The Nigeria former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has hailed the Sultan of Sokoto, Saad Abubakar III, for his remark on Northern Nigeria being unsafe.
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chieftain stressed that the Sultan’s remark was a wake-up call that leaders should ensure peace and not play politics with the lives of Nigerians.
Recall Abubakar had earlier said that North is the worst place in Nigeri as a result of insurgency.
The monarch lamented that bandits openly go about their activities in the North, despite the presence of security operatives.
The PDP chieftain in a thread of tweets on Saturday, he wrote: “The north is the worst place to be in this country because bandits go about in the villages with their AK47 and nobody talks to them. They stop at the markets and buy things and even collect change with their weapons – Sultan of Sokoto.
“Deeply courageous of His Eminence the Sultan of Sokoto to speak truth in this way.
“This is a matter of life and death and we must not play politics with it. May God help our leaders from all over our country and across party lines to restore law and order and establish peace in Nigeria.
