Sanusi disclosed that graduating from the late Usman’s school of progressive made him struggle to become a teacher, banker and now a radical emir.

In his words, “Most of us graduated to become radical teachers, radical professors, radical bankers and radical emirs, but we never left the essential message of Bala and it is a message that all of us should take home.

‘In life, if you are at all committed to struggle, struggle only has meaning if it is against injustice and oppression. Any other struggle is meaningless. Fighting for ethnicity, starting needless and mindless religious wars, struggle for spores of power, none of those are worth it,’ the former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria explained.

Speaking further, he said, ‘So, we are at a point in this country where we actually have to reverse this trend. For us that were in ABU in the 70’s, we were inspired or taught by the late Bala. He was an undisputed leader of Northern progressives.’
