Former Central Bank of Nigeria Governor, Mallam Muhammed Sanusi has said he has no interest in seeking elective position in the country, even in the forthcoming 2023 general election.

Revealing his next course of action, the former Emir of Kano said he will be proceeding to the Oxfprd University in the United Kingdom next month where he will function as a visiting fellow at the university’s African Studies Department.

Speaking in an interview with Arise TV, Sanusi said, “People have been talking to me about politics when I was in the CBN. I have never had an interest in partisan politics.”

On his political ambition, he said, “The nature of my family is that we consider ourselves the leaders of the poorer people and you know politics can be very divisive.

“All I can say is that this not an objective for me.”

He described service to the nation as something that does not just come through politics and recounted how he “started off as an academic and after just two years, I completed my masters and went into banking for some reasons. I have been a banker, a regulator, an emir.

“I can’t see the future, so I will take life as it goes.

“I am in no hurry. I see my life as a life of service but I just don’t think that public service is limited to elected office, and any opportunity I have to serve, I will take as long as it is a role I think I am capable of delivering. But I have no immediate plans to go into politics.”

He expressed his desire to publish three books, one of which will be ‘Sharia Society and Identity’.

Central Bank’s response to global financial crisis and impact of certain interpretations of Muslim family law and cultural practices on the underdevelopment of Northern Nigeria will form the basis for the second and third book respectively.
