Sanusi Lamido Sanusi Quotes

Compilations of 8 Sanusi Lamido Sanusi quotes.

Sanusi Lamido Sanusi was born in Kano in 1961 into the royal family as the grandson of Muhammadu Sanusi I. He succeeded his great-uncle Ado Bayero to the throne on 8 June 2014, and spent most of his reign advocating for cultural reform in Northern Nigeria, until his dethronement on 9 March 2020 by the state government.

Sanusi was an Islamic intellectual, academic, political economist, and banker before his ascension. From 2009 to 2014, he was the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, bringing in banking reforms until his suspension after exposing the $20 billion oil scandal.

Sanusi Lamido Sanusi Quotes

  1. “Nigeria is not an oil rich country. We are an oil producing country.”

2. “The state is captive to vested interests.”

 3. “If a society does not criminalise adultery, it has no business criminalising polygamy.”

4. “Do not say that government money had been stolen. Name the thief. We named human beings—the management that stole the money in the name of borrowing, the gamblers that took depositors funds to speculate on the stock market and manipulate share prices, the billionaires and captains of industry whose wealth actually was money belonging to the poor which they ‘borrowed’ and refused to pay back”

5. “We have a youth bulge and youth unemployment. We have a drug problem. And it’s all come from, I think, a collapse of family values.”

Sanusi Lamido Sanusi quotes

6. “I spent my life as a successful banker. I taught economics at the university. I worked at an investment bank. I was chief risk officer in the two largest banks in the country. I was the CEO of the oldest and largest commercial bank in Nigeria, First Bank. I was the best central bank governor four years out of five. Why would I feel guilty about inheriting privilege? I have earned my stars in every competitive environment.” With a CV like that, God could hardly have said no.”

7. “It’s a total misconception of Islamic law for people to think that you have the right to marry more than one wife and not be able to maintain them. It’s not a blank cheque. You can’t just produce children and leave them on the streets begging and out of school.”

8. “The task of the intellectual is not one of blending into the opaque consciousness of the tumultuous mob around him, his voice drowned in a cacophony of misdirected protests. His task is to remind them of who they are and what they ought to be. Our values are not to be taken from conduct of our adversaries but from the great heritage of our people.”

My favorite Sanusi Lamido Sanusi Quotes are, “The state is captive to vested interests.” and “If a society does not criminalise adultery, it has no business criminalising polygamy.”
