We Can’t Just Keep Looking, Nigeria’s Problems Are Surmountable – Emir Sanusi

The Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, has declared that the problems facing Nigeria are surmountable if confronted with the right attitude.

The traditional ruler said many countries of the world have gone through greater challenges and come out of it victoriously.

He, however, added that to overcome the challenges, the people of the country can not just sit down, but have to give the right attitude, commitment, leadership, and ensure hands are on deck.

Naija News he stated this when he hosted the Kano State Commissioner for Information, Baba Halilu Dantiye, in the company of his counterpart, Commissioner of Science, Technology and Innovation, Mohammed Tajuddeen Othman, on a courtesy visit at the Emir’s palace.

He said, “I’m confident that the people of Kano, with our history, our resilience, and attitude can overcome the challenges and become things of the past.”

Sanusi added that “If we just keep looking at the problems (poverty, hunger, malnutrition, out-of-school children, illiteracy) and we think there is nothing we can do, but the reality is, with the right attitude, commitment, leadership, and support of all, these are not insurmountable problems.

”Nations have gone through worse, and they have come out of it. Even in this country, look at parts of the country ravaged by terrorism, which Allah has guided us to, and we hope Allah spares this and also spares those parts of the country and releases them.”

The Emir praised the Kano State government for the bold steps taken in education, especially girl child education, saying it is a solution to the nation’s myriad problems.

He called on the private sector and philanthropists to complement the government’s efforts in the areas of building schools, school feeding, and investment in transportation in order to address the present challenges facing Nigerians.
