Nothing, according to the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar, can prevent President-elect Bola Tinubu’s inauguration on May 29.
Abubakar made the announcement while urging Nigerians to pray for Tinubu’s administration’s success.
On Wednesday in Abuja, he spoke at a roundtable discussion with traditional and religious leadership arranged by the World Bank.
He said: “There must be change because, in the next few days or weeks, there will be a new government; what can we contribute to that government to stabilize?”
“Whether anybody likes it, it must take place, a new government is coming on May 29, so what can we do besides prayers, because we believe in the Almighty, we believe in a God that gives and takes.”
“After that so what? What do we do to help the government stabilize and move the country forward?”
He charged Nigerians to be united and work towards ensuring equity and justice.
