Why We Should Not Curse Our Leaders – Sultan Of Sokoto

Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar

The Sultan of Sokoto and President General of the Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III has expressed disgust on those who are in the habit of abusing and cursing leaders because of the fact that, to them, such leaders are not performing to their satisfaction.

He said that cursing leaders amount to cursing the country and the system, saying that such people only succeed in complicating matters for the country.

The Sultan, who received in audience today, February 9, President Muhammadu Buhari, who led the Presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu on a courtesy visit ahead of the campaign rally in Sokoto today, said that the more one prays for the leaders, the more God would help such leaders to do better for the good of all.

“If you pray for leaders, God may answer you and intervene to make them perform better for the benefit of all. But if you curse them, God may also answer you by intervening to make them weak and confused, also for the hardship on the people. We all suffer for the consequences of what we say about our leaders.”

Sultan Sa’ad said that he had always been praying to God to help President Buhari to do better for the country, adding that even after he leaves office, he would continue to pray for him.

The Sultan said that as traditional ruler, he cannot openly take side in the political contest due to take place shortly, saying that the only thing he would continue to do is to pray to God to give the country the best president that would elevate Nigeria to greater height and bring about peace, security and good standard of living for the people of the country.

“Our concern is peace, security, stability and development of the country in all ramifications. That is why we don’t openly support any candidate, believing that God has already known who the leader we are praying to have, is.”

President Buhari told the Sultan that he chose to join the campaign trane of Asiwaju Tinubu for three reasons: that he and Tinubu have been together as friends in the last 20 years and the fact that he performed wonderfully well when he was Governor of Lagos State.

“The third one is that Tinubu won my party’s presidential primary in a free, fair and credible process and therefore, he is the legitimate candidate of my party.”

He appealed to Sultan to support Tinubu, who Sultan called; “The Jagaban of the World.”

Tinubu also appealed to Sultan Sa’ad to support and endorse his candidature as a mark of respect for President Buhari who led him to the palace.

He said that if he is voted as President, he and his team will turn Nigeria around in all aspects of life, adding that he had never known to disappoint in his promises.
