Saraki said in the statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu: “I am delighted to congratulate you on this epoch anniversary of attaining the age of 60. Your legacies as the Sultan of Sokoto, the head of Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI) and President-General of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), are visible to all. You have continued to diligently serve humanity both in your immediate domain and the country at large.

“You remain a great source of blessing and inspiration to the entire country, especially your quest for peaceful coexistence, religious tolerance, fight against insurgency, free and compulsory education for the less privileged and the holistic development and unity of the entire country. I pray that the Almighty Allah will continue to grant you perfect health, long life and more wisdom in the discharge of your duties.”

The Senate President also wished the Sultan more fruitful years of service to the nation in particular and humanity in general. While also congratulating the Government and people of Sokoto State. He called on the entire country to continue to pray for the Sultan for more wisdom and strength.
