Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar, has warned the Federal Government to note that its monetary policy is causing untold hardship to Nigerians.
Abubakar who spoke on Monday in Abuja at the National Conference on Livestock Reforms and Mitigation of Associated Conflicts in Nigeria organised by the Kano State Government, warned the political class to desist from politicising the issues that have a direct bearing on the lives of the people.
The people are hungry – is there money? People are angry and hungry. Let’s see how we can douse the tension.
He noted that Nigerian people are hungry and angry, adding that the government needs to work to douse the tension in the country.
The Sultan said, “Let’s keep politics aside. The issues of development, especially for the common man, (should be prioritized). These people that God Almighty gave leadership over, one day, God forbid, will rise (against us).
“After all these English by professors, how do we get these developments down to the common man who is a farmer, the common Fulani man who doesn’t know anything about development? He only cares about cattle.
“The people are hungry – is there money? People are angry and hungry. Let’s see how we can douse the tension.”
