Emir of Kano, Lamido Sanusi II, was speaking during a special session at the 15th Joint Planning Board and National Council on Development Planning today in Abuja.
"There is nothing we are facing today that we did not know would happen. We made mistakes, many of them deliberate. We ignored every single warning.
"We should not continue to blame the previous administration, as we have also made some mistakes in the current administration.
"We must retrace our steps; otherwise we may fall into the same trap we fell the last time when the government was always right.
"The bottom line is that if your policy is wrong, it is you that must change."
