Emir Sanusi vows to continue call for societal change

The Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido, on Thursday, said he would never be discouraged as an advocate of change in the society.

The emir made the proclamation at his emirate council in Kano when Mohammed Fall, new Country Representative of United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund, UNICEF, paid him a courtesy visit to solicit his support for girl-child education.
Mr. Sanusi acknowledged that change was always difficult in any society globally, not only in Nigeria.
“Change is always difficult in any society; not only in Kano or in Nigeria but the world at large. Once, you want to bring change especially that, which has to do with the old tradition, it always meets with resistance from the society.”
“I’m very aware of this, but that will never discourage me in my drive towards change. I know that there are a lot of people in the society that really understand what I’m driving at.
“I’m therefore calling on everybody; the Ulama, the contractors, the students, the youth leaders, Muslims, especially you the UNICEF, to come and rally round me as I am ready to pursue this agenda to a logical conclusion. I know I will succeed because the change is meant for the betterment of the society.’’
According to Punch Newspaper, the emir also stressed on girl-child education, saying almost every day, he receives different categories of complaints about child abuse in his palace, adding that the society had destroyed so many kids.
The monarch, however, criticised parents for not taking good care of their children adding that if parents were there for their kids, child abuse would be reduced.
Mr. Sanusi pledge that the emirate council would give UNICEF the necessary support, especially in the area of improving girl-child education, not only in Kano State but in the North generally.
Mr. Fall in his remarks, solicited the support of the emir in addressing issues relating to child protection, survival and development in the country.
“I am here to assure you of my readiness to work with you to continue expanding what you have been doing in favour of children, not only in northern Nigeria but the country at large,” he added.
