The Sultan of Sokoto and President General of the Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III, has advised politicians who seek redress in court to accept the outcomes of the 2023 elections in good faith.
In his Eid-el-Fitr message to Nigerians, Abubakar urged politicians to support whoever emerges as the winner of the elections for the sustenance of peace, unity, and development. He emphasized that the elections have come and gone, and people should go about their routine activities peacefully.
Abubakar also expressed his gratitude to Allah for the successful completion of the Ramadan fast by the Muslim Ummah across the country.
He urged everyone to sustain the lessons learned during Ramadan and to continue to show generosity to the less privileged among them, in order to enhance their relationships and sustain their love for one another.
