On Wednesday in Kaduna, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar, the Sultan of Sokoto, stated that the Northern Traditional Rulers’ Council will investigate ways to ease the region’s problems and provide governors with advice based on their findings.

The Council Chairman, Abubakar, urged the traditional rulers to conduct an honest assessment of the situation and work together to find effective solutions to the issues facing the region.

He promised to relay the meeting’s conclusions to all of the governors in the region and said that its purpose was to address people’s problems for a better future. The gathering included chairmen of 19 northern state traditional rulers’ organizations and the Federal Capital Territory.

He reminded them of their role as fathers in addressing the region’s problems and stressed the need of being forthright about all of them, such as the fact that the average person doesn’t have enough money to eat every day since there aren’t enough stable jobs.

Things are not right in Nigeria and the North, says Abubakar, who also warns that it’s dangerous to have a big youth unemployment rate without adequate prospects and that poverty is on the rise.

He urged Nigeria’s political leaders to act swiftly to fix the problem and restore calm to the country.

The Sultan said that the conference needed to get to the bottom of things, and he added that the current administration shouldn’t get all the blame.

While assuring the millions of people who put their faith in the traditional institution that their leaders would carry out their responsibilities, he voiced his displeasure that their earlier suggestions had gone unheeded.

The Northern region has gone from being a tranquil area and the nation’s bread basket to a hub of terrorism, banditry, kidnapping, and other problems, according to Governor Uba Sani of Kaduna State and his deputy, Dr. Hadiza Balarabe.

He said that the governors of the northern states needed to work together immediately to revitalize their economies, end poverty and insecurity, and improve access to healthcare, education, and agricultural products.

Abdul Enechi, the Director of the DSS in Kaduna State, spoke on behalf of the Director General of the Department of State Services, Yusuf-Magaji Bichi, who stressed the need of cooperation among all institutions in the fight against security threats.
