The former Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi, has blamed the current hardship in Nigeria on former President Muhammadu Buhari.
Sanusi said it would be unfair to blame President Bola Tinubu for the hardship Nigerians are experiencing.
Speaking on Sunday during a virtual religious event, the former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, said Buhari’s administration failed to heed his counsel on how to salvage the country from economic woes.
The former Emir also vowed to criticise Tinubu if he sees any wrong economic policy in the future.
According to Sanusi: “If I am to be fair and just to President Bola Tinubu, he is not to blame for the current hardship; for eight years, we were living a fake lifestyle with huge debt from foreign and domestic debts.
“I can’t join other Nigerians criticising Tinubu on the current economic hardship, and I am not saying he is a saint free from wrongdoing, but in this current economic situation, President Tinubu is not to be blamed.”
He insisted that there was no other alternative than to remove the subsidy on fuel.
