Former CBN governor, Sanusi Lamido, says he has no regrets in life
Dethroned Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi says he will continue to express his views on issues of national significance as they relate to Nigerian growth and development.
He noted that history has been kind to him as some of the things he prophesied about Nigeria had happened and he’s been vindicated.
Sanusi also insisted that he would be ungrateful to God if he expressed regret over his removal as emir of Kano in spite of the positions he occupied in life.
The former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, who is also the current Khalifah, Tijaniyat Movement of Nigeria, stated this at a stage play titled “Emir Sanusi: Truth in Time,” on Saturday in Abuja.
Sanusi said he has what it takes to contribute to nation-building because of his long history of service to the country.
“I don’t think that God has taken anything away from me. So, I’ve no regrets.
“I turned 61years last year and in those years, I had the honour of having been the Chief Risk Officer at United Bank for Africa and the Chief Risk Officer at First Bank.
“I was Governor of the Central Bank, Emir of Kano and now Khalifah, Tijaniyat Movement of Nigeria.
“If I have sadness, then I am ungrateful. How many people have had the opportunity to be just one of those things?” He observed.
He added, “History is always the best judge. The things that I said would happen that caused me so much trouble have happened.
“For me, I have absolutely no regret and I’ll continue to speak and voice my views. I’ll continue to defend this country.”
