The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar, says ongoing agitations are symptoms of rot in the Nigerian system.
Abubakar made the remark in Sokoto when Governor of Rivers, Nyesom Wike, paid him a Sallah homage, NAN reports.
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 the misunderstandings and problems in the country.
”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 added.
He also praised Wike for his developmental strides in Rivers State.
