A former Emir of Kano, Muhammed Sanusi has said the last elections has dangerously divided Nigeria along ethnic and religious lines.
Sanusi made the remark while noting that the country has a dearth of leadership.
He lamented that the elections have also put the integrity of the judiciary and security agencies in question.

The former Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Governor noted that Nigeria’s economy was in the doldrums.
According to Sanusi: “I don’t think Nigeria has been in a place as difficult as this since the civil war. We have a challenge of nation building.
“We have a country that has been divided dangerously along ethnic and religious lines.
“We have an economy that is in the doldrums, and unfortunately, we seem to be having a dearth of leadership.”
