sultan-of-sokoto.jpgThe Sultan of Sokoto, His Eminence, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III, on Friday called on all leaders to harbour no fear in speaking out the truth.

The sultan was speaking when he received former Head of State, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd) in his palace in Sokoto.

Abubakar said “Traditional rulers are always close to the people in all respect, we feel more pain than any other person on the killings of innocent souls in our society”.

He added that “we had shouldered our responsibility by informing the appropriate quarters on the killings, especially in the northern parts of the country”.

The sultan also called on the people to support leaders that worked for the development of the society because “this will surely encourage the leaders to have more confidence in ruling the society”.

The sultan urged the leaders to have the fear of God in conducting all their activities.

He also thanked the former head of state for the visit, and prayed for all Nigerians to live in peace and have good health.

Earlier, Buhari commended the sultan for his fatherly leadership and for his sustained efforts to ensure the unity of Nigeria.

The All Progressives Congress chieftain thanked the state government for executing people oriented projects.

The host, Governor Aliyu Wamakko, commended Buhari for the visit, saying the doors of his government are always open to welcoming people like him.

Wamakko added that, “our hope is for the country to maintain peace and stability for the good of our people”.

    Interesting words of peace from the Sultan. If all leaders can talk (and act the talk) in such a manner, it is my firm belief that Nigeria would certainly be a better place for all!

    Always,
