Muhammadu Sanusi II, the Emir of Kano, in a recent statement revealed that he has decided to avoid controversies after the 2019 elections in Nigeria.
“My new post election resolution is to avoid controversies – economics, politics,” he said on Tuesday night in Lagos during a dinner organized to celebrate the 125th anniversary of First Bank of Nigeria.
“My prayer is that with these elections, the government would not think of the next four years, but the government would think of Nigeria 125 years from now,” he added.
He further called for commitment to the girl child education.
The Emir also lamented the number of children who died daily because of their parents inability to access health care.
Sanusi who was a former Chief Executive Officer of First Bank before eventually emerging as the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), said that the issue of poverty and malnutrition in the country especially the underprivileged citizens who had been marginalized needed to be addressed.
