Sokoto Sultan and Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) President-General Sa’ad Abubakar has revealed that he is afraid of Nigeria’s future in 2023 as the signs are already there.
The monarch who spoke at the 2019 Nigerian Da’awah Coordinating Council (DCCN) General Assembly at the Sultan Palace, Sokoto, during the weekend expressed concern that Nigerians had become more divided politically before the next general elections in 2023.
Sokoto’s Sultan added that there was a very disturbing trend in the 2019 elections with religious leaders who should be neutral and openly pitching candidates’ tent.
“If Nigeria has these troubles in 2019 then, I have my fears over 2023. The signs are already on ground. Brothers no longer talk to each other.
Friends are now divided in a very terrible way because they have been insulting one another before the election. Neighbours now hate each other because they belong to different political parties.
“We that are religious leaders, have to be careful of what we tell our followers because most of them are not educated and will take whatever you say as true. I have been an observer of the election over the years and have never declared support for any candidate.
As a religious leader, I have never asked Imams or Muslims preachers to preach against anybody or in support of any as well,” he asserted.
