Former Central Bank of Nigeria Governor and Emir of Kano, Lamido Sanusi, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to seek advice from credible experts within and outside government to proffer solutions to the economic crisis in the country.
Sanusi, who spoke during the week at the Government House in Kano, asked the President to engage forward thinking individuals to bail the country from the current recession.
The monarch said Nigerians, irrespective of religious affiliations and political inclinations, should intensify prayers for the economic growth of the country.
Sanusi’s advice came on the heels of a comment by Catholic Bishop, Reverend Hassan Kukah, who asked Mr President to stop blaming Nigeria’s woes on past administrations and get to work to get the economy back on track.
Meanwhile, the Nigeria Governors Forum has expressed support for President Buhari’s economic plan to tackle the current economic recession.
This was part of resolutions reached at the extraordinary meeting of the NGF held at the old Banquet Hall of the State House, Abuja.
Addressing correspondents after the meeting, NGF Chairman and Zamfara state governor Abdulaziz Yari said, “The governors resolved with a commitment to encourage the Federal Government to continue along the line to bring the country out of recession.”
