The Sultan, who doubles as the leader of the Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), spoke in Sokoto after the Eid prayer on Thursday.
He said: “We are calling on President Muhammadu Buhari, and all the state governors to, as a matter of urgency, bring to an end insecurity across the country.
“As our leaders, you should continue to remain resolute and more committed to your various responsibilities of protecting the society.
“Therefore, you should enhance your commitment toward the restoration of the peaceful nature our country was long known for.”
The Sultan also urged Muslims to continue to pray for their leaders to be able to shoulder the numerous responsibilities placed on them.
The monarch also urged Muslims to continue to sustain the spirit of charity, generousity, hospitality and brotherhood that Eid-El-Filtr symbolises.
“Today is a great day for all of us to celebrate, show love, support and relate with one another, as such we should sustain the commitment for our best desire.”
