Economic adversity: The Sultan cautions that preventing people from rebelling may prove challenging

Date:

The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Saโ€™ad Abubakar III, has voiced deep concern about the escalating levels of suffering, insecurity, and impoverishment in Nigeria.

He expressed apprehension that soon it might become challenging to prevent the populace from rebelling.

Addressing participants at the 6th executive Northern Traditional Rulersโ€™ Council meeting in Arewa House, Kaduna, the Sultan acknowledged the efforts of traditional rulers and religious leaders in pacifying the public, particularly the unemployed youth, to avert potential uprisings against the current political leadership.

However, he emphasized that the situation has reached a critical point where traditional leaders alone may no longer be able to quell the growing discontent.

The Sultan urged continued efforts to reassure the public amidst their agitation, emphasizing the need for tangible solutions to the socio-economic challenges.

He highlighted the urgency of addressing issues like insecurity and poverty, stressing that merely relying on prayers without practical measures won’t suffice.

Additionally, he pointed out that the root causes of these challenges transcend the current government, urging a collective dialogue to identify and address the underlying problems.
