The former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria and Emir of Kano, Mohammed Sanusi Lamido II has extolled the leadership qualities of the Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.
Addressing thousands of Muslims in Kumasi in a special end of year national Quran recitation and prayer session for the country, Sanusi Lamido II, who is also a revered Islamic cleric in the West African sub-region, praised Dr Bawumia for his good works.
Showering Bawumia with commendations, the 14th Emir of Kano, drew similarities between himself and Ghana’s Vice-President as a banker, economist and a University lecturer.
“His Excellency the Vice-President was in the Bank of Ghana at the same time I was governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria. We’ve seen from his experience, from his biography that after he left the Bank of Ghana, he went to St. Anthony’s College Oxford, and I am now at St. Anthony’s College Oxford and we seem to have a lot in common.
“I will like to join all of you in testifying that you have in him (Bawumia) a great leader with great potential. And these are the kind of leaders that we need on this continent,” he said.
Mohammed Sanusi urged all to continue to pray for Bawumia so that Allah will guide his path to offer good leadership to the people.
He also commended Bawumia for his immense support in the construction of mosque, especially the Kumasi Central Mosque.
