AHEAD of today's primaries of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to pick its presidential flag-bearer, the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Mohammed Sa'ad has called on the aspirants to abide by the rules of the game.

The Sultan spoke to journalists yesterday at the presidential wing of the Murtala Muhammed Airport, after his inspection of Hajj formations in Lagos.

He urged the aspirants to eschew violence at the polls. The monarch also reminded them that only God gives power, so anybody who loses should accept his fate, while the winner should carry others along.
