The Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar III, has lamented over the lingering insecurity in the Northern part of the country, saying that bandits now go into houses to kidnap people.
Mr Abubakar, who is also the President-General of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, NSCIA, made the lamentation on Thursday during the 4th quarter 2020 meeting of the Nigeria Inter-Religious Council, NIREC, in Abuja.
The Sultan said: “How much an onion costs in Nigeria today is an insight into the current economic hardship in the country.
“We do not lack recommendations and solutions to our problems. What we lack is the sense of purpose.”
