Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi, Khalifah, Tijaniya Movement of Nigeria, cracked up the audience at the ongoing KadInvest, an annual event organised by the Kaduna State Investment Promotion Agency, on Saturday.

The former Emir of Kano, who was the keynote speaker at the event, said he has no political party to support in the 2023 elections.

While making his point on the state of the nation, Sanusi said Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who was at the occasion, knows his party.

He also reflected on how he was removed as governor of Nigeria’s apex bank because of speaking truth to power.

“I keep repeating, hope you remember that I lost my job at the Central Bank for this same problem. It is not about a particular party. I have no party. My party is Nigeria. This is the problem we had in 2014. Asiwaju (Tinubu) knows my party is Nigeria,” he said.

He called for transparency and credibility in the management of the nation’s resources and demanded the unbundling of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited.

Sanusi said NNPC is not a cash cow but should be run as an independent enterprise with high-level accountability.

He also expressed doubt with the statistics of NNPC on daily consumption of fuel, saying, “NNPC tells us officially that we are consuming 66 million litres per day…We are consuming more than Indonesia, Pakistan, Egypt, Cote d’Ivoire and others.

“In 2019 officially, we were importing 40 million litres per day. In 2022, officially, we are importing 66 million per day. In three years, we have increased our petrol consumption by 50%. Please tell me, is it the population? Is it the number of cars? Just ask yourself if it makes sense that in three years you increase your consumption of petrol by 50%.”
