Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III, Sultan of Sokoto, yesterday condemned politicians who partook in the sharing of cash from the Office of National Security Adviser (NSA), terming the act as ungodly.
According to a statement by Kogunan Sokoto, Malam Danladi Bako. Bako, a former Sokoto State commissioner for Information, who was among the Sultan’s delegates to the United States Sultan, the royal father spoke with a few officials at the Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington DC.
The Sultan not only endorsed the war against corruption, but decried the conversion of funds meant for the purchase of arms to fight Boko Haram to personal use by past government official.This was done with the connivance of some unscrupulous politicians. Such funds would have enhanced the capacity of the military to fast track the curtailment of insurgency in the north east of Nigeria.It added: “The Sultan implored the international community to be patient with the Buhari administration in its agenda of improving on the economy, as well as the security situation in the country.
