Beware of Sanusi! Lessons for all The Southerners and Middle Belt

By Emeka Mbonu

Deposed Fulani Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi II.

To all the Southerners expressing their opinions for or against Sanusi, I say take it easy. Let us siddon, buy popcorn and coke and be watching this movie. There might be more to this than meets the eye. Whether this crisis is real or not, one thing I know about the North is that they never lose sight of their true goal or do anything to sabotage it: Total domination of Nigeria is their only ambition. When it comes to that, they stand together and they plan far ahead.

Under Obasanjo, with Okonji-Iweala as Finance Minister, and Soludo as CBN Governor, Southern Banks became very powerful, financing infrastructural and economic growth not only in Southern Nigeria but even in other African countries. Nigeria was on the way to becoming a true financial and economic powerhouse for the Black World. Southern Banks were a threat to Foreign Capital (West, Middle East and Far East) and also a threat to the Northern hegemonic plans.

When Sanusi was made CBN Governor under Yar’Adua, the first thing he did was to target Southern Banks and begin to weaken them one after the other under the guise of fighting corruption. At the same time, he reopened the door for foreign as well as Islamic financial capital. He effectively conducted an economic jihad that halted the advance of the South and put the North back in a favourable strategic position.

Now 2023 is coming –

The North has realized one thing: NIGERIA IS RIPE FOR CHANGE! The Northern strategists would prefer that the modernizing of Nigeria takes place under a Northerner than under a Southerner. So they have to present a viable Northern candidate for that. This is where Sanusi comes into the picture.

If you study Sanusi’s actions, you will see that he is deeply pro-North and anti-South in a very intelligent progressive way. Sanusi understands what it takes to make the North overtake and dominate the South IN EVERY WAY in a modern world.

But when you hear him talk you will think he is a detribalised pan-Nigerian government critic, which is why so many Southerners foolishly support him.

The North understand that Sanusi would be more valuable to them as the President of Nigeria than as the Emir of Kano. He would not only help the North to overtake the South systemically and on all possible levels. He would also modernize Nigeria so that the credit for the modernization of Nigeria will go to a Northerner. The Northern future-planners would rather have Sanusi in a position to become the President of Nigeria.

Exactly my own thinking. Any southerner that does not see this wicked Islamic jihadist being re-positioned is dreaming. Sanusi destroyed southern banks, drove away their CEOs and jailed some. Erastus Akingbola built Intercontinental Bank from the scratch and Sanusi took it from him while he ran for his life. Sanusi was a terror working with his people in the EFCC. The story had it that Saraki wanted Akingbola to buy Societe Generale Bank which he looted into a coma and he refused. Saraki then approached Sanusi who was his classmate at Kings College, Lagos to use his position as The CBN Governor to destroy Intercontinental Bank and Akingbola. Sanusi then looked for a reason to do the job.

That was how he came up with the hoax audit report which he used to destroy Southern banks. Those banks were not in distress at all. Access Bank was dying under the management of Sanusi’s friend. Intercontinental Bank was then handed over to him for survival. Access Bank used Intercontinental Bank money to buy Intercontinental. Cecilia Ibru who built Oceanic Bank was dispossessed and jailed. Sanusi appointed his friends who ran down their banks to be the new managers of the Southern banks he claimed were distressed. Good logic does not permit handing over distressed banks to former bad managers if not for an agenda.

Enter Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, the new master and political bride of the darker, dumber and duller elements in the South West, arriving in Lagos. I urge these servile elements to take note of the words of Mr. Akin Ajose-Adeogun, who in my view is Nigeria's greatest historian. He wrote: "Yoruba, in their usual superficial way of thinking, are enamoured of supposedly radical, maverick Northerners. Superficial because radical and conservative Northerners all worship at the same altar of Northern hegemony. We are a particularly foolish people. If you doubt that I urge you to consider the following:"…The main ideological opposition came from Alhaji Aminu Kano's Northern Elements Progressive Union. Aminu Kano is far from being a demagogue….he was of the same stock and cultural background as the leaders of the NPC. He differed from the Sardauna in his personality and ideas. He is a nervous, cerebral man – by nature a reformer….His party took its stand on the need for better planning and greater democracy….Predictably, when the NPC fell from power in the military coup, Aminu Kano became one of the group of political spokesmen who represented the North with little distinction of party…"- (Extract from 'NIGERIA' by Walter Schwarz (London: Pall Mall Press, 1968), p. 241-242). Well, there you have it! When push came to shove, he, unlike Awolowo, became a Northern partisan (taking part in organising the massacres of the Igbo in the North in September-October 1966, according to eyewitness testimonies accepted by the Justice GCM Onyiuke Commission of Inquiry into the Northern Disturbances) instead of a nationalist statesman seeking to establish peace, justice and fair play for all". (Akin Ajose-Adeogun)Let all those sons of the South West that are fawning over Sanusi and that have declared him as their next presidential Messiah bear Mr. Ajose Adeogun's words in mind. First it was Buhari and now it is Sanusi: abi they done swear for una?(Femi Fani-Kayode)

You may not have heard that Tony Elumelu refused to employ Sanusi at UBA before First Bank employed him. He rose in First Bank to MD because of the FGN’s controlling share. From there he became the CBN Governor. He didn’t forget or forgive Tony. That was why he came up with the 7yrs maximum term for Bank CEOs to get back at Tony. We have a wicked Islamic jihadist being let loose. Remember El Rufai saying that Fulanis neither forgive nor forget. Sanusi is a typical Fulani.

Sanusi introduced the law that Bank CEOs cannot stay beyond 7yrs. If they can’t run their businesses for more than 7yrs, why are people like Dangote running theirs beyond 7yrs? He destroyed Southern banks and introduced Islamic banking because Southern banks were strengthening southern Christian economy. Where in the world do you run a business without making a profit or charging interest? Buhari is borrowing from the international finance community and will pay interest but will use Southern resources to run an interest-free Islamic bank. The South must wake up before it’s too late.

The North hates The South in every aspect and will do everything to pull them down, but Southern leaders are blind and not thinking. The North is out to frustrate and slow down The South by all means. Sanusi is an intelligent man but an economic Boko Haram against The South. The same way Buhari cancelled the Lagos State metro line to slow down Southwest development was how Sanusi used his powers at The CBN to destroy Southern economy. He is still coming. Only splitting the country will save The South. The North has been marketing Sanusi with his eloquent speeches but with a sinister agenda. Southerners seem to be carried away by his eloquent speeches but he is a very dangerous man. We warned Southerners against Buhari but they didn’t listen. Another intelligent Buhari whom I will call Ahithophel is coming and they will still fall prey.

24hrs after his dramatic dethronement, El Rufai his fellow jihadist has offered him The VP of Kaduna State investment project. Sanusi has not fallen, he is rising. The South is thoughtless in many ramifications. The same educated Islamic jihadist who beheaded Gideon Akaluka also beheaded the Southern economy when he had the opportunity. The North sees him as their hatchet man. They are coming.
