The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Saad Abubakar III, has called on leaders to reflect on dangers posed by the trend of excessive materialism that has engulfed politics in Nigeria.

The Sultan, who disclosed this while presenting a paper at the 2022 Annual Lecture/Dinner of the Barewa Old Boys Association (BOBA) in Maiduguri, on Saturday, said leaders must do the needful before these dangers consumed the society or spring more surprises like they have done before.

“The problem today in Nigeria is that this good governance is becoming increasingly elusive as a result of which despair and frustration are gradually setting in and building up to levels that threaten the stability of our society.

“It is in this spirit of our responsibility as leaders that I wish to draw our attention to these increasing trends and the need to take some extraordinary measures to address them before they overwhelm us completely,” he said.
