Citizens must suffer to get things working in Nigeria: Sanusi

Nigerians should quit disrespecting their leaders, according to Muhammadu Sanusi. The deposed emir of Kano stated that citizens must be willing to suffer in order for the country to work.


Mr Sanusi, who is also the leader of the Tijaniyya sect in Nigeria, delivered the speech on Tuesday in Sokoto to members of the religious group.

“From my personal experience with the economy, I know that we will have to suffer in order to set things right. Mr Sanusi stated, "We must refrain from criticizing or cursing our leaders since the Holy Prophet forbade it."


He asked Nigerians to pray earnestly, wait patiently, and hold the government responsible for the country's growth.


“We will not participate in corrupt acts or other crimes because our religion forbids them.


“When people approach you during an election, you should ask for acknowledgment in terms of school construction, health care, and other services,” Mr Sanusi added.


In August, the Peoples Gazette alleged that Kaduna governor Nasir El-Rufai, a friend of Mr Sanusi's, withdrew N25 million from the state's coffers to welcome the former emir and prominent politicians at the inaugural Muhammadu Sanusi II colloquium.
