IPOB cri­sis: Sul­tan asks elders to cau­tion peo­ple in­volved in neg­a­tive ac­tions

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Rakiya A.Muham­mad,Sokoto

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.
