“We are de­ter­mined to break­away form the past prac­tice of com­mit­ting Nige­ria to treaties with­out a def­i­nite im­ple­men­ta­tion plan to ac­tu­al­ize the ex­pected ben­e­fits while mit­i­gat­ing the risks. We can­not go back to the days of sign­ing agree­ments with­out un­der­stand­ing and plan­ning for the con­se­quences of such ac­tions and our coun­try be­ing the worst for it.”

- Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari. “We have all seen how re­li­gious lead­ers man­podi­ums, both Is­lamic and Chris­tian, and say so many things at will, some are even politi­cians wear­ing cas­socks or tur­bans. We have seen pas­tors on the podium talk­ing about the out­come of elec­tions, we have seen imams at preach­ing ses­sions telling the peo­ple what to do and what not to do. It is im­por­tant for us as re­li­gious lead­ers to be wary of what we say, how we say it and where we say it and that is why we have to be care­ful as we say out on na­tional se­cu­rity or gov­er­nance.”

- Sul­tan of Sokoto, Al­haji Muham­madu Sa’ad Abubakar III.
