Lets Forget Our Differences In Religion And Come Before God In Brotherhood – Sultan Of Sokoto




Christians Not Persecuted In Nigeria - Sultan Tells CAN

The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III  has urged Nigerians to forget their religious differences and go before God in brotherhood.

According to him, Nigerians should forget their religious differences and rededicate themselves afresh to the great task that lies ahead of them.

Naija News gathered that the sultan gave this charge during his remarks at the closing ceremony of the national Qur’anic Recitation competition in Gusau, Zamfara State.

The monarch said diversity may be great but the things that unite great people are stronger than the things that divide them.

He submitted that leaders should truly believe in nation-building and not looters who come to power to be served and to be worshipped.

The sultan observed that the people of many different races, tribes and religions, who are knit together by common history, common interests and common ideals are still recognized in the northern region.

The monarch maintained that “On occasions like this, I always remind people about our firmly rooted policy on religious tolerance.

“Families of all creeds and colours can rely on these assurances. We have no intention of favouring one religion at the expense of another. Subject to the overriding need to preserve law and order.

“It is our determination that everyone should have absolute liberty to practise his beliefs.
“It is also befitting on this momentous day, on behalf of my ministers and myself, to send a special word of gratitude to all Christian missions.

“Let me conclude this with a personal message. I extend my greetings to all our people who are Christians on this great feast day.

“We should forget our differences in our religion and come together for a common brotherhood before God, by dedicating ourselves afresh to the great tasks which lie before us.
