Nigerians are Hungry because they are lazy - Sultan of Sokoto

The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III,
yesterday, attributed the current economic
recession and hunger to laziness of leaders
and the people.
The Sultan made the remark during the 22nd
National Ummah Convention in Sokoto.
The convention which has as its theme:
“Agriculture: Panacea to Nigeria’s Economic
Recession”, was aimed at addressing the
cognate issues of hunger in the country.
“Much is needed from the government and the
general public to tackle hunger, as our
laziness could not aid our progress.
“Yes, there is hunger in the country, but we
have been so much lazy to tackle the issue, as
we always depend on government and other
wealthy individuals to assist us.
“Moreover, no one could solve our own
problems, but we should improve more on
agriculture, in order to tackle them and yield a
better society,” Abubakar said.
Governor Aminu Tambuwal thanked the
organisers of the convention and commended
them for their consistency in organising it
Tambuwal, who was represented by the state
Commissioner for Religious Affairs, Alhaji Mani
Maishinku, assured that the state government
was ever ready to collaborate with the Ummah
in achieving the said objectives.
“The theme of this year’s convention is
considered timely as it is in tune with the
programmes of the Federal and State
governments in agricultural development.
The Chairman of the occasion, Malam Ahmad
Bello, lauded the Federal Government,”for
defeating Boko Haram threats to security”.
“Having thus addressed the issue of insecurity
last year, it is only logical that we should, this
year, address the cognate issue of hunger in
the country.
“Our political and spiritual leaders must do
something about this, and urgently too, as it
would be a crime, a sin, and a folly, not to do
so,” Bello said
