The Sultan who spoke at the Nupe Day Celebration in Minna, the Niger State capital, yesterday, described Nigerians as good, hospitable and God-fearing people who would not deliberately set out to destroy the country, just as he stressed the importance of commitment in finding solutions to the current security challenges.
Sultan Abubakar predicted doom for those who are trying to create a problem for the country and destroy it because Nigeria would continue to exist as one indivisible people who have the fear of God.
He said, “What we need is commitment in our leadership at all levels. If we don’t see ourselves as one, we will continue to have those problems; we must have solution to these problems.”
He further urged leaders to always lead well and not trample on the rights of the common man, saying that “nobody lives forever; today you live as a leader tomorrow, you may be in the grave leading only yourself”.
