The Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar II, has said that the injustice in appointments and allocation of resources in the country, orchestrated by leaders in the All Progressives Congress, APC, were responsible for the crisis and disunity in the country.
The Monarch, revealed this at a Collaborative Interfaith Peace and Security Capacity Building Workshop, organised by the Nigerian Army Resource Centre, NARC, in collaboration with Inter-Religious Peace Initiative, in Abuja.
Represented by the Executive Secretary of Abuja National Mosque, Alhaji Ibrahim Jega, Abubakar said an all-inclusive governance remains the panacea in addressing the myriads of problems confronting the country.
He urged leaders at all levels in ”the APC, to be equitable, fair, and just, to every member of the society, in the distribution of amenities and resources, irrespective of the political, religious and tribal inclinations of members of the society to avoid crisis ahead of 2019.”

According to the Monarch: “When it comes to issue the f dispensation of justice and equitable distribution of resources, that should be done without fear or favour, affection or ill will. 

You are not there yourself as a leader, and because you have some encounters with a group of people, either a person or a group of persons in a particular area, you should not hold on to it, so as not to extend justice to them.

“Allah says, do not allow your hatred of a particular group of people to make you decide not to extend justice to them. Whatever happens, you must extend the spirit of justice to them all, without fear or favour, affection or ill-will.

“This issue of justice goes down to whatever decision you are going to take, whether it is against you or against your parents or against your own children or against your other relations; let alone saying you will not extend justice, because you know somebody, or because he is from your town. Justice must be based on fair and equitable distribution of assets to all.”
