SULTAN OF SOKOTO CONDEMNED FOR ASKING ATIKU TO CONCEDE DEFEAT.
The recent call by Sultan of Sokoto ( Sa’adu Abubakar) to the Presidential Candidate of Peoples Democratic Party – PDP Nigeria Alh. Atiku Abubakar asking him to concede defeat in the interest of peace even though he (Sultan) acknowledged that Atiku has brazing facts and evidence of his mandate stolen by Muhammadu Buhari of All Progressive Congress – APC is totally and absolutely condemned. Sultan of Sokoto’s further pronouncement that Atiku will win in court but there will be #Massacre in Nigeria, this is an empty threat of violence against Nigerians. The Sultan is hereby condemned and called upon to desist from such very dangerous, biased, ethnically inclined utterances. Does it mean that justice cannot be called justice anymore in Nigeria? Is he implying that people should keep quite while their giving mandate by the people is forcefully taking away from them? This is an empty threat by the Sultan of Sokoto and as such hereby call on Alh. Atiku Abubakar to NEVER EVER CONCEDE DEFEAT TO MOHAMMADU BUHARI. He should go to court and reclaim his mandate and victory as there’s no massacre coming to Nigeria as a result of him doing so.
The Sultan of Sokoto and his cohorts should as a matter of clarity know that long gone is the era when Nigerians tremble at the threat of violence. Does he think that this present age is still same as the era of 1967 when people have not gotten so wise and full of great intellect and technology? This is not a massacre or war between Fulani and southerners but it is a war between the Fulani and the Just and Concerned Peoples of the World. Even in Nigeria too, not only the south but the middle belt (North Central Zone of Nigeria) and many Northern states are involved. How can Buhari with glaring threat and intimidation, stole Atiku’s mandate and victory and Sultan is playing the devil’s advocate asking him (Atiku) to accept such unimaginable robbery and tyranny? It will never stand the test of time.
Alh. Atiku Abubakar is encouraged to remain resolute and pursue his giving mandate in court as victory is assured.
