Former Emir of Kano Muhammad Sanusi has declared that he will go on speaking up and expressing his opinions in order to preserve and rebuild Nigeria.
At a stage performance named “Emir Sanusi: Truth in Time” on Saturday in Abuja, Sanusi—who is also the current Khalifah of the Tijaniyat Movement of Nigeria—made this declaration.
The play was authored by Redeemer University drama professor Ahmed Yerima, and the Executive Chairman, Duke of Somolu Productions’, Mr. Joseph Edgar.
Because of his extensive record of national service, Sanusi said that he had what it required to contribute to nation-building.
Sanusi claimed that regardless of the roles he held during his life, it would be disrespectful to God to show regret or remorse about his ouster as emir.
“I don’t think that God has taken anything away from me. So, I have no regret.

“I turned 61 years last year and in those years, I had the honour of having been the Chief Risk Officer at United Bank for Africa and the Chief Risk Officer at First Bank.
“I was Governor of Central Bank, Emir of Kano and now Khalifah, Tijaniyat Movement of Nigeria.
“If I have sadness, then I’m ungrateful. How many people have had the opportunity to be just one of those things?’’ he observed.
Sanusi added that before most leaders became traditional rulers they’ve served in top positions as army generals, governors, Nigeria Customs chief and others.
He claimed that these traditional rulers sacrificed their bits to benefit the country.
