Sultan wants joint action against bombings


THE Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III has called on Nigerians to come together in the fight against terrorism and other violent crimes in the country.
Speaking during a courtesy visit on Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State, the Sultan said terrorism, robbery, kidnapping and other criminal activities are not restricted to a particular religion or region of the country.
The Sultan who congratulated Governor Oshiomhole on his re-election said “the people of Edo State brought you back to continue your good works. The challenge is now for you to continue with the good works. When I came I saw so many changes. I think the people of Edo State did the right thing to allow you to continue to steer the ship of state so that you could continue the good work you are doing”, he added.
On the violent crimes which pervaded parts of the country in recent times, the Sultan said: “some years back, we watched with amazement when we see suicide bombers and car bombers, we thought we could not have such things in our country. But we have them now. It is not a particular religion or ethnic that specializes in such terrorist or criminal activities like kidnapping or armed robbery, but I believe that we must all come together to tackle these issues the best way possible for our country”.
He stressed that the “challenges that come our way can ginger us to strengthen our resolve to meet them headon, defeat them collectively in unity and forge a national cohesion.”
Responding, Governor Oshiomhole said the honour on the Sultan by the Igbinedion University, Okada was well-deserved.
According to him, “I appreciate the leadership which your Eminence has continued to provide by way of building bridges across the length and breadth of the country and amplifying to all of us what unites us as a people and those values of unity, hardwork, tolerance and brotherhood. A lot of Nigerians admire you a lot and you have a lot of fanatical admirers.
“At this point in time Nigerians need leaders like your eminence on the side of truth, peace and unity to help build the nation”, he added.
