My Biggest Hero Is My Grandfather - Emir Of Kano, Sanusi Lamido
My biggest Hero is my grandfather. If there's one person that has been a constant in my life it's been him. Now, my father had one of the greatest influences in me. I remember one thing my father said to me; When I was 16 or 17, he said; "You know, you can divert a hundred things a young man wants to be, but all you need is to look at two to three things and you'll be amazed at how by holding unto one or two simple rules, you'll define yourself". I think later in life I found that one thing to define myself, which is"Speak Truth to Power". If you look at my entire life all the problems I've had, have had to do with that. Whether it's National Assembly's 25% or Jonathan's $20Billion or debates I had within the banking system. If you take a look at my articles. It's always just telling myself that; "Look! you know what? No matter what the cost is, if this is the truth I'm going to say it." and that's now what I'm known for and that's how I hope to be remembered even after my death. You know, nothing else, just somebody who speaks the truth.
