HIS Royal Majesty Oba Dr. Olusegun Aderemi, JP, the Atayero of Aramoko Ekiti, Ekiti State on Tuesday, congratulated the
Sultan of Sokoto Alhaji Dr. Muhammad Sa’ad Abubaka, on the occasion of his 65th birthday.
The Sultan and President General, Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), clocks 65 today, 24 August, 2021.
In a statement titled, “Congratulations to an exceptional leader of man,” he described the Sultan as a symbol of peace, unity and development in the country.
According to him, “the Sultan’s contribution to peace, unity and development is not unnoticed as his star shines continuously across regions and kingdoms of our great country, Nigeria, and there can be no better time to appreciate this quintessential multifaceted leader of man than on a day like this, when his birth date is reached on calendar, whether he celebrates it or not,” he said.
Also, he applauded Sultan’s patience amid provocations, “On many occasions we have seen Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar patiently, against provocations, resolving conflicts even in regions and tribes outside his Sultanate and has collaborated with Federal Government in ensuring curtailment of several religion-laced crisis to curb an escalation.
But this patriotic disposition of the Sarkin Musulumi of Nigeria, things would have been worse, security wise, and things being more deteriorated would have necessitated the government spending more and taking more risks to manage.
“We appreciate the Sultan, who is Chairman, National Traditional Rulers Council of Nigeria (NTRCN) and Co-Moderator of the Council of Religions for Peace (CRP), globally, on his day as he clocks 65 this 24 August, 2021. It is his day as chosen by the Lord and we leverage on it, as an opportunity, to show our appreciation to the great leader.
“May Allah bless the age of His Eminence as we wish him long long life and prosperity.”
