Sultan of Sokoto declares September 1 as Sallah day

Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III

The Sultan of Sokoto Sa’ad Abubakar III has spoken out against the ultimatum given by a coalition of Northern youths for Igbos in the region to leave before October 1.

The sultan asked that he be attacked first if there is any plan for such, as he is against the ultimatum, Vanguard reports. He said:

If anybody or group of persons plans negative attack on Igbo, he or they should attack me first because I am against the so-called ultimatum issued by the Arewa youths that Igbo should leave the north.

He added that Igbos should not agitate to leave Nigeria, but should instead ensure proper integration.

He blamed politicians for the problems faced by Nigerians, saying they promise the people heaven during campaigns, but do nothing when they are elected. He said:

They come to you during campaigns, promise you heaven in your house, air conditions on all roads and milk entering your mouth hourly without any effort from you.

As soon as they win and go to Abuja, they start planning comfort for themselves while those from the rural areas move to state capitals, abandoning those who voted them.

Igbo cannot leave peacefully in isolation from Nigeria. They should work towards ensuring proper integration, reconstruction as promised by Gen. Yakubu Gowon.

They may agitate for creation of more states in the South-East to meet up with other geopolitical zones of the country

    No one should be attacked. No one should be allowed to think they have a right to even imagine such threat talk less of uttering it. And no one should be treated with kid gloves having made such seditious statements as these moronic bunch made.
