Nigeria is stronger together – Sultan


The Sultan of Sokoto, His Eminence Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III, has called on Nigerians to see their diversity as their strength and to work together for the peace and harmony of the country.

The Sultan made the call on Thursday while inaugurating the 10.2km Glory Drive dual carriageway project in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.

He said that Nigeria is stronger together as one indivisible entity, and that our diversity is our strength. He urged Nigerians to support their leaders and to pray for them, but also to correct them when they are doing wrong.

The Sultan also said that leaders must consult before making decisions, and that they should not force themselves on the people. He said that only God gives power, and that he can also take it away without notice.

Somebody will wonder why bringing somebody far away from Sokoto to Bayelsa to Commission a road project, there are too many things there to talk about if we have to spend a whole day to talk about it, one; it is not just a road but very iconic and historical road, and it takes long time and a lot of money to build.

“There is a need for us to be together as one big family, why bring somebody far away from Sokoto to Bayelsa, because this is one Nigeria, we are stronger together, our diversity is our strength, we are all here today as one family, different tribes, but we are all together and when a leader is doing right thing, you will see it through the faces and action of the followers, and I believe the governor is doing the right thing,” he said

Earlier, while welcoming the Sultan, Bayelsa State Governor Douye Diri said that his administration is not playing politics with development of the state, and that is why the Glory Drive project was completed for use of the people.

Diri said that the road was conceived when former President Goodluck Jonathan administration governed the State, but was abandoned until he took over as Governor in 2020.
