From Femi Oyelola, Kaduna

The Emir of kano Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi has said Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai is a nationalist who don’t have any sense of inadequacy rather treat everyone on merit.
He stated this during the 60th birthday of the Governor held in Kaduna yesterday.
According to him, “with people like El Rufai you don’t need to rise on being from Kaduna State or being from the North or being a Muslim to get a job, you come with your credentials, you go with your competence, you can compete with any Nigerian from anywhere.”
The royal father, however, said while he wishes El Rufai happy birthday, he is of the view that he is not happy because nobody who is a leader in the Northern Nigeria today can afford to be happy.
“You cannot be happy about 87 per cent of poverty in Nigeria being in the north. You can’t be happy with millions of Northern children out of school.
“You can’t be happy with nine states in the North contributing almost 50 per cent of the entire malnutrition burden in the country. You can’t be happy with the drug problem, you can’t be happy with the Boko Haram problem. You can’t be happy with political thuggery. You can’t be happy with all the issues; the “Almajiri problem that we have.
“So, we wish Nasir a happy birthday, but we do not want him to be happy as a leader. Because you are happy when you think you have reached a state of delivering and taking your people to where you want them to be,” he said.
