The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar III, has warned Nigerians against repeating mistakes that led to a civil war in 1967.


Abubakar said that the country would not survive another civil war and urged citizens to continue to live together peacefully.

The monarch stated this while delivering his keynote address at the Traditional Rulers’ Day during the ongoing Rivers State Golden Jubilee celebration with the theme, “Traditional Institution in Nigeria and the Challenge of Re-engineering Viable Local Economies.”

“Nigeria is just above 50 years and had fought a civil war. We must understand that Nigeria cannot survive another Civil War. Therefore, Nigerians should work against repeating such mistakes that led us to that Civil War,” the Sultan said.

He also argued that the traditional institution had always been in existence and was capable of bringing out the best in Nigeria.

“The traditional institution was already here before Nigeria came into existence. When the colonial masters came, they saw a well organised traditional institution and that was why most parts of the country were ruled by them through the traditional rulers.

“The traditional institution in Nigeria has what it takes to bring the best out of our communities and our country. The politicians should not see the traditional institution as a threat, rather they should work with us,” he stressed.
