He said the Almighty Allah had been kind to Sultan Abubakar, attaining the age of 67 in good health, sound mind, fulfillment and a highly successful reign since his enthronement as the sultan of Sokoto in 2006.

The governor described the prominent traditional ruler as a peacemaker, bridge builder, leading advocate of unity of Nigeria and a crusader of religious tolerance and a great defender of the faithful.

According to him, the Sultan has always used his eminent position to play stabilising roles in the polity at critical periods, noting that Nigeria has always benefited from the monarch’s wisdom.

He also prayed to Allah to grant the Sultan more years of fruitful and purposeful service to the Sokoto Caliphate, Nigeria and humanity as a whole. (NAN)
