Musa Na Allah Sokoto

As part of preparations for the commencement of the year 2023 annual Ramadan, the Sultan of Sokoto and President General of Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, Alhaji (Dr) Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III has urged Muslims and Nigerians not to allow political differences and outcomes of the general elections to affect the bond of brotherhood that exist between them.

The religious leader further said anyone not satisfied with the outcomes, should refer to the court as prescribed by the constitution.

“No one should maltreat anyone or cause destructions that will affect our relationships, especially against those perceived as political opponents”


The Sultan said Islam was built on five pillars and that peace, unity, and brotherhood among Muslims were basic and fundamental ingredients to strengthen the religion.

The supreme Islamic leader made the call on Tuesday at the 2023 Sokoto Ramadan Symposium held in Sokoto.

The theme of this year’s symposium jointly organized by the Sultanate council, Jama’atul Nassaral Islam, Islamic Education Trust, and Nigerian Union of Journalists is tagged: “Ramadan the Month of Blessing”

The revered monarch stated that Elections have come and gone and winners have emerged as destined by God, so let every Muslim reconcile in the spirit of brotherhood, love, peace, and unity.

“We should not break relationships because of politics. Fasting is approaching, let all mend fences and be on track for the holy month”, he stressed.

He debunked that there were no challenges associated with moon sightings except for a lack of proper understanding and deliberate self-centeredness driving the interest of some people.

“We that are in the position of religious authorities will not betray our conscience by telling liars to fellow Muslims but will always do the right thing and ensure same was communicated to all Muslims.”

Abubakar who also noted that there was no monopoly of knowledge added “also, knowledge has no bounds”, and pointed to the religious leader.

He explained that education was an important aspect that drives Islam hence, its unity and spread must reflect the ideals” we should continue to strengthen our commitment in driving the core objects of propagating the religion in the light of peace, unity, and brotherhood.”

The Sultan commended traditional rulers and scholars in the state for their roles towards peace and unity of diverse ethnic Nigerians in the state.

“I call on you, to sustain the tempo and continue to preach peace, saying that Nigeria needs peace, unity, and development for prosperity,” he stressed.
