The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar on Monday blamed the elite for most of the challenges facing the country.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Abubakar said this when members of the Presidential Advisory Committee on the proposed National Dialogue paid him a courtesy visit in Sokoto.

“The elite are the main problems of Nigeria and most of the woes of the nation as they are now, were brought about by them.

“The elite are the problems and not the teeming masses of the country who are toiling daily, to put food on their tables.

“Most of the leaders have gone astray and they forgot the Day of Judgement. On that day we will account for our deeds and leadership before God,” Abubakar said.

The Sultan, who said he welcomed the idea of the proposed national conference, urged that all the thorny issues should be squarely addressed.

“Blames should be apportioned where they are supposed to be apportioned. We should also remember that life is a passing phase,” the Sultan, said.

Abubakar advised leaders to practice the teachings of their religion.

“If we had done that, as Christians and Muslims, and as leaders and followers, this proposed conference would not have been a necessity,” the monarch said.

He commended the committee for going round the country to collate the views and aspirations of Nigerians.

The Chairman of the committee, Sen. Femi Okorounmu had earlier told the Sultan that the visit was to pay their respect to him as a committed leader.

“The visit to Sokoto is part of the committee’s efforts to meet with all the stakeholders, in line with its mandate.

“We are also going round Nigeria to collate the views and aspirations of Nigerians, on the conference,” he said.
