I would've been president If I went into politics - Emir Sanusi

Former Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido says he would become president had he ventured into politics.

The former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, who is also the current Khalifah, Tijaniyat Movement of Nigeria, stated this at a stage play titled “Emir Sanusi: Truth in Time,” on Saturday in Abuja.

Speaking on a number of issues, Lamido said he believes Nigerians are in their comfort zones as the country rots under the watch of the political class.

According to him, Nigerians "take too much rubbish" as he warned that "by the time these guys finish with us, our children will not have a nation”.

The dethroned Emir of Kano said that despite the threats and challenges, he will continue to speak and air his views to defend and rebuild Nigeria.

Sanusi also insisted that he would be ungrateful to God if he expressed regret over his removal as emir of Kano in spite of the positions he occupied in life.

He said: "We can’t be intimidated by somebody because you are a president or you are a governor and we can’t tell you that you are wrong. If I have gone into politics, at least given the people that have succeeded in becoming president in Nigeria, I could have been president."

"That I chose not to go into politics doesn’t make me a subordinate human being. We take too much rubbish and we are all too afraid, too much on our comfort zones and by the time these guys finish with us, our children will not have a nation. If you are not in politics, you must hold those in politics to account."
