Sa’ad Abubakar: Nigerian Masses In Difficult Times by agwom(m): 6:13am On Feb 09
... Urges leaders to do more

The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III, yesterday urged Nigerian leaders to do more in order to take the country out of its present challenges, saying citizens of the country are going through difficult times. He spoke at the 45th anniversary of the Emir of Zazzau, Alhaji Shehu Idris, in Zaria, Kaduna State. He said: “We are here to pray for the emir for good end and reward from Allah for the leadership he provided not only for the Zazzau Emirate, but the entire country. We are therefore grateful to our clerics for reminding us of the divine instruction of turning back to Allah in any difficult situation. We take solace in these reminders. They are our source of relief.

“We are calling on our leaders to sympathise more with the masses. Everyone knows that we are in difficult times. There is nothing that is above Allah’s powers. Ours is to continue to pray and we are praying for our leaders. People of Zazzau, you should brace up and pray for the president, Kaduna State governor and other leaders at all levels. You shouldn’t leave us to our abilities and capacities, we need your prayers to succeed.” The sultan has been voicing out his concerns on the security situation and other challenges in the country.

On Thursday at the Northern Security Meeting in Kaduna, he blamed northern leaders for not doing enough to address the security challenges in the region, which brought about the formation of a security outfit code-named Shege-Ka-Fasa. He said the elders had not provided good leadership and that had brought about the formation of the security outfit, urging elders of the North to reach out to all and sundry in their attempt to find a solution to the various challenges in the region and the country. Similarly, on Friday, the Sultan in Jos, Plateau State, blamed Nigerian leaders, especially traditional and religious leaders, for their failure to lead “the citizens to the right path.”

He said at the Plateau State Forgiveness and Reconciliation Day held at Forgiveness Garden, that traditional and religious leaders had failed to preach peace and promote good societal values, noting that lack of forgiveness among Nigerians was also contributing to the predicaments of the country. At the 45th anniversary of the emir of Zazzau, Kaduna State governor, Nasir el-Rufa’i, said he was proud to be part of history, as he was a Form 4 secondary school student at Barewa College, Zaria when the emir was turbaned. He added: “I am happy to be part of history to celebrate this day. We pray for long life and good health for the emir.

We hope to be here again during the Golden Jubilee and beyond. We wish to thank the emir, on behalf of the state government, for the secret counseling and pieces of advice he has been offering to us whenever he sees us deviating. We also thank the clerics for their prayers.” On the issue of the Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital (ABUTH), Zaria, raised by the emir, the governor said he would organize a tour of the hospital to assess the problems and submit a report to the president, because of its importance not only to Kaduna State, but to the entire North.

El-Rufa’i said the Minister of Finance had been contacted on how to mobilize funds for the hospital’s repairs. He added: “I would like to assure residents of Zaria that the various projects we have executed so far are just the beginning. We will do more. We appreciate the emir for his peace efforts, we appreciate him for his prayers for us, we are appealing for more prayers and counseling.”

Without reading the post, I know it's going to be fill with crab.
Nigerians don't want true and sustainable change, all they want is patch-up, lies and manage.
We also deserve a better and good life. Without any doubt, this government has made Nigerians understand what they should look forward to and expect in a leader.
Buhari is a visionary leader with real, genuine and pure intention for a better Nigeria.
Either you wail or not what PMB is doing is what Nigeria need at the moment else it would be grounded totally.
Corrupt politicians will confess to you that this corruption fight is real but they will never admit to that instead they will want to manipulate the populace to rubbish the effort of any government that want to take the bull by the horn.
How long are we going to keep developing other countries? When a country border is closed, the sole aim and expectation is for the citizens to bring fore their creatively and sell to both local and global market but in Nigeria, the reverse is the case with very! very!! very!!! lazy people who want quick money.
China close its doors, reinvent itself and came out very strong. China phone is called palasa with a very bad ringtone but today 80% of mobile cellphone are from China.
No doubt this government security strategy and chiefs has failed Nigerians with more killings daily which should be a topic of discussion and not economy or suffering.

The Sultan must be a closet IPOB.
We must all enjoy this next level together until everybody get sense by force so we never vote the likes of Buhari again.

Good Road Transportation
Good Housing(Mostly Highrise)
Water Avaialability
Uninterrupted Power Supply
Good Drainage System
Home Internet Connection
Food Availability
World Class Airport.
Mention any good thing you think the government need to provide for her citizen.

Mr Sultan, one of your senseless idiiotic followers in osun state says the people are going through hard times, not because the government is bad but because they are lazy. His name is budaatum.

Rest assured, Mr sultan, that your statement will never stop him from being dumb. Now that you, his slave master, has declared him stupid, we shall see if he will wake up from his Dumbness or continue to wallow shamelessly in it.
