Catholic Bishop of Umuahia Diocese, His Lordship, Rev. Lucius Ugorji, has hailed a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), General Muhammadu Buhari for his religious tolerance which he said is a unifying factor for all people.
The Bishop said this at the burial ceremony of Sir Martin Agwu Ohadiugha, the father in-law  to  Chief Ikechi Emenike, a chieftain of All Progressive Congress (APC) in Abia State, personalities from different walks of life and religions were present.
General Muhammadu Buhari, was one of the attendees at the burial.
He said the fact that, Gen Mohammadu Buhari, a Muslim, could stay through the Christian service without opting to  sympathize with Chief Emenike only in his house  spoke volumes of  his religious tolerance.
“This burial is a unifying factor for all the people of the country to learn that there is no problem living together, as we can see ministers of God of different denominations coming together to worship and pray for the repose of the soul of the dead, including a Muslim like Gen Buhari,” he said.
The funeral service held at the Holy Trinity Catholic Parish, Umule, in Umuahia North local government.
Present at the service were ministers from other denominations, including the Assemblies of God Church and the Methodist Church, were present.
