Every section of the country had at one time tasted power, says Emir Sanusi

Speaking during the 50th anniversary, commemoration of the death of the Sardauna  in Kaduna, The Emir of Kano and former governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, revealed that the signs that culminated into the 1966 military putsch that claimed the life of the Premier of Northern Nigeria, and other national leaders in the country at that time are visible today.
Delivering his goodwill message, Sanusi said, “Nigerians have moved over the history of 1966 coup, but today history is being repeated. Though, it is important we keep history, we must not allow history to repeat itself.”
The Emir, who was apparently referring to the Biafran agitators, called on Nigerians who are allegedly fanning the embers of violence and disunity to desist, saying “people must not add salt to injury.”
The Emir insisted that every section of the country had at one time tasted power and as well produced bad or good leader, “and therefore we must move on as one country because we must not fail to learn from the past.
“We cannot get back to religious and ethnic divides; we are calling for tolerance, peace, but we will not be allowed to be disrespected.”
