The Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar IV, yesterday in the United States of America, USA, pleaded with the international community to increase material and logistic support for President Muhammadu Buhari to fight and win the anti-corruption war.

Speaking with top United States government officials at the Woodrow Wilson Centre yesterday, the Sultan said he not only endorsed the war against corruption, but also decried the conversion of funds meant for purchase of arms to fight Boko Haram to personal use by few Nigerians.

He added that such funds would have enhanced the capacity of the military to fast track the fight against insurgency and possibly curtail the menace in the North-East Nigeria.

Speaking earlier, the Director of Woodrow Wilson Centre extolled the leadership qualities of the Sultan and thanked him for his tremendous support and assistance to United States agencies working on health-related and development issues in Nigeria.
