Why Sokoto State Government Should Abort Alleged Plan To Remove Sultan – MUSWEN



The Muslim Ummah of South West Nigeria (MUSWEN), the official umbrella body for all Muslims in the South West of Nigeria, has condemned the alleged plot to depose as Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar, the President-General of Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs and the National Leader of all Muslims in Nigeria.

Alhaji Rasaki Oladejo, the President of MUSWEN in a statement on Monday said the body believed that the information making the rounds about the Sultan is in the realm of rumour-mongering.

For the records, be it known that, we Yoruba Muslims hold Sultan Abubakar in the highest esteem. He has been a bridge-builder, successfully unifying the 120 million Nigerian Muslims from different cultural backgrounds

Beyond unifying Muslims in Nigeria,, Sultan Abubakar also enjoys the friendship and respect of Christians, establishing unprecedented rapport with the leadership of Christian Association of Nigeria.

Since his ascension to the throne as Sultan of Sokoto and President-General of Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, the nation has recorded over 90% reduction in inter-religious conflicts.
For these reasons and others, Sultan Abubakar has earned the love of all as a proponent and actualizer of harmonious and peaceful coexistence among Nigerians of all tribes and faiths.

If there are differences between Sokoto State Government and the office of The Sultan, such differences should be amicably resolved.

We still believe the alleged plot is a mere rumour. If it is true however, we hereby express unequivocally our unflinching reverence and absolute support for our leader, The President-General of Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs,

Yoruba Muslims absolutely queue and stand solidly behind our revered leader, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, Sultan of Sokoto and President-General Nigerian Suoreme Council for Islamic Affairs.
