The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar, has urged Nigerians to pray for the incoming administration to succeed in steering the affairs of the country.
The Sultan who was speaking during a roundtable engagement with traditional and religious rulers on Wednesday in Abuja said everyone should know that a new administration would take over on May 29 “whether they like it or not.”
The event organized by the World Bank was to fashion a way out to increase human capital development in the country especially, the girl child education.
The Sultan, who was urging attendees not to abandon the advocacy of ending child marriage and other impediments to the growth of the girl when they get to their community 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 29 May, so what can we do besides prayers because we believe in the Almighty, we believe in God that gives and takes.
