The deposed Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, on Tuesday, decried the effect of government’s wrong economic policies on Nigerians.
He said wrong economic policies had negatively impacted on the livelihood of Nigerians and turned many multi-millionaires to paupers overnight.
Sanusi, who stated this while delivering a keynote address at the 5th Kaduna Investments Summit, urged governments at all levels to consider the impact of their economic decisions on Nigerians.
He said: “One of the things the government needs to do is to understand the impact of wrong economic decisions or address economic occurrences on human beings and individuals. It affects us in direct and personal ways. Most people are not looking at human beings. We should not just walk away when inflation rises.
“For those of us who have grown up – in my generation, those who grew up in the oil period – we suffered I think about three occasions now with this boom and bust. We have seen highs and lows, friends who are multimillionaire became paupers.
