Sidoarjo, NU Online
This was conveyed by President Jokowi during a visit to the progressive pesantren Bumi Shalawat Lebo Sidoarjo, Thursday night (6/9).
Accompanied by the Chief of Expert Staff President Moeldoko, Minister of Religion Lukman Hakim Safudin and East Java Governor Soekarwo, Jokowi invited all Indonesians to maintain harmony and unity.
“Indonesia is a large country, consisting of 34 provinces with a population of 263 million. I advise you to always respect differences, both differences in religion, ethnicity, tradition, customs and local languages,” he said.
On this occasion, Jokowi taught optimism to the students to achieve success. With optimism, the great Indonesian nation will achieve success. He gave an example at the Asien Games yesterday, Indonesia ranked 4th, where it was previously ranked 17. “Thank God, we won rank 4. This is all hard work,” he said.
Jokowi also asked the Indonesian people not to be easily suspicious and had to be prejudiced with others especially when there was a choice of regents, mayors, governors and presidential elections. “Although different choices, the mutual relations between the Indonesian people and fellow Muslims must remain intertwined,” he said.
On the occasion, President Jokowi also gave three units of bicycles to two students and one student, after they were able to guess the questions posed by the president. ( Moh Kholidun / Muiz )top
