Deposed Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi has urged Nigerians to be patient and pray for the economy to work instead of raining insults on their leaders.
The former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria and leader of the Tijjaniyya Sect in Nigeria, said this while addressing members of the Sect from seven states of the North West, in Sokoto on Tuesday September 21.
According to Sanusi, people must suffer for things to get right. He said;
“In my own knowledge about economy, I know that we must suffer to get things right.
“What is expected of us now is patient, fervent prayers and we must stand up to get things better in our own way through a legitimate ways.
“We must desist from abusing or cursing our leaders because the Holy Prophet is against that.
“And we will not involve ourselves in corrupt practices and other atrocities because our religion preaches against it.
“We must change for the better and remain committed to peace and development of our societies."
