The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III, has urged Nigerian leaders to fear Allah and support the citizens out of hardship.
Sultan who is also the President-General Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, made this known on Tuesday in his Sallah message in Sokoto State.
He noted that the hardship in the country is no longer a story but a reality as people are in dire need of the leaders’ commitment to addressing it.
“Nigeria leaders need to strategise more measures to address our level of poverty and insecurity, as such will further sustain the unity and peaceful co-existence that is in existence in the country.
“It is no longer a story but a reality; people are in dire need of the leaders’ commitment to addressing the high rate of poverty, insecurity, and hunger among other numerous challenges.”
The monarch encouraged the leaders to fear Allah and shoulder their responsibilities.
“Therefore, leaders should fear Allah and shoulder their responsibilities in order to enhance Nigerians’ living conditions,” the Sultan said.
