Sultan, who is the National Chairman of traditional rulers gave the task during the fifth anniversary of the 17th Emir of Lafia, Justice Sidi Bage-Mohammed (retd) in Lafia, on Saturday.

The Sultan of Sokoto, however, urged Nigerians to always pray for their leaders to succeed.

He also appealed to leaders at all levels to expedite action toward tackling the economic hardship and security challenges bedeviling the country.

He said, “We know that our leaders are trying, but the people are in a hurry to see positive changes that will renew their hopes for a better life.”
