Religious crisis in Nigeria fuelled by politicians – Sultan

The Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar, on Sunday, blamed the political class for using their political ambitions to fuel religious suspicions and unrest in the country.

The Sultan made the assertion at Saint David’s Cathedral Hall in Akure while meeting with religious leaders under Nigerian Inter-Religious Council (NIREC) as part of his two-day visit to Ondo State.

Mr Abubakar advised Nigerians to shun politicians and affluent people who are politicising religion, noting that the Bible and the Quran do not belong to any political party.

On the alleged demolition of a mosque in Port-Harcourt by the Rivers State Government, the monarch said NIREC at the national level was already handling the issue for an amicable resolution.

The Sultan is in Akure at the invitation of the Deji of Akure, Aladetoyinbo Aladelusi, following the hosting of an Akure annual cultural festival.

He said nobody could claim to love God without loving his neighbours, whether Muslims or Christians.
