The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar lll has said that insecurity is part of God’s punishment for Nigerians.
The monarch made the statement at the 5th International Conference on “Love and Tolerance: Countering Violent Extremism for Peaceful Coexistence” in Abuja.
The Sultan also urged Nigerians to live together, be their brother’s keeper and stop creating problems for eachother.
He said: “The security challenge is our problem. The Holy Quran is a message to mankind. The Hoy Bible is a message to mankind. If we cannot listen to what the Bible and Quran have taught us and we continue in our bad ways, what do we expect?
It is part of the punishment we are receiving based on our sins. If we can stop committing sin and abide by God’s words, things will change.
I thank the UFUK Foundation for trying to unite the world to become one and love each other. Today, we are in a situation that most of us do not love each other. This is wrong, we are created in the same way and we are brothers, no matter the situation and religion.
We are appealing to everyone to live together and be our brother’s keeper and live in harmony. We should not create problems for each other,” he said
