Sultan of Sokoto, Abubakar Sa’ad has said that Jamatrul Nasril Islam,JNI, will take a common position on the 2015 Presidential election, after assessing the condition and welfare of Muslims under the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan.
The Sultan made the statement on Sunday, at the opening ceremony of the national conference on the role of Muslim scholars in fostering unity, peace and security in Nigeria.
The conference was held to find ways that could lead to a lasting solution to the violence in the northern Nigeria in recent years.
The Sultan of Sokoto has said the evaluation of the present government had become necessary, so as to find out if the president has treated Muslim faithfuls fairly since he assumed power.
Whether or not to support President Jonathan's 2015 re-election will be based on the outcome.
The sultan insisted the muslims are not responsible and not to be blamed for the crisis rocking the north and claiming of lives rather he accused the powerful people in politics for the security challenges.
