The Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, has called on Federal Government ‎to seek the advice of economic experts in tackling the current economic crisis in the country.

Mr. Sanusi gave the advice on Wednesday during the traditional Sallah Durbar (Hawan Nasarawa) at the Government House, Kano.‎

He said consulting the experts would help in enunciating ‎proper solution to the crisis and reduce the hardship people were currently facing in the country.‎

The emir, a former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, urged wealthy Nigerians to support the less-privileged in the society in order to alleviate their sufferings.‎

‎He added that Nigerians, irrespective of religious beliefs and political inclinations, should continue to pray for economic growth and development of the country.‎

He also urged the people of Kano to remain law-abiding and be their brother’s keeper irrespective of religion or ethnic background.‎

Mr. Sanusi appealed to the state government to help the people to acquire skills‎ that would make them self-reliant.‎

In his remarks, acting governor of the state, Prof. Hafiz Abubakar, said that paying salary of workers was not a privilege but an ‎obligation, which the state had continued to meet.

He pointed out that the economic crunch had made it difficult for no fewer than 28 states out of the 36 in the country to pay workers’ salary.‎

‎Mr. Abubakar said the state government was spending N62 million weekly for the feeding ‎of boarding school students across the state.‎

He called on the people to continue to pray for peace, unity and progress in the country.
