Politicians Should Stop Politicising Insecurity - Sultan Of Sokoto

The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Mohammed Sa’ad Abubakar, has advised Nigerian politicians to stop politicising the issue of insecurity in the country.

The monarch and religious leader urged the Federal Government to immediately address insecurity in the country and curb activities of criminals disturbing the nation’s peace and progress.

He gave the advice on Monday while speaking at an event organized by the Global Peace Foundation, in collaboration with Vision Africa in Abuja.

According to Abubakar, political office holders should be circumspect and consider lives to be sacred.

He said, “As leaders, we must always look at one thing, let us serve humanity first. So, we must stop politicising insecurity.

“It’s unfortunate that this is what we are seeing across the land. Parties are accusing one another of not doing enough to tackle insecurity. I think that is the major problem we have been facing in the country.

“I want to say there is hope in finding solutions to the numerous problems facing us, because I know all of us here believe and identify that we have problems.

“To know you have a problem is to have half of the solution. And the other half we are looking for, can come from this kind of gathering, if we are circumspect and talk to each other with honesty and sincerity as we discuss in efforts to bring peace and stability to our country.

“Peace is the most important aspect of our lives because without peace, you just can’t do anything. All is not well with our country, and I think this forum is very important.”
