The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar on Thursday commended the Northern States Governors Forum, especially those that went to incident places such as Oyo and Ondo to commiserate with northerners that were affected by recent crisis in the areas.
The Sultan also applauded efforts of the Northern Governors towards finding solution to the issues affecting the region appealing to Northerners to remain patient and further assured the governors of the traditional leaders’ support.
“They have been doing a lot, because as you all know it is always easy to destroy and it’s very very difficult to build and destruction has been going on for decades.”
He condoled all the victims of the recent various kidnappings, killings in the North and the South West part of the country.
Regarding the menace of some children begging on the street, disguised under seeking Qur’anin knowledge popularly known as “Almajiranci” the Sultan suggested for enrolling the children known as “Almajirais” into school and also admonished parents to properly take care for their wards.
“Just few days ago, we had a very important seminar in Sokoto, on this very Almajiris issues, we brought people from outside Sokoto, I was there personally, the Governor was there and we invited so many Ulama’as.
” We already came up with some possible solutions to this very big menace of our children going about begging for food and not exactly out there to look for Qur’anic education,” he added.
