Abubakar spoke at a National Symposium and Lauching of 2025 Vision by Da’awah Coordination Council of Nigeria (DCCN).

He said that he had met with some leaders in Taraba and cautioned them against playing politics with lives of the people.

He said that leaders must focus on putting out fire where there was one, and stressed the need to reach out to all stakeholders toward restoring normalcy.

The Sultan urged government to strive to bring culprits of the Mambilla violence to book, and warned against derogatory terms like Islamic fundamentalists or extremists, Fulani attackers, Berom or Mambilla terrorists.

“It is such derogatory terms that fueled the crisis,” Abubakar declared.
