The Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III has said that the current economic recession beleaguering Nigeria is ordained by God.
The monarch, who said this while distributing items to 270 widows, orphans and other less-privileged persons, said Nigerians should seek repentance from God to get out of the recession.
“The only solution to this is for us to show piety and repent. It is ordained by God. So, Nigerians should seek for repentance from God,” he said.
The Sultan urged Christians and Muslims to use their respective Holy Scriptures as guide for living their lives.
