Islamic banking, solution to Nigeria’s economic woes

Muhammadu Sanusi II, the Emir of Kano, has urged the federal government to introduce Islamic banking across the country.
He said it would be another way to the economy amid the effect of the decline in oil prices.
Speaking in Kano during a workshop on non-interest capital organised on Monday, Sanusi said huge potentials abound in Islamic banking.
Pointing out that Britain, South Africa, Cote D’voire had adopted Islamic banking, he wondered why Nigeria had not taken advantage of the benefits in the system.
He commended the Osun state government for adopting non-interest free capital market, urging Kano to take the same step.
Sanusi thanked the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for organising a sensitisation programme on Islamic banking, saying the timing was accurate.
Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, emphasised the importance of an interest-free capital market in a place like Kano, an economic hub.
