Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III yesterday maintained that the current insecurity situation in the country will soon be over.
He made the remark while speaking with State House correspondence after presenting the 2013 Hajj report to President Goodluck Jonathan.
Besides submitting the report, he said that he also had discussions with the President on security issues in the country.
He said: “We also took time to rub minds on some few security issues affecting Nigeria. We heard from Mr. President and he also heard from us. Insha Allah, Nigeria will be better for it very soon.”
On the Hajj report, he said: “At the end of each Hajj operation of each particular year, the Amir Hajj delegation submits its report to the President highlighting what really transpired, what are the
challenges and what we feel Mr. President should do to make Hajj operations in Nigeria better.”
“So this morning, we submitted our report to the President and highlighted areas of achievements and also some few areas which we feel the government should still come in.”
“We also commended Mr. President for the support he has been giving to Hajj operations in Nigeria and I think you are all aware of the significant leap we have in terms of preparing and conducting Hajj
operations in Nigeria. Much better than what it used to be.”
“The President assured us of the government’s continued total support for Hajj operations in this country.” He said
