BREAKING: Sultan of Sokoto Finally Breaks Silence Over Economic Hardship, Reveals What Nigerians Should Do

Published

on

The Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar IlI, has asked Nigerians to repent and return to God in prayers to get out of the prevailing economic hardship.

According to the Vanguard, the Sultan stated this on Sunday at the grand opening of a Jum’ah Mosque in Guzape, Abuja, built by the Jama’atu Izalatil Bidi’a Wa’kamatis Sunnah (JIBWIS).

Sa’ad, who was represented by a former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Yayale Ahmed, said the present economic hardship was a result of Nigerians’ deviation from the path of God.

He said: “If anyone departs from the worship of God, definitely God will not look on his side, this is evident in many places in the Holy Qur’an. We will continue to give genuine advice to the government.

“Everyone knows the situation in Nigeria right now but the solution is to go back to seek divine intervention and prayers. However, we should not supplicate for eye service but for genuine supplication, because the Lord has said that after hardship, there is relief.”

Since the removal of subsidy on petrol by President Bola Tinubu on May 29, 2023, there has been a steady increase in the prices of basic items and staples.

Nigeria’s inflation rate rose to 28.9 percent in December 2023 — up from 28.20 percent in the previous month.

Earlier on Monday and Tuesday, angry youths and women took to the streets of Minna, the Niger State capital, and Kano to protest what they described as the rising cost of living in the country

Similar protests also erupted in Ondo State in the Southwestern part of the country.

In Niger, a group of women reportedly blocked the ever-busy Minna-Bida Road at the famous Kpakungu Roundabout and called on the Tinubu administration to address the challenge of ‘hunger in the land.

They urged the federal and state governments to do something urgently to tackle the hardship across the country before it gets out of hand.

The market women and men who also protested lamented the ever-increasing prices of essential commodities and how it has affected the patronage of their businesses.
