Nigerians Want Solutions To Power Problem Now – Emir Sanusi Tells Fashola


SAN FRANCISCO, November 25, (THEWILL) – Emir of Kano and former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi, has told the Minister of Works, Power and Housing, Babatunde Fashola that Nigerians are waiting for him for solutions in the power sectors.

Speaking at the 42nd convocation lecture of the University of Benin, Sanusi declared that prayers without good policies cannot take Nigeria out the current economic recession.

“Fashola is one good example of the brains we have as a nation but Nigerians want to hear how many houses were built, how many kilowatts of electricity were added and how many kilometers of road that were constructed,” he said

“God is being used as a responsibility for our failure.

“If you want to deal with recession, there are policies to be put in place and your economy will grow.

“Your economy will be stagnant if you keep praying and no policy to tackle recession.”

“We will not pray our way out of recession,” Fashola responded in his lecture entitled: 'Freedom from fear: Challenges before the New Generation'.

“We will plan and produce our way back to prosperity and out of recession.

“If we spend our time praying and socializing, how can this lead us to prosperity?. This government will deliver to all Nigerians and we shall smile again.”
