Nigerians applaud Emir Sanusi's comment on Buhari's bad economic policies
, August 25, 2016
“You don’t have to be an economist to know that any system that allows you to sit in your garden, and with a telephone call, make one billion Naira without investing a kobo, that system is wrong. It is unsustainable.
“And just so we are not always blaming the previous administration. We have also made mistakes in this administration. We have started retracing our steps or we have to retrace those steps.
“And if we fall into the same holes that we fell into the last time where the government is always right… If a policy is wrong, it is wrong. Nothing will make it right and it has to be changed.”
The above warning by the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi against the wrong economic policies of President Muhammadu Buhari has been trending on the social media.
The emir gave the warning yesterday while delivering a paper entitled, “Nigeria In Search Of New Growth model” at the 15th meeting of the Joint Planning Board and National Council on Development Planning.
He said Buhari would end up like his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan if appropriate measures are not taken to put good policies in place.
Nigerians have taken to the social media to express overwhelming support to Sanusi’s comment while urging President Buhari to heed to the Emir’s opinion.
