Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar has asked security agencies and political leaders not to allow extremists to take over any section of the country.
In his speech at the 2nd National Education Summit of the Nigerian Army held in Sokoto, the monarch
noted that those who practice the two major religions in the country, turn it upside down to suit them
because they have not been properly guided on what should be the teachings.
“We should and we must not allow extremists to take over any section of the country and we must do so
by challenging them educationally and security-wise.
“The monarch said the summit was coming at the right time because of so many challenges in the country.”
The Sultan of Sokoto also averred that part of the problem experienced in the country comes from
lack of implementation of resolutions reached at similar summits.
Appealing for lessons to be taught in local languages to students learn better and faster, he also stressed the need f
or Nigerians to deemphasize paper qualification by making education very functional and productive.
The monarch added;
“The more we come together to discuss our problems, the more solutions will come and the more we implement
a those solutions, the better for the country.”
