Sultan Of Sokoto’s Shocker

sultan_of_sokoto-SaadSultan of Sokoto, Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar IV bares his mind on national issues recently: “If the person is arrested, the next thing you hear is that it is because he does not belong to the political party; what is bad is bad. Whether he is a Muslim or Christian or APC or PDP, remove all these and let him answer his name, a criminal, you have stolen government money.”

“But once we start using tribe among others to claim right, it is not good. We must all rise up and help government to get the money back. There is need to begin to listen to the cry of the common man, to understand their needs rather than just carrying out projects.”

“Of what use is it to be building airports worth billions of naira when the roads that the common man travels are bad? Instead of having an airport in Birnin Kebbi, that hardly sees one flight in one year and then, you have an airport in Dutse that only lifts pilgrims; then you have an airport in Kaduna in Bauchi and Gombe and another one in Ekiti, in Markudi and so on, while the roads which the common man uses for his day to day activities is so bad.”
