Justice Mamman Nasir on Thursday said that enemies of Nigeria were responsible in the death of the first Premier of Northern Nigeria, Sir Ahmadu Bello, Sardauna of Sokoto, 50 years ago.

According to him, “his killers didn’t have reason to do so because late Ahmadu Bello was a leader for all.”

The eminent jurist spoke during the 50th Anniversary celebration of late Sir Ahmadu Bello organised in Kaduna by Sardauna Foundation.     

He said present leaders need to emulate Sir Ahmadu Bello’s good leadership style to be able to move the country and region forward.

“I am proud to see many governors here in attendance. Enemies of this country murdered him and they have no reason to do so. Sir Ahmadu is for all of us therefore I implore you to emulate him,” he added.

In his remarks, the Guest Speaker at the occasion, elder statesman Ambassador Maitama Sule,  said late Ahmadu Bello lived and died for his people. He described Late Sardauna as a leader that loved his people dearly.

“He lived and died for his people. He was a leader that loved his people and region. People obeyed him because he dedicated his life for them. He was not a tribalist who tried to make northern Nigeria as one people. Under this current political dispensation we are beginning to see change. God willing we will begin to see the end of our problems. I will keep praying until my dream became realised. I have a dream that Nigeria will be great again,” Alhaji Sule said.

President Muhammadu Buhari represented by Kaduna State Governor Nasir el-Rufai said it is his duty to defend unity of this country.

He urged leaders in the country to work towards uniting the country in the realisation of the dream of the country founding fathers.

President Buhari lamented on the level of poverty, corruption, insecurity and other social vices bedeviling the country as he stressed that the present leadership must be guided by what the founding fathers stood for.

President Buhari enjoined the leaders to work hard to serve the people and ensure the restoration of the country in all spheres of life, which according to him was the philosophy that the late Sardauna lived and died for.
