LATEST: Resolve Lingering Strike – Lamido Sanusi To FG, ASUU

Nigeria Is Living On Borrowed Time – Sanusi Lamido Sanusi

by Victor Ndubuisi

Muhammadu Sanusi II, the former Emir of Kano, claimed on Monday that Nigeria is “living on extra time,” and that the country will face more challenges starting in 2023.

Sanusi cautioned presidential hopefuls to be prepared for the country’s myriad difficulties.

Sanusi, the former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria and leader of the Tijaniyya sect in Nigeria, spoke during a reception for him (Sanusi) in Abeokuta, Ogun State, as part of celebrations commemorating Babanla Adinni of Egbaland, Chief Tayo Sowunmi’s 80th birthday.

“To be honest, we’re living on borrowed time,” Sanusi admitted. We were in a deep hole in 2015.
We will be in an even deeper hole in 2023 than we were in 2015.


“Those vying for the presidency, I hope they realize that the issues they will confront will be multiplied by the problems they encountered in 2015.” We must all be prepared to make difficult decisions, and if we do, we will all suffer the price.

“However, the solution does not require all of us to enter politics. This country is in desperate need of decent politicians.

It will need imams, pastors, and bishops to speak up and remind them (politicians) of God’s terror.

It need technocrats who will challenge their policies. It need traditional rulers who will act as the people’s conscience. Everyone has a job to play, and we should all do our best to fulfill that part.”

Sanusi, on the other hand, denied that he is targeting the president in 2023, claiming that he is comfortable as the Tijaniyyah’s spiritual head.

“I will eternally be grateful to Allah,” he said, noting that he has served in numerous roles in the past and present.
