The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III has blamed the current recession in Nigeria on the laziness of citizens and leaders in the country.

He made the comments on Sunday, April 16, during the 22nd National Ummah Convention in Sokoto, Daily Trust reports.

“Much is needed from the government and the general public to tackle hunger, as our laziness could not aid our progress,” the Sultan said.

“Yes, there is hunger in the country, but we have been so much lazy to tackle the issue, as we always depend on government and other wealthy individuals to assist us.

“Moreover, no one could solve our own problems, but we should improve more on agriculture, in order to tackle them and yield a better society,” he added.

The convention, which was themed “Agriculture: Panacea to Nigeria’s Economic Recession,” was also attended by the Commissioner for Religious Affairs, Alhaji Mani Maishinku who represented Governor Aminu Tambuwal.
