The Sultan of Sokoto, His Eminence Sa’ad Abubakar 111, has advised Nigerians to agitate and work for only those things that will unite the country, not those things that divide us.
He gave this advice yesterday, after being conferred with the honorary Fellowship Award of Post Graduate Medical College of Nigeria (NPMCN) at the institution’s premises, in Ijanikin, Lagos.
According to him, Nigerians should pursue issues that bring us together for development rather than those issues that divides the nation.
“Let us agitate for better things that will strengthen us to better and united nation and not for those things that separate us. Let us agitate for this college to have better equipment such as simulation laboratory that will enhance the healthcare delivery of the nation”, he said.
According to him, whatever God wants to do with us as nation, is what He will do with us.
“I am happy when Prof. Ajayi the guest lecturer said, if we cannot love our neighbors, we cannot love God. What we need in the country is love and nothing but love for the nation and our neighbour”, he said.
He said Nigerians have the capacity to be great but what the country needs is excellent leaders who will work for the common interest of the common man.
Christians and Muslims, I want us to be united to fight for common course that bind us together. We must love one another for the greater development of the country “he said.
Sa’ad also urged Nigerians at all levels to close ranks and come together to fight the common course of becoming a prosperous nation ,and live together as brothers and sisters .
