The President-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari,  has been advised to be more circumspect in his public utterances, given the multi-cultural and political nature of the country.

A rights group, Intersociety for Civil Liberties and the Rule of Law (Intersociety), said the President seems unmindful of the heterogeneous nature of the country.

The group, therefore, advised the All Progressives Congress (APC) to arrange a training programme for the President.

In a statement signed by its Chairman, Board of Director, Emeka Umeagbalasi, along with Uzochukwu Oguejiofor-Nwonu, Head, Campaign and Publicity Department, Mr. Chiugo Onwuatuegwu, Head, Democracy and Good Governance Programme and Obianuju Igboeli, Head, Civil Liberties & Rule of Law Programme, the group said: “As the President-elect, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari ought to be a statesman and father of all to be able to govern smoothly, happily and prosperously a country like Nigeria, which has over 250 ethnic groups and multi-religions to its credit, the President-elect also ought to be fair and accommodating in his referenced public comments.
