Let’s Stop Calling Ourselves The Giant Of Africa, Other Countries Are Now Ahead - Sanusi

A former Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi ll, has asked Nigeria to stop calling itself the giant of Africa, saying it is deceptive as many other African countries are now ahead.

 Sanusi said this when he spoke as a guest at the closing session of the Kaduna Investment Summit, tagged, ‘KadInvest 6.0.’


According to him, Ghana is now attracting industries than Nigeria, while noting that “Ghanaian President has become the leading President in Africa.”


The former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, lamented that the country had relied on crude oil, which is now struggling to sell.


In his words “Nigeria is ranked 114th in the global innovation index. We are lower than other African countries such as Kanya, Rwanda and Senegal. We are, in fact, ranked 14th in sub-saharan Africa. I think we should have this reality check and know where we are as a country. Let’s stop calling ourselves the Giant of Africa, because we are the giant with clay feet.”
