Nigerians are free to do Business in any part of the Country- Sultan of Sokoto

The Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar has called on Nigerians to trash tribal differences which have been hampering the country’s progress for a long time.

The paramount ruler of the Sokoto Caliphate said this at Suleja in Niger State on Monday. The monarch was in Niger for a retreat organised for Northern lawmakers in the House of Representatives.
“Today, tribal politicians are bent on tearing the fabric of our nation apart under different guises. As patriotic and peace-loving Nigerians, we should not fold our arms and watch them destroy our unity,” he said.

“All Nigerians must enjoy equal freedom and equal rights to live peacefully and pursue their legitimate businesses in any part of the country they so choose, be it in the market or in the forest.”

“We must reject all ill-conceived schemes that are divisive — schemes that are setting Nigerians against fellow Nigerians. We must abhor laws that are capable of causing inter-tribal or inter-regional disharmony. All men are created equal and the unity of Nigeria is sacrosanct.”
