I am trying to bridge the gap between the backward North and the Southern parts of the nation- Emir of Kano says

The monarch said this in a new IG post. Read below.
"I choose to fight for the progress of Nigerians and suggest solutions to their problems. It's my duty to speak the truth about the ill-effects of conservative Muslims who are harming Islam rather than helping it.
I condemned their refusal to expand their knowledge outside their own religion and failure to realise that knowledge is power. I also correctly concluded denying the right to pursue scientific and technological knowledge and restricting people to Islamic knowledge is the best means of ensuring that Muslims in Northern Nigeria will be remain economically backward. I'm upset at the legion of beggars on the streets and is trying to bridge the gap between the backward North and the Southern parts of the nation.
I still believe that conservative Muslims are still stuck in the 13th Century and their claim that children need no other knowledge than Islamic studies flies in the face of reality. All the poverty, under-development and immense suffering in the North are a result of uneducated masses refusing to learn work or a trade. The majority of technicians in Kano are from the South while untrained indigenes beg. How does that make sense? Why is it that conservative Muslims who claim to be against scientific progress enter aeroplanes and fly to perform the Hajj in Mecca rather than using camels to cross the desert! Why do they watch sermons beamed by TV live from Mecca and read the Holy Quaran on their laptops yet profess to abhor modern technology? I'd like to point out that there is no harm in copying from the West if it brings succour to the masses of poverty stricken Muslims in Northern Nigeria.
After all Saudi Arabia, the "home" of Islam is known for its highly-rated airline, modern hospitals, indigenous oil industry and space program all of which make it a world leader. In our backward nation, we insist on denying the truth. Unless Northern political leaders like Governor Yari pay attention to me, there will never be a day when anywhere in the North will be like the modern Muslim cities of Kuala Lumpar, Istanbul, Jakarta, Lahore, Greater Cairo, Dacca, Karachi, Dubai, Riyadh or Faisalabad".

Sometimes you say the truth,but you go astray at times in the process of trying to express your views about ISLAM." Seek knowledge from the cradle to the grave" The holy prophet (SAW)said.What does Sanusi trying to say by using the phrase "conservative Muslims".There is nothing like conservative Muslim,please do not bring wrong use of English words to describe Muslims, like the enemies of Islam.There is nothing like conservative Muslims.A Muslim most be submissive in totality to will of ALLAH.His messages are very clear.All Muslims are encouraged to seek knowledge.So what are you talking about?Say the Northerners are ignorant of what they do.In Islam there is no room for ignorance.The people from the North indulge in begging as a profession,but in ISLAM, begging as a profession is totally prohibited.There is no room for professional begging.Ask them does ISLAM encourage professional begging,obviously they would say NO.So if they say NO ,ask them why a large population of the Northern people indulge in begging if ISLAM does not permit begging?Obviously they do things to satisfy themselves,not in compliance with ISLAM.
A MUSLIM IS A MUSLIM THERE IS NOTHING LIKE CONSERVATIVE MUSLIM.A MUSLIM MUST FOLLOW THE RULES AS SET BY ALLAH,AND ONE OF IT IS SEEKING KNOWLEDGE FROM THE CRADLE TO THE GRAVE.

His Royal Majesty, please, continue to preach and to teach them (Northern Nigerians) the need to wake-up from their slumber. The train has left them behind. They need education. Tell them the truth at all times. Religion does not stop the technological development. Why do they use ordinary GSM Telephone? Northern leaders have failed their subjects because, they want the poor masses to remain subservient to their political wills. Hence they do not want them to be education/enlightened. Period.

Emir may u live long for telling ur people the truth. Northerners should stop hiding under the umbrella of religion on every issue and start embracing development,their women should be allowed to be educated and contribute meaningfully to the economic development of our country.

This guy speaks so much sense. So much. What's more, he'll find it easier to get through to them than others.

Thank you for your repentant heart. Will they listen is the question? The North is pulling Nigeria back. That's why we say restructure Nigeria or break it.

Please emir stop tiring Nigeria apart you sound as if the north is a different country altogether so that really means you guys don't believe in One Nigeria, because if you should go to all those nations you mentioned not one state is under developed, so Wen this your dream North happens, what then happens to the south, east, and west or you forgot so quickly that Nigeria is made of them four and may I ask whose wealthy will be use to fund this backward north, Ofcourse the Niger delta oil money but I did not hear you for ones mention them in your advance future development instead you tag them as if the are already so developed if so why are your kids not schooling in the Niger delta region or vacation there as well, should I tell you why because for the goose that lay the golden egg they are so under developed why you and you Hausa brothers keep stealing Nigeria money a curse will always be on the north .

So true, jst hope dey change n make Nigeria a beta place

If the oligarchs in the north will allow you achieve this alone, good. But there's another serious problem with the north. The north is Nigeria's headquarter of corruption. Northerners have looted this country and their states more than any other people

The northern challenge has been with us since independence. However, you eloquently restated the obvious. The bigger question is: what are you going to do about solving it? How do you plan to implement lasting changes in order to turn the tide around, as it were? What initiatives/programs/policies have you and your team put in motion to start the ball rolling? Even more, what is the source of prospective funding for such massive undertaking? Would that funding be borne, by any chance, by southern Nigerians or their children through more debts that they were never signatories to? Perhaps, you can appeal to some of the northern oligarchs/billionaires who became very wealthy by stealing Naija's common patrimony over the years to reinvest their loot in tangible enterprises/areas of northern Nigeria and its peoples.

As long as: 1) they don't believe in Western Educational Modern Phenomenon (according to Quranic injunctions); 2) They marry maximum of 4 (four) wives (ie over-population); 3) They don't believe in accommodating non-adherents of their sadistic religion; 4) They don't believe in abhorrence of nomadic life - you cannot go any far! It will surely end in the media hypography. (Nwada Linda, pls publish my take, which is nothing but the true). Bless you real good IJN!
