Northern Leaders Have Failed, Sultan Of Sokoto Opens Up

The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, has said that Northern leaders have collectively failed even as he quarreled with the proposed Northern security imitative, known as Operation ‘Shege Ka Fasa’ by the Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) in Kaduna.
Sultan Sa’ad Abubakar, who spoke today, February 7 during the inauguration of the Northern Security Monitoring Committee in Kaduna State, stressed that the proposed Shege Ka Fasa security network by the youths is a clear manifestation of the failure of the leaders in the Northern region.
“It clearly shows that our leaders and political elites in the region have failed to provide good leadership to the people.”
The senior traditional ruler insisted that Northern Leaders are responsible for the establishment of the security outfit which he describes as illegal.
“How can you allow these youths to be in the forefront? It is your responsibility to provide the right leadership to the youths. When I watched the unveiling on the television, I shook my head. This is clearly unacceptable, the upsurge of youth restiveness in the region.”
The Sultan stressed the urgent need for northern leaders and elders to rise up to their responsibilities and provide the right leadership for their people.
The Sultan also expressed concern over the increase in the number of orphans in the North.
According to him, they “would turn out to be worse than Boko Haram,” if the situation is not tackled.
The Sultan claimed that the number of orphans in the region stands at over 50,000 and called on state governors to do more with regards to insecurity.
