Operation Shege Ka Fasa: We were not consulted before security outfit was inaugurated – Sultan
The Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar, has distanced himself and the Northern Traditional Rulers from the recently launched security outfit, Operation Shege Ka Fasa.
He explained that the traditional rulers in the region were not consulted before the security outfit was inaugurated, stressing that the monarchs were not in support of the regional body.
He made the remarks during the inauguration of the Northern Security Monitoring Committee in Kaduna State, north-west Nigeria.
He also took a swipe at the leaders and political elites in the region for failing to provide good leadership to the people.
The traditional ruler believes these leaders are responsible for the establishment of the security outfit which he describes as illegal and the upsurge of youth restiveness in the region.
He stressed the urgent need for northern leaders and elders to rise up to their responsibilities and provide the right leadership for their people.
