Former Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido has said he will not be leveraging on where candidates came from before casting his vote for the next president of Nigeria.

Sanusi said he would rather cast his vote for any presidential candidate who has shown himself to be capable of delivering on his promises.

“I don’t care about the debate on whether the next President should come from the South or North, give me a President from any part of the country who can deliver and I’ll vote for him because he’s not going to take presidency to his hometown even if he’s inclined to do that,” Sanusi said this while speaking on Arise Tv.

He however indicated that most of the names being circulated as potential candidates for the 2023 Presidency do not align with excellence. He said the personalities bearing them do not have the capacity to fix Nigeria.

“Instead of governors saying we want a president from the South let them bring the candidate to let us look at him, what is his age, condition of health, records and capacity. This applies to the Northerners too, let us access your candidates.

“From all the names that are being speculated as the next president of Nigeria, at least most of them if they come up finally in 2023, we are going to end up with people who do not have the ability to fix this problem of the nation,” Sanusi told Arise Tv.

He further implored Nigerians to explore the intellectual approach while choosing their leaders in 2023. This is because politicians only know how to take them for a ride.

Sanusi while speaking recommended that the records of the proposed candidates should be duly assessed, including their medical challenges. All these should be prioritized while choosing the next president.

“The greatest weakness as a Nigerian is that we do not apply critical approach when choosing leaders and these politicians just take us for a ride.

“If people suffer under a government they’re suffering because of incompetent government not because he’s from a particular region.


“If the Naira is being devalued does it affect only Southerners? As Nigerians, these are not the problems we should be worried about.

“These are the questions we need to ask ourselves and stop politicians to keep playing us,” the former Emir said.
