Traditional leaders’ role, critical for peace – Sultan

From TUNDE OMOLEHIN, Sokoto

The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar III, has said the role of the traditional institution in fostering peace and harmony in the society can not be over-emphasised in the face of security challenges facing the country.

Alhaji Abubakar stated this in Sokoto  during a sensitisation seminar on Security Awareness for the District Heads of the Sokoto Sultanate council. The workshop was organised by the state chapter of Alumni Association of the National Institute (AANN).

He explained that the district heads were charged with the vital responsibility of sustaining peace and harmony among subjects within their domains, adding that such roles have continued to enhance the nation’s security.

“The district heads have important roles to play in sustaining peace within their domains. If all is well, it is the efforts of this class of traditional institution and if not, they should be held responsible. I want you to reverse back to the ancient days when district heads kept accurate statistics on the population as well as migration within their district,” the Sultan said. In his keynote address, the National President of the AANN, Major-General Lawrence Onoja (retd.), called on President Goodluck Jonathan to draw on the rich findings of NIPPS, Kuru, Jos, with a view to putting an end to the current crisis of governance in the country, especially the issue of insecurity. “As many as 1,523 researched policy papers and recommendations with implementation strategies have come out of the institute on all issues of nation building including security,” he said. In the same vein, the association’s National Publicity Secretary, Dr. Bello Alkali, urged the Federal Government to seek for an end to the lingering issues raised by members of the Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU), which has resulted to prolonged industrial action.
