In reaction to the reports linking him to the 2023 Presidency, a former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Muhammadu Sanusi, has cleared the air over his alleged interest in the forthcoming elections.
Sanusi, a former Emir of Kano, dismissed the rumour that he is nursing a presidential ambition. The dethroned Emir, who clarified the speculations at the reception in his honour to mark his 60th birthday in Abuja, said he does not have interest in vying for the Presidency.
EveryEvery.ng gathered that the former CBN governor further revealed the plan to pursue his PhD in Law programme in the University of London, United Kingdom and not interested in the 2023 Presidency.
You will recall that Sanusi had urged the privileged Nigerians to develop ideas to help the less privileged in society, given the country’s economic situation.
The dethroned Emir had earlier bagged a new appointment as the Vice-Chairman of the Kaduna Investment Promotion Agency, KADIPA.
Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai inaugurated the Board of KADIPA, while Sanusi attended the inauguration and joined other members in a virtual meeting of the Board.
El-Rufai charged the citizens to ensure Kaduna State becomes the top investment destination in Nigeria by improving its Ease of Doing Business ranking.
The governor disclosed that KADIPA had been a significant and successful vehicle in the state’s investment drive, helping since 2015 to attract over$ 2.1bn in actual and pledged investments.
El Rufai also pointed out that KADIPA will be competing not just with all emerging markets, adding that the agency should not rest on its oars in its drive to attract businesses to Kaduna state (read more here).
