Muhammad Sanusi II, the Emir of Kano, has stated that he gets into trouble whenever he delivers a speech in Kaduna state.
The former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) said this on Tuesday, at the commissioning of Olam International’s feed mill poultry
Sanusi said: ”It is always a pleasure to associate with the giant stride driven by my friend, the governor of Kaduna state.
”The problem, of course, is that every time I give a speech in Kaduna, I get myself into trouble.”
Sanusi stated that the agriculture sector is crucial to securing employment for Nigeria’s teeming young population.
He said Nigeria has a population of 170million, adding that in the next 20 years, the country would have 85 million Nigerians within the ages of 20 and 40.
”That is more than the population of Germany, the world’s third largest economy.
”The only way we are going to provide for this mass of young men is to invest in Agriculture and industry. So, this is not just about food security, it is about the security of our nation,” Sanusi added.
