PostSubject: How Uthman Dan Fodio stood against corruption — Osinbajo   2016-11-04, 20:15

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Thursday drew from the recorded words of Uthman Dan Fodiyo, the founder of the Sokoto Caliphate, on the need for leaders to stand firm against extremism, injustice and corruption in the country.
Speaking in Sokoto at the 10th year commemoration symposium for the Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar’s ascension to the throne, Mr. Osinbajo recalled the legacy of Dan Fodiyo, saying he acknowledged that a leader had the responsibility not to be corrupt and also to look after the well-being of his people.
“He wrote and I quote ‘when you find a man who has the tendency to steal, he is in same class as a monkey’,” Mr. Osinbajo said.
The event was attended by Sokoto State’s Governor Aminu Tambuwal, the Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi, among several other dignitaries.
Mr. Osinbajo also traced the legacies of past Sultans, their contributions towards promoting justice, jurisprudence and overall development of the society.
He said it was gratifying that Mr. Abubakar, the 20th Sultan, took after his forebears.
He said the reign of the monarch has been remarkable given the myriad of challenges which the country has been facing since he ascended the throne.
He said the Sultan is in good standing both with his people and Nigerians.
“You have led by a string values and you have worked hard to break parochial barriers. You have developed deep friendship with leaders such as Cardinal Onaiyekan, Bishop Matthew Kukah, Christian leaders and leaders of all faiths locally and internationally,” Mr. Osinbajo said.
He congratulated him for the milestone recorded in the last decade and praised the Sultan for “your extended great kindness and generosity to so many, regardless of status, recognising common humanity and frailties of all”.
Before declaring the symposium open, Vice President Osinbajo prayed for continuing strength, good health, wisdom and long life for the Sultan.
