Alhaji Abubakar made the plea  in a statement in Sokoto yesterday.

He said Nigeria would continue to remain one nation with a common goal of purposeful development.

Alhaji Abubakar said the action of some should not be allowed to tear the country apart, adding that bad ones should be called to order by their elders and community leaders.

He challenged elder statesmen to call the youth to order and educate them on the need for  peaceful coexistence in their respective geo-political zones.

He said traditional leaders would continue to preach love among the diverse communities in their domains throughout the country.

He urged Nigerians to live in peace and respect one another and go about their normal businesses

The Sultan promised the federal and state governments as well as security agencies in their collective efforts to bring sustained peace and development to the country.
