Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar has asked security agencies and political leaders not to allow extremists take over any section of the country.
In his speech at the 2nd National Education Summit of the Nigerian Army holding in Sokoto, the monarch noted that those who practice the two major religion in the country, turn it upside down to suit them because they have not been properly guided on what should be the teachings.
Abubakar said; “We should and we must not allow extremists to take over any section of the country and we must do so by challenging them educationally and security wise.
“The monarch said the summit was coming at the right time because of so many challenges in the country.”
The Sultan of Sokoto also averred that part of the problem experienced in the country comes from lack of implementation of resolutions reached at similar summits.
Appealing for lessons to be taught in local languages to students learn better and faster, he also stressed the need for Nigerians to deemphasise paper qualification by making education very functional and productive.
The monarch added;
“The more we come together to discuss our problems, the more solutions will come and the more we implement a those solutions, the better for the country.”
