The Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar has called on youths in the country to shun politicians who may want to use them as political thugs during the 2019 elections.

The Sultan made call at the Kofar Kware Juma’at Mosque, during the closing of Ramadan Tafsir conducted by Sheikh Ahmad Helele.

“I am calling on our teaming youths to shun thuggery now that we are approaching electioneering campaigns,” he said

He added, “Don’t allow disgruntled politicians to use you as political thugs by providing you with drugs and all sort of weapons to attack your own brothers because of political differences while their own children are schooling abroad. ”

However, he advised citizens to go get their voters’ cards and vote for responsible candidates, who would work towards improving their lives, in the forthcoming general elections. He further, admonished other traditional rulers to always tell leaders the truth.
