IPOB crisis: Sultan asks elders to caution people involved in negative actions
Sultan Muhammad Saad Abubakar has appealed to elders and community leaders in the country to call ‘bad ones’ in their domains to order and educate them on the need for peaceful coexistence in their respective geopolitical zones.
“The acts of some few bad ones among us cannot be left to tear the country apart,” he asserted in a statement signed by Secretary to the Sultanate Council, Sokoto Umar Faruk Ladan.
He added: “Those bad ones should be called to order by their elders and community leaders to stop such negative actions.”
The Sultan stressed the need for all Nigerians to live in peace with one another irrespective of their tribal, ethnic or religious differences, adding that Nigeria would continue to remain one nation with a common goal of purposeful development.
He said traditional leaders in the country were doing everything possible to bring the current situation under control and that they would continue to preach peace and love among the diverse communities in their respective domains throughout the country.
“It is the act of God that brought the different tribes, religion and diverse rich and beautiful cultures to come together to form one country, Nigeria and it is He who will protect our sovereignty,” the Sultan stated.
