Sanusi Urges Buhari To Avoid Jonathan’s Mistake

The Emir of Kano, Lamido Sanusi II, has warned President Muhammadu Buhari that his administration may end like the Jonathan administration if it fails to retrace its footsteps. Sanusi gave the warning on Wednesday, August 24, while delivering a lecture at the ongoing 15th meetings of the joint planning board and national council on development planning in Kano, titled ‘Nigeria in search of new growth model’.
The former CBN governor said the issue of terrorism currently facing the country is a result of the government’s inability to create employment opportunities for the over 80 million youths in the country. Sanusi lamented that the country has not been able to attract investments. He said the example of Lagos state typifies what Nigeria can achieve.
On the resurgence of militancy in the Niger Delta region, he cautioned those he described as “clamouring to break up the country because of oil” to stop the agitation. He said that oil would soon become insignificant globally. The emir said: “There is nothing we are facing today that we did not know would happen. We made mistakes, many of them deliberate. We ignored every single warning. ”We should not continue to blame the previous administration, as we have also made some mistakes in the current administration. “We must retrace our steps; otherwise we may fall into the same trap we fell the last time when the government was always right. “The bottom line is that if your policy is wrong, it is you that must change.” “If we do not expand the economy through wise investment, we can end up in classical Malthusian situation.”
