The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II, on Friday, April 19, stated that despite the desperate clamor for restructuring in Nigeria, on grounds that it will ease the economy and also yield several benefits in other spheres, restructuring is not the solution to Nigeria’s problems.
According to Emir Sanusi, restructuring is a catch phrase tactically wielded by politicians and the lite to sway the gullible masses.
Speaking in Abuja at the 9th Triennial National Conference/Merit Award of the Ansar-Ud-Deen Society of Nigeria (ADSN) with the theme: “Justice, Equity and Peaceful Coexistence: Ideas and Reality in a Multi-Religious Nation”, Sanusi stressed that restructuring has been a major bone of contention for violence and insecurity in the country.
The Emir who was represented by a Senior Lecturer of the Islamic Studies at the Bayero University Kano (BUK), Dr. Bashir Aliyu Umar, enjoined Nigerians not to fall for the restructuring line.
His words: “We have elite in the society that have received the best of care from the resources of the society. People of my age and those before me attended public schools from primary to university. Unfortunately, the elites that benefited from the system in the past have left public institutions to become vandalized, dilapidated and substituted it with a private education system that is affordable only to a very few.
“The health system has also been vandalized and now people have to go on medical tourism in India, Egypt, and Europe.
”The unfortunate thing is sometimes before you get the air ambulance the will of Allah will take place,” the Emir said.
