The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III, has said politics and national development are too important to be left to politicians alone.

The monarch said this at the 19th Daily Trust Dialogue themed ” 2023: The Politics, Economy and Insecurity.”

The Sultan said all well-meaning Nigerians must come to gather and find solutions to their numerous problems, as nobody has all the answers to the world’s problems.

According to His Eminence, "Let’s close ranks and come together to see what we can do to move this country forward in peace and prosperity.

“I am one of those who so much believe in dialogue and I believe there cannot be too many dialogue sessions not only in this country but across world because people see us everywhere talking to one another. That is the best way of resolving issues."

The monarch added that when they speak of such issues, leaders should understand that they are not challenging them but rather reminding them of what the masses want from them.

“Leadership is a trust from God the Almighty and they must account for it when they meet Him. And that is how bring people’s problem to those in power. And when we do that we are happy that we told them the truth.”
