The Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III, has submitted that Nigeria is in a bad place.
The monarch stated this on Thursday, while speaking during the opening ceremony of a summit in Gombe State, organised by the Da’awah Coordination Council of Nigeria (DCCN).
He advised Governors to ensure there is adequate supply of food, as food shortage looms.
According to the Sultan, scarcity of food will increase insecurity in Nigeria.
“I will like to call on governors to ensure they make adequate supply of food in store for the common man in anticipation of possible shortage of food in the world. And at the right time, subsidise it so that the common man can afford.
“This is because a hungry man is an angry man. Without food, there will be no peace and without peace, there will be no security,” he said.
The traditional ruler, commenting on the security situation in the country, said: “Let us not deceive ourselves that things are right. Things are not right, we know it and we have seen so much in our lives.
“It doesn’t take anybody a lot to know that Nigeria is in a very bad situation and it is a fact.”
