Stop Castigating Buhari Over Economic Challenges – Emir of Katsina

The Emir of Katsina, Dr. Abdul-Mummuni Kabir, has urged
people to stop castigating President Muhammad Buhari
over the economic challenges facing the country.
Kabir made the call during inauguration of a book on
family lineage of late chief Imam of Kano residing in
Katsina, Muhammad Zaharaddeen, on Saturday in Katsina.
“It has come to our knowledge that some disgruntled
people are castigating President Buhari and blaming the
economic problems of the country on him.
“The President cannot solve the economic blunder
committed in 16 years within one year.
“President Buhari needs some time to marshal plans that
will solve the several challenges facing the country”, he
Kabir advised Nigerians to rally round and support Buhari
to enable him to discharge his duties for the betterment of
the people.
“The President needs the support and prayers of his
brothers and sisters from the North to overcome the
several problems facing the North and the country.”
The emir commended the author of the book for writing the
book on his family lineage that migrated to Katsina in 1894
during Hausa/Fulani civil wars.
He said the book will serve as a reference material for
history students in tertiary institutions in the state.
Earlier, Gov. Aminu Masari urged citizens to emulate the
late chief imam’s family by promoting both western and
islamic education.
“This prominent family has produced lawyers, doctors,
university professors, administrators and politicians.’’
Masari said the family had some prominent politicians like
Secretary to the Government of Katsina State, Alhaji
Mustapha Inuwa and Sen. Hadi Sirike, a serving minister in
Buhari’s Administration.
NAN reports that the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammad
Sanusi, who was the chief launcher of the book, donoted
N1 million. Over N5 million was realized at the launch.
The book is written by retired Aminu Abdullahi, formerly of
BBC Hausa Service.
