Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido II has urged Nigerians to stop using God as an an excuse for failure. Sanusi said this while speaking at the 42nd convocation of the University of Benin, Edo State. He said;
Nigerians must stop using God as an excuse for failure, one must not attribute to God that which God has left for us. If you want to deal with a recession, there are things you have to do, which are set out in Economics. You (should) go and do them. Put in the right monetary policy; put in the right fiscal policies; put in the right structural policies and the economy will grow.
