The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, yesterday urged traditional leaders in the country to steer clear of politics.
The monarch gave the advice when he turbaned three new District Heads and two traditional title holders in his palace in Sokoto.
 
He maintained that traditional rulers should be fathers to all irrespective of any religious, ethnic or political differences. “Leadership in any form is a trust and all leaders will be accountable for their stewardship,” he said.
 
The monarch said the new traditional rulers and title holders were selected based on merit and their wealth of experience. He urged them to give priority to the welfare and comfort of their followers.
The Sultan lamented that greed, moral decadence, corruption and other vices were the bane of the contemporary Nigerian society.
He noted that the required respect for the traditional institutions in the country had also been down-graded, adding that the earlier this was restored in Nigeria, the better for the peace and unity of the nation.
 
The Sultan appealed to Nigerians to pray fervently for the sustained peace and unity. Those turbanned include the state Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Bala Abubakar III, who was turbaned as the Durunbun Sokoto, and the immediate past Director of Information in the state Ministry of Information, Alhaji Sa’idu Maccido  as Dan-Buram Sokoto, among others.
