Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi has said that Nigeria is suffering a leadership crisis because its leaders are selfish.

Sanusi also condemned the idea that public office is a place for people to enjoy themselves.

The Emir made the comments in Abuja on Wednesday, February 8, while presenting the award for Most Security Conscious Governor to Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi state.

“The bane of leadership in Nigeria is that the leaders are selfish; they only think of their families. Those of us who think that public office is a place to enjoy ourselves should think again,” he said according to Vanguard.

Sanusi also said that the security challenges being experienced in the country were caused by poverty and lack of education, among other things.
