Zamfara State has the “highest poverty rate despite starting Sharia Law in 1999” – Emir Sanusi speaks on Politicians Using Religion to Get into Power


Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II

Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, in an Instagram post on Monday said that the use of religion in politics is nothing short of deception.

Using, Zamfara state as an example, the Emir said that despite starting Sharia Law in 1999, the state is the one with the highest poverty rate in Nigeria.

Sanusi had earlier lambasted Governor Abdulaziz Yari for saying that the recent cerebrospinal meningitis outbreak in the country is God’s punishment for fornication. 

Sanusi said that the statement is “Islamically incorrect”.

Yari, in an interview also responded to Sanusi saying: “I stand by my words that if people do not change, God will not change for them. Therefore, I will answer the Emir perfectly and give him the Quran content of the Hadith where I belong to and where I have my fact.”
