Sultan rubbishes “Operation Shege Ka Fasa” outfit


The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ ad Abubakar III, on Thursday blamed the northern elites for allowing some youths to float “ what they called Operation Shege Ka Fasa .” He urged the regional leaders to caution the youths. The Sultan spoke at a Northern Security Meeting in Kaduna on Thursday. The Coalition of Northern Groups had unveiled the symbol of the security outfit on Wednesday in Kaduna. Sultan said , “ I saw it on the television, and the media gave them attention . Now , the elders allowed these youths to go forward . So, the elites are our problems , the elders are our problems. If the elders don’ t take the lead, the youth will do whatever they like and think they are right . You have to caution these youths by giving them good leadership. “ Now , they have launched their own security outfit I don ’t know what they call it, Shege Ka Fasa’ , meaning what ? “ So, I want to call on northern elders to caution them. Don ’ t allow these youths to take over leadership from you. You have to reach out to everybody no matter how low the person is. So, I think we need to take the bull by the horns and not allow the youths take over responsibility. I think we need to do that and much more. ” He asked the governors of the northern states to tackle the security challenges in the region. Abubakar also expressed concern over the 50,000 orphans in the region as a result of the Boko Haram insurgency . Sultan, who is the Nigerian Muslims spiritual leader , said if nothing was done about the orphans , they would turn out to be worse than Boko Haram. “ Several recommendations have been made but are not implemented and as they remain unimplemented , we will continue to suffer the consequences. ”
