“This is partly responsible for bad governance that has characterised our polity, subverting our development, perpetrating poverty and eliciting the unending social conflicts.

“This money based politics will continue to fuel the unprecedented corruption we see in our society; as a result of these our pristine values as people have been supplanted and our future thrown into jeopardy.

“All leaders, political, spiritual and traditional need to come together to salvage our polity from dangers that the current political culture poses.

“The consequences of ignoring these standards are already showing and we must not wait until the bubbles busts,” Abubakar said.

The Sultan admonished leaders at all levels to take issues of leadership seriously, saying “we cannot ignore centuries old wisdom which places high premium on leadership and places criteria for shouldering responsibilities.”

He said that in Islam, leadership was fundamental and it was bestowed at every level as a trust from Allah and for which Allah would hold those entrusted to account.

The agf had announced in may that the Nigerian government was about to begin the prosecution of about 400 suspected boko haram financiers and was profiling some high-profile Nigerians strongly suspected to be financing terrorism for prosecution.

 

Although the delay in their prosecution and unveiling of the suspects have been criticised in certain quarters, but malami assured that the federal government is determined to take stringent measures to counter insurgency in the country.
