Sanusi stated this in Kaduna at the Kaduna Investment, Kadinvest2017 where he delivered a keynote address.

Sanusi also counsel’s northern governors to invest on education, housing, create jobs than marrying dozens of wives, raising children they cannot fend and misinterpreting the Islamic religion.
He cited Bornu and Yobe states as the poorest states in Nigeria, alluding to the that the zones of northwest and northeast with the highest unproductive population in Nigeria.
The emir who applauded governor Nadir elRufai initiative in promoting investment drive meant for economic growth, also urged other northern governors to emulate the Kaduna state initiative to move out of the present situation where poverty, hungry, unemployment reign in the midst of multiple interpretations of what Islam stands for.
