The Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC), has been cautioned by Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar, to stop the blame game and face reality.
He equally cautioned other political parties in Nigeria and the general public to forget political affiliations, avoid blame game and work together to salvage the present economic crisis in the country.
Sultan of Sokoto and the President General of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), who was in Edo state for the annual meeting of the Islamic group, gave this warning when he paid a courtesy visit on Governor Adams Oshiomhole.
According to him, not until Nigeria politicians forget their political affiliations and come together to fix the economy, the country will continue to groan.
He said that Nigerians though are currently facing difficult time, but should draw consolation from some industrialised nations who are facing more crises in different spheres.
“Nigeria though is experiencing difficulties but we are much much better than so many other countries. It is only what you read in the papers that disturbs you, but most industrialized countries are worse than Nigeria but you hardly hear them. We have our own problems let’s put hands together irrespective of religion. Let us salvage our economy, make the country work, let people feel free to walk at 2am.
“That is the country we crave for and we must all work for that to happen. We cannot sit down and think things will work out for us, no. I heard the governor (Oshiomhole) speaking on governors who are not paying salaries. And this is one of the things increasing criminal activities. Workers are not paid and they have families and when you are hungry you will be angry.
“So we know problems in the country so as leaders let’s put hands together and see how we can resolve them. Nobody should blame anybody, let’s stop the blame game and face reality. Let us come together irrespective of party affiliation and move this country forward”.
