I am trying to bridge the gap between the backward North and the Southern parts of the nation- Emir of Kano says

The monarch said this in a new IG post.
Read below.
“I choose to fight for the progress of
Nigerians and suggest solutions to
their problems. It’s my duty to speak
the truth about the ill-effects of
conservative Muslims who are
harming Islam rather than helping it.
I condemned their refusal to expand
their knowledge outside their own
religion and failure to realise that
knowledge is power. I also correctly
concluded denying the right to pursue
scientific and technological
knowledge and restricting people to
Islamic knowledge is the best means
of ensuring that Muslims in Northern
Nigeria will be remain economically
backward. I’m upset at the legion of
beggars on the streets and is trying
to bridge the gap between the
backward North and the Southern
parts of the nation.
I still believe that conservative
Muslims are still stuck in the 13th
Century and their claim that children
need no other knowledge than
Islamic studies flies in the face of
reality. All the poverty, under-
development and immense suffering
in the North are a result of
uneducated masses refusing to learn
work or a trade. The majority of
technicians in Kano are from the
South while untrained indigenes beg.
How does that make sense? Why is it
that conservative Muslims who claim
to be against scientific progress enter
aeroplanes and fly to perform the
Hajj in Mecca rather than using
camels to cross the desert! Why do
they watch sermons beamed by TV
live from Mecca and read the Holy
Quaran on their laptops yet profess
to abhor modern technology? I’d like
to point out that there is no harm in
copying from the West if it brings
succour to the masses of poverty
stricken Muslims in Northern Nigeria.
After all Saudi Arabia, the “home” of
Islam is known for its highly-rated
airline, modern hospitals, indigenous
oil industry and space program all of
which make it a world leader. In our
backward nation, we insist on
denying the truth. Unless Northern
political leaders like Governor Yari
pay attention to me, there will never
be a day when anywhere in the North
will be like the modern Muslim cities
of Kuala Lumpar, Istanbul, Jakarta,
Lahore, Greater Cairo, Dacca,
Karachi, Dubai, Riyadh or
