Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, on Wednesday, said that the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, was right on the issue of corruption in Nigeria. He spoke with CNN’s Christine Amanpour.
His words: “Yes, General Buhari is right on the level of corruption in the country and we need to address this sufficiently. We have not helped the situation by living in denial (that the situation does not exist). I don’t want to dwell on this because of the time that we are and we are close to an election,”.
The former CBN governor added that Buhari’s campaign is mainly to fight corruption, which he maintained had not allowed appreciable national growth.
On the ‘NNPC missing $20billion’, the Emir said: “This has not been addressed adequately and from the account of the corporation, about $20billion was not remitted to the federation account. We need to address this,”.
On Boko Haram, Sanusi urged all leaders to rise up to speak against the activities of the terror group saying that he was not afraid to die as a result of his opposition to the sect.
“I have achieved everything that I could achieve; so, what is there to be afraid of?” he said.
