The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar, has warned the opposition that the inauguration of President-elect Bola Tinubu will take place on May 29 regardless of their grievances.
The monarch issued the warning during a roundtable discussion with traditional and religious rulers in Abuja on Wednesday.
He said; Everyone should know that a new administration would take over on May 29 “whether they like it or not.
He then urged citizens to pray for the incoming administration’s success in steering the country’s affairs.
The World Bank organized the event to devise a strategy for increasing human capital development in the country, particularly girl child education.
“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 Almighty, we believe in God that gives and takes.
After that so what? What do we do to help the government stabilize and move the country forward?”
He added that it is an opportunity for religious and traditional leaders to work together for the betterment of the country
