Stop blaming Fulani herdsmen – Monarch says

The monarch said Nigerians are peaceful people who love each other, adding that the elite are to blame for the problems in the country.

The Sultan of Sokoto- Muhammad Sa'ad Abubakar III. 

The Sultan called on people not to analyse matters based on religion or ethnicity.

He also said Muslims have been marginalised in Nigeria for long, but they have refused to complain.

The Sultan said “Fulani men are only after their cattle not after any government or its policies and programmes. How can they carry weapons, to go and do what with it ?,” he queried.

“When there is a vacant position and a Hausa man is appointed, we called it ‘northernisation and when a Muslim leader visit an Islamic country we say he is trying to islamise Nigeria.

“In fact, there are many people from other religion and tribes occupying other offices and we witness many christian leaders who have visited Christian countries but nobody said they were planning to Christianise the country.”
