Bombshell! Agitations symptom of rot in Nigerian system – Sultan
The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Saad Abubakar says ongoing agitations in the country are symptoms of rot in the Nigerian system.
Abubakar disclosed this in Sokoto when Gov. Nyesom Wike of Rivers paid him a Sallah homage.
The sultan said: ”In the past, a lot of things were done by some people with impunity and nothing was done.
”That is why you find lack of good governance now weighing us down now in the country.
”However, as it is now, no matter how bad your hand is, you cannot cut it and throw away,” the monarch said.
Abubakar stressed the need to use dialogue to resolve all misunderstandings and problems in the country.
The royal father said Nigerians should sit together, brainstorm, look at what went wrong, retrace our steps and move forward.
The sultan also appealed to statesmen in the nation to intervene and assist in this direction.
According to the monarch, we are not short of statesmen across the country and they should help in championing the dialogue.
”We should not allow sentiments to rule our heads. Nigeria is a very big and lucky country and we have no any other nation we can call our own.
”We should love one another irrespective of any religious, ethnic or cultural differences,” Abubakar said.NAN
