We don’t need 36 state governors and their deputy – Sanusi calls for national restructuring

Emir of Kano, Sanusi Muhammad II, has called for the restructuring of Nigerians system of governance, arguing that Nigeria cannot afford 36 state governors and deputy governors in the face of this economic hardship.


Sanusi said this while speaking at the inaugural lecture and launching of a N250 million endowment fund for the Oba Sikiru Adetona Professorial Chair in Governance, Department of Political Science, Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago-Iwoye, Ogun State, yesterday March 10th.

“If you really reflect on the problems of this country, it seems to turn common sense on its head. You sometimes wonder if anyone needs to tell any group of people that if you are a poor country, you do not need 36 governors, 36 deputy governors, with members of house of assembly, commissioners and advisers, Special assistants, a president, a vice president, 36 ministers, special advisers, federal legislature and so on. Simple arithmetic will tell you that if you have that structure, you are first of all doomed to spending 80 or 90 per cent of everything you earn maintaining public officers.

It is really common sense but it seems to be a problem for us to understand it,” he added.
