Sultan of Sokoto sues for peace amongst Nigerians

His eminence, the Sultan of Sokoto Abubakar Sa’ad has enjoined to close ranks and work for as well as show respect to their individual religions bearing in mind that all are the creations of God.

The Sultan also called  on to discountenance the call for break up which he said is emanating from the elite. 
The Sultan of Sokoto who gave this injunction on Wednesday at the meeting of the National stated no human being chose where to come from. He then urged to add value into one another 
According to him, “as individuals we need to add value into ourselves and we should know that we did not create ourselves, God created and when God was creating he did not ask where do you want me to bring you into the world. We just found ourselves in some various places. 

“So what we need to do is to see who we are and work for because we are individuals, yes, but we have to close rank and work for and while we are working for you have to respect your own religion, if you respect your own religion you see what is right and wrong for you. 

“The only point I want to add is that I grow in a family where an Igbo man was the closest person to my father and he was entering any part of the palace and he died in the palace at one hundred and twelve years. His grave is right behind my palace there. That was what we know before,” he stated.”

According to him, before there was nothing like whether this person is a Yoruba, Igbo, Hausa or whatever. We saw ourselves as human beings and if we continue to live like that there will be no problem. We as we have to know that we are going to account for this that God gave on the final day. 

“So please let look at the various problems we have, let look at being our brothers’ keeper. We should not allow the elites to break because they are the ones shouting break up.”
