Sanusi: Zamfara Started Sharia In Nigeria, Today It Has The Highest Poverty Rate by khalifjgusau(m): 12:59pm On Apr 09, 2017
Muhammad Sanusi II, emir of Kano, says Zamfara state started the implementation of Sharia law in Nigeria, but currently, it has the highest poverty rate in the country.

Speaking at the Mo Ibrahim Forum in Marrakesh, Morocco on Saturday, Sanusi said many of those who seize religion as tool of getting power, are not necessarily better than the rest of the people.

He said they should however be given a chance to participate in a democracy, so that they do not go on “pushing a myth, that they were not given a chance”.
“I think the ability to give these groups a chance, you know people come and say they want to establish Islamic law, and they are elected,” he said.

“Give them four years, after sometime people find out that they have not improved education, they have not put food on the table, they’ve not provided healthcare, they vote them out.

“So long as you don’t give them a chance to try and succeed or fail, you have a myth of people being denied an alternative, that would make their lives better. I think the mistake that many people make is that they simply don’t have the patience to wait four years.

“We have had it in Nigeria; people came and said they were implementing Sharia. Zamfara state started Sharia in Nigeria, it has the highest rate of poverty in the country today.

“It’s a matter of time for people to realise that this is all deception, this is all politics, this is not religion; it is about politicians appropriating religion as a discourse for getting into power.”

Zamfara state implemented Sharia in 1999.

Yah Muliqu Sanusi, with due respect sir, what is been practiced in Zamfara, Nigeria is nothing but hypocrisy. We knew what Shariah means and not what Yerima did to ripped off the state treasury and also to subject the good people of Zamfara to abject poverty. Shariah means equality.

The thief called Ahmed Yerimo is nothing but a clown.

Islam has always been synonymous with poverty. This isn't news. Stay woke.

Modified: Only about 4 or 5 Islamic countries are doing well over about 30 or more. 4/30 is F9 so stop quoting me.

this man is on a silent mission to change the mentality of the people of the North.

Ganduje - governor of kano state seems to be towing the same part by starting a campaign against almajirism.


if the northern elites will have the liver to tell themselves the truth and stop using islam as a tool for achieving power and pay more attention to the education and economic well being of their people, their may be hope for the North.

They are not just economically poor but also mentally. And poverty of the mind is the greatest of them all.

The realities of the north is beginning to hit them. The earlier they accept this as the gospel truth, the better for them. I hope it does not end up costing his life. Cos the way those extremists carry religion for head no be here.

they fact is, they have no option than to accept the truth - its actually on the verge of consuming them. the social media is opening the eyes of the northern masses to how deep they have been shortchanged by their leaders.

its a ticking time bomb over there.

Brother, you can only live in deception for so long.

I think it's partly because he now know firsthand what it means to live with his people and with such mentality and problems everyday.

It's like a professor going back to his village after traveling the world and gelling with Nobel winners. The ignorance can be irksome.

Fact is that they somehow encourage begging which kills critical and rational thinking.

Remember a lady in hijab at along in ikeja using her baby to beg for food instead of selling pure water

Good point.

Perhaps he never played the "religion" card in his jet-speed rise to the top, but then that's another discussion altogether.

He doesn't have to stop being one to make sense. These are facts that should be made bare, northern Nigeria, and Nigeria as a whole needs to relax the religious overzealousness. So the country can develop proper.
