Accept 2023 Elections Outcome, Sultan Advises Politicians Seeking Redress In Court

Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III, the Sultan of Sokoto and President-General of the Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, has instructed politicians seeking legal redress to accept the results of the 2023 elections in good faith.

The recommendation was made by Abubakar in his Friday speech to Nigerians in Sokoto for Eid ul-Fitr.

”The elections had come and gone, people should go ahead with their routine activities peacefully.

“Politicians seeking redress in courts should take the outcomes in good faith and support whoever emerges for the sustenance of peace, unity and development,” he said.

The sultan appreciated the Almighty Allah for the successful completion of the Ramadan fast by the Muslim Ummah across the country.

“During the period of Ramadan, we have learned a lot from our scholars, we should continue to sustain those lessons to be part of life.

“As mankind, we always appreciate the Almighty Allah for the gift of life and good health to be among those that will celebrate this great day.

“Our generosity to the less privileged among us should be maintained in order to enhance our relationship and sustain our love for one another,” he urged.

He, however, felicitated with all the Muslims across the country and prayed for the elected leaders to succeed in delivering their campaign promises to the citizens.
