Emir Sanusi: Nigeria Needs Progressive Economic Policies

The Emir of Kano and former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Muhammadu Sanusi II, has said that the country needs policies that will boost economic growth.

Emir Sanusi, who spoke in Lagos on Wednesday at the public presentation of Funmi Oyetunji’s book - ‘A Conscious Life’ - said, "We need to think through what we do and on the bigger picture too by coming up with policies that will lead us to where we simply want to go.”

The emir also stated that most of the religious crises being experienced in the country and the world at large had roots in poor economic policies and bad governance.

“Being an economist, my perspective has always been that a lot of problems we think are religious do have roots in bad economics and bad policies that create poverty and therefore lead to conflicts.”
