The sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar, has described hunger as the most deadly virus than coronavirus in Nigeria.

Speaking on Thursday at the first quarterly meeting of the Nigeria Inter-Religious Council (NIREC) in Abuja, the sultan said people are struggling to survive in the country.


The monarch asked the government to implement recommendations that would improve the standard of living of the people.

“There is a very serious virus that is killing Nigerians much higher than Coronavirus. That virus is hunger,” the sultan said.




“There is hunger virus and it’s very serious. You need to go round the country, into the villages, into the towns and see how people are really struggling to survive.

“These are very serious issues, and as religious and community leaders, we must continue to talk about these issues, and also send our recommendations to the government and watch how the government will implement the recommendations.”
