The Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi, has said that the success story of governance in Lagos State has positioned it as the leading state in the country, adding that Nigeria needs the state more than the oil-rich Niger Delta.
Read what he wrote on his Instagram page below...
Quote
"The Lagos story is a story of what Nigeria can do with itself – transparency, consistency, regulations. That’s why today Lagos state is 30% Nigerian non-oil GDP, and Lagos can do without oil. 
This country is better off with Lagos than with the Niger Delta. Let’s not make that mistake. We should be together as a country. Every part of the country is important. But, let us not be so obsessed by a resource, because we have had the commodity driven model, and we are blind to the potentials of an alternative model. 
Lagos doesn’t need oil. What is oil anyway? It is a raw material. You don’t drink it. You need it to move your vehicles. Now, you have electricity. You need it to fill your generator. Now you have solar power, and biomass. The future of oil is not there. So, those few people who are trying to break up this country over oil, after sometime that oil will be worthless. - Muhammadu Sanusi II"

That's the honest truth. I couldn't agree more.  Without oil, Niger delta is just as useless as recharge card wey dem don load. Lagos is a typical example of modern day governance and is too diversified to depend on oil alone.

Really? Mr Sanusi. You are talking about solar power and biomass in Nigeria at this time? For Gods sake, where is Lagos diversifying to? Lagos don't even have single farm land not even for subsistence farming. And don't forget Lagos gets the largest amount from the federal allocation which keeps their economy running. And where is this money coming from? Of course it is the goose that lays the Golden egg (NIGER DELTA) that provide all the fund. Why not say Nigeria needs Kano more than the Niger Delta? instead of indirectly telling the Yoruba's how stupid they are. This therefore, is an open call for the creation of Niger Delta Republic by a Northern Ingrate.

True talk. How can you compare Sleep and death? Comparing Niger Delta to Lagos is like comparing Texas to New York, even though New York got no oil, the revenue from New York is thousands of times greater than Texas. Destroy New York, destroy the world economy and finance
