The Sultan of Sokoto Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III said the economic recession Nigeria is currently going through is ordained by God.

 “The only solution to this is for us to show piety and repent. It is ordained by God,” the Sultan said.

Items worth N9 million were shared out to 270 widows, orphans and other indigent persons as part of activities marking the monarch’s 10th coronation anniversary.



The Sultan urged Muslims and Christians to live their lives according to the laws of their holy scriptures. He called on the government to take measures that will cushion the suffering of Nigerians.

 Showering praises on the monarch, Governor Aminu WaziriTambuwal of Sokoto state said he was an “epitome of peace, unity and a bridge builder in Nigeria and beyond”. The Emir of Kano Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II also described the Sultan as a father to all Nigerians, both Muslims and non-Muslims.
