President Muhammadu Buhari has felicitated with the Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammadu Sa'ad Abubakar, on his 60th anniversary.

This is contained in a statement issued in Abuja on Tuesday by the president’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Fedmi Adesina.

According to the statement, Buhari joins the people and government of Sokoto State, the Muslim community and family members of the Sultan in celebrating the unique anniversary.

The President affirmed that the Sultan had demonstrated uncommon leadership style, patriotism and wisdom in his consistent advocacy for security, peace and unity of Nigeria.

President Buhari believes that the wise counsels and support of the royal father on issues of good governance, girl-child education, infant and child mortality, and agriculture has greatly enriched his administration’s efforts to improve the livelihood of Nigerians.

The President prayed that the almighty Allah will grant the Sultan good health and long life to continue in the service of humanity.

The Sultan is currently the head of Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI) and President-General of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA).
