The Emir of Kano, Malam Muhammad Sanusi II, has blamed the previous administration led by Goodluck Jonathan for the lingering economic hardship in Nigeria.
Sanusi, a former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), attributed the current hardship to the way and manner the previous administration handled the affairs of the nation.
He stated this when Nigeria’s Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, visited him on Saturday during a working visit to Kano State.
Speaking on the economic hardship, Sanusi, however, called on the government to find lasting solution to the hardship. The emir, according to PM News, also advised government to step up effort in enlightening Nigerians on the nation’s economic situation.
He said the emirate council would do same and pleaded with Nigerians to bear with the situation, promising that the hardship would soon be overcome. Also speaking, Osinbajo stressed that the Buhari-led administration was committed to transforming the living standard of Nigerians.
According to him, the federal government was doing everything possible to overcome the challenge soon.
He told the emir that he was in the state to sympathise with the state government, Emirate council and the entire people of the state on the recent fire outbreak at the Abubakar Rimi Market.
“We also came to inspect some of the developmental projects executed by the leadership of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje,” Osinbajo said.
