Muhammadu Sanusi II

Muhammadu Sanusi II, Emir of Kano,  has said that should Nigerian be broken into smaller components today, the northern part of the country would be the poorest of the regions.

The Emir also urged Muslims to imbibe and adopt western education and stop using religion and culture to set the region backward.

Emir Sanusi said this in his key note address during the opening ceremony of Kaduna State’s investment and economic summit (KADINVEST), titled ‘Promoting Investment Amidst Economic Challenges’.

The emir then urged that it would be wrong to mirror living standard in the north in line with the oil rich Niger Delta, commercially viable Lagos and business oriented south-east.

He also said that the North East and West are the most poorest in the country and even in the world.

Other Muslim countries have pushed on. We are fighting culture, we are fighting civilisation. You tell me that you should not write love book in northern Nigerian. He also says it is wrong to burn books of science based on religion.

“What is the crime of those books?” he asks. Going further, he questioned the right of people in having more children in the region without having the resource to take care of them.

In conclusion, he asks, “of what benefit is it to the north, having three million children roaming about?”

    I commend the Emir of Kano because most times he speakes from the heart no matter whose ox is gored.
    Come to think of it; you abhor Western education based on religious sentiments and you are driving a car, using a mobile phone, having electric lights in your house instead of firewood, flying in an airplane instead of using donkeys? Yet you say Western education is a Sin? Abeg it all smacks of hypocrisy of a gargantuan size.
