The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, on Monday said that Nigeria remains an indivisible country in spite of its cultural and ethnic diversity.
He spoke during the 2019 edition of Ulefuta Festival in Akure, Ondo State. According to the Sultan who has 23 oil well in Niger-Delta as a gift given to him by past military head of states, some leaders have been using the diversity of the country to sow seeds of discord to their own benefit.
According to The Biafra Star, Kanu during his live broadcast said that the Sultan of Sokoto owns 23 Oil Wells in Nigeria.
He said that no meaningful development can be achieved in any country where insecurity and violence is the order of the day.
Abubakar urged religious leaders in the country to refrain from using religion and ethnicity as avenues to cause a breach of peace and violence.
“I insists we must focus on the management of our diversity and not desecrate it. There is no time for internal wrangling. It destroys our unity and nobody will benefit from it.
“Diversity is not the problem. It is management of our diversity that is the problem.
“Our diversity should enhance good economy and strengthen it but it has to be tapped into and we must celebrate it.
“Also, we must focus on the management of our diversity and not desecrate it. There is no time for internal wrangling. It destroys our unity and nobody will benefit from it.”
