The Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar says what Nigeria needs at this period is excellent and determined leadership.
He stated this at the inauguration of an ultramodern camp for Muslim and Christians pilgrims in Bauchi state.
Abubakar called on leaders to make every effort to make sure they fulfill the purpose for which they were elected to their variant positions.
“Leaders should always strive to do what the people want, because it is the main reason they were voted into power by the people.
“What the country needs now is excellent and purposeful leadership. Leadership has been bestowed on us by Allah. We should know that one day, we will all give account of our stewardship in the hereafter.
“It is incumbent on us as leaders to discharge our responsibilities to the best of our ability. The followers are looking up to us for effective leadership. That is what we have to do in order to make the country better.”
The revered monarch also commended the Bauchi state governor for making efforts to install unity between the two religions in the state.
“I would like to thank the governor for finding it fit to build this place and like I have heard, it is not just for Muslim pilgrims, it is for Christians too,” he said.
“This is because the two major religions undertake such trips to holy lands and anybody can use this facility, and that’s exactly how it’s supposed to be, because we are one big family.”
