2023: Buhari’s successor ‘ll face multiple problems – Sanusi

A former Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN Governor, and 14th Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, has said that whoever succeeds President Muhammadu Buhari will face multiple of problems that the nation passed through in 2015.

Sanusi, former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, noted that the country was in a “deep hole” at the end of former President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration in 2015, but added that the country would have been in a “deeper hole” by 2023.

Sanusi said this while speaking in Abeokuta, capital of Ogun State, on Monday, when he paid a courtesy visit to Chief Tayo Sowunmi, Babanla Adinni of Egbaland and Baba Adinni of Ijemo, Abeokuta, as part of events scheduled for Sowunmi’s 80th birthday celebration.

He wondered if those jostling to succeed Buhari knew the enormity of the challenges battling the country and the wherewithal to tackle them.

Sanusi therefore, solicited for prayers from all Nigerians and also canvassed for the need for citizens to vote politicians who have the capacity, competence and can be trusted.

Sanusi, who is the Grand Khalifah of the Tijjaniyyah Movement in Africa, said, “I think we should also remind ourselves as Muslims and as citizens that we owe it to ourselves to elect those who can have our trust.

“If you choose somebody who is imperfect to lead you, if you choose somebody who is weak to lead you, if choose someone who is incompetent to lead you, you can only blame yourselves because Allah says you should only give that trust to those who can be trusted. “
