Northern Nigeria will be in trouble if Nigeria breaks up – Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II

by on April 6, 2017
The Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, has called on Northern leaders to devote more resources to the devel­opment of the region.
He warned that in the event of the country break­ing up as is being canvassed in some quarters, the North will be worse affected.
According to the mon­arch, other regions like the South-South, the South East and the South West, es­pecially Lagos, have the re­sources to remain afloat if the unexpected happens.
The former Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) governor spoke on Wednesday at the Kaduna State’s 2nd invest­ment summit titled: “Pro­moting Investment Amidst Economic Challenges.” Sanusi remarked that the North East and North West were the poorest re­gions in the country.
He said: “If we break Nigeria into components, Northern Nigeria will be the poorest.”
The Emir cautioned that the oil-rich Niger Delta, com­mercially-viable Lagos and business-oriented South East should not be used to mir­ror the living standards of the North.
Sanusi appealed to Mus­lims to embrace education and stop using religion and culture to set the North backward.
He was joined at the event in the appraisal of develop­ments in the North by the Sul­tan of Sokoto, Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar III.
The Kano monarch de­cried the face-off between the Executive, Legislature and Ju­dicial arms of government and appealed to the trio to stop playing politics with the lives of Nigerians.
Sanusi noted that the Na­tional Assembly and the Exec­utive arm of government, rath­er than concentrate on how to tackle the country’s problems, were wasting time on a need­less ego contest.
He said: “We are talking and thinking of how to come out of the difficult economic environment facing the coun­try; the Executive, the Nation­al Assembly and the Judiciary are busy fighting one anoth­er on political issues ahead of 2019.”
Sanusi reminded his au­dience that “if you have been reading and watching news for the last one month, the big and concerned news politically is about leadership, but unfortu­nately, the conversation is not about electricity, infrastruc­ture, education and health­care.”
“All the conversation is about the National Assem­bly, the Executive and the Ju­diciary; conflict between this politician and that politician as well as confirmation of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) boss.”
While regretting that with­in the period in review “there has been no serious conversa­tion around the people,” Sanu­si said that the problem with the political class is that “it has made more noise at the expense of good governance.”
He congratulated Gover­nor Nasir el-Rufai for organ­ising the forum, which he de­scribed as timely.

    Emir of Kano is the only realist followed by senator Shehu Sani in the northern part of the country.

    Comment…I think Sanusi is a very discrete someone,he does not think the way his counterpart does.

    I think the emir had made a great point, I.e by stating the statement of fact: any time the north thinks that they will use other regions to sustain their lifes and survival that is the begining of their sorrow and suffering.
    Their elites anly created the opium amongst the muslims that Allah said and not said to control their mind, while they keep rulling over the majority poor northerners. Secondly, they love taking out innocent peoples lifes all in the name of religion. And soon, the north would be an unsave haven should the country disintegrate. Their suffering would be so, so unbelievable.
    If when the most oil Wells are owned by the north and their people are suffering, how much more when the country disintegrate? Think about it.

    Emir Sanusi is the absolute voice of the northerners of Nija. It costs him nothing to tell his people the bitter truth. Well, he is among the visionaries.
