Abubakar in his Sallah message in Sokoto State, on Tuesday, said that the existing hardship in the country was of great concern, adding that proper measures were required to address it.

“Nigeria leaders need to strategies more measures to address our level of poverty and insecurity, as such will further sustain the unity and peaceful co-existence that is in existence in the country.

“It is no longer a story but a reality, people are in dire need of the leaders’ commitment to addressing the high rate of poverty, insecurity, and hunger among other numerous challenges.
