari Unity Band is a visual and token symbol of our resolve to live in unity as one and to preach the message of unity wherever we live”.

The launch of the wristbands comes three days to the kick off of the campaigns of the forthcoming 2019 elections which the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) fixed for November 18, 2018.
