KANO – Alhaji Maitama Sule, a former Nigeria’s Permanent Representative at the Nations, on Monday called on Nigerians to put the ’s interest above their personal interests.

Sule made the call when the Arewa Youth Development Foundation paid him a courtesy visit at his residence in Kano.

“That was what our founding fathers like Zik, Obafemi Awolowo,  Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, Sardauna, Aminu Kano and Tarka did.

“These belonged to different parties, tribes and religion, but they lived and worked together because the unity of the country was their main interest.


“About two weeks ago, I wrote to the Chairman of Forum and his colleagues. I also wrote to Mr President about the situation in the country.

“I did point that if we do put a stop to personal interests, we will have disastrous consequences in this country. I have written the letter and I will follow .

“We have never had so bad but what I believe is that  we have to get together and tell one another the , let us agree to accommodate our differences, be patient and put Nigeria above our own interest,’’ he said.

Sule, who is the Danmasani of Kano, however, urged youths to desist acts capable of causing chaos in the country as they had no country like Nigeria.

Earlier, the leader of the group, Mr Ashiru Sharif, said they were in his residence to express their concern what was happening in the country. (NAN)
