While speaking at the Mo Ibrahim Forum in Marrakesh, Morocco, over the weekend, the Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, disclosed that Zamfara State which started the implementation of Sharia law in Nigeria, currently  has the highest poverty rate in the country.
 
The former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, said many of those who seized religion as tool of getting power were not necessarily better than the rest of the people.
 
According to him, such people should, however, be given a chance to participate in a democracy, so that they don’t go on pushing a myth that they were not given a chance.

“Give them four years, after sometime people find out that they have not improved education, they have not put food on the table, they’ve not provided healthcare, they vote them out.

“So long as you don’t give them a chance to try and succeed or fail, you have a myth of people being denied an alternative that would make their lives better.

“I think the mistake that many people make is that they simply don’t have the patience to wait four years.  We have had it in Nigeria; people came and said they were implementing Sharia. Zamfara State started Sharia in Nigeria; it has the highest rate of poverty in the country today.

“It’s a matter of time for people to realise that this is all deception, this is all politics, this is not religion; it is about politicians appropriating religion as a discourse for getting into power.”
