Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Abubakar Sa’ad has warned against the politicisation of matters bordering on the security of life and property in the country.
He expressed that politicisation of insecurity will not do the nation any good but aggravate the already fragile situation in the country.
He gave the warning at a one-day ‘Retreat on Inclusive Security’ organised by the Global Peace Foundation, in collaboration with Vision Africa in Abuja.
The Sultan, who lamented the recent spate of insecurity in the country, said that lives should be considered sacred and that the leaders should rather be circumspect than carrying on as though all is well.
“It’s unfortunate that this is what we are seeing across the land. Parties are accusing one another of not doing enough to tackle insecurity. I think that is the major problem we have been facing in the country,” the Sultan said.
