The President noted that it was high time the state heads played into the ideals of federalism at a political and democratic dispensation as this, where some scanty but privileged persons were exploiting and manipulating ethnic and religious front-lines for their selfish advantages. “We need to build bridges across the various divides”, he said.

Buhari urged the governors to support his anti-corruption agenda, and his administration’s programmes and policies in order to hasten development in the country.
