Dethroned Emir of Kano and former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Muhammadu Sanusi has said that he has every cause to be grateful to Allah and no regret for his life.
Sanusi, who currently serves as Khalifah Tijaniyat Movement of Nigeria, was dethroned by the government of Kano State, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje a couple of years ago. He spoke yesterday, August 6, in Abuja, at the premiere of a stage play, titled: “Emir Sanusi: Truth in Time.”
The Khalifah said: “I don’t think that God has taken anything away from me. So, I have no regret. I turned 61 years last year and in those years, I had the honour of having been the Chief Risk Officer at United Bank for Africa and the Chief Risk Officer at First Bank.
“I was Governor of Central Bank, Emir of Kano and now Khalifah, Tijaniyat Movement of Nigeria. If I have sadness, then I’m ungrateful. How many people have had the opportunity to be just one of those things?
“We have a long history of service to this country. My father, as the first Director-General of the Nigeria Intelligence Agency, set up the agency in 1960, the record is there to see. My parents, grandparents and great grandparents gave their lives to build this country,” he said.
Sanusi said that he will continue to speak and air his views to defend and rebuild Nigeria.
