Jonathan Incapable Of Running The Affairs Of Nigeria – Balarabe Musa

Published

on

balarabe_musaVeteran politician and Second Republic Governor of Kaduna State, Alhaji Balarabe Musa, on Saturday said the future of Nigeria under the President Goodluck Jonathan-led government is gloomy.

The elder statesman noted that the way the Nigeria was being governed showed that Jonathan was incapable of running the affairs of the country. He also argued that the president’s sympathisers have come to terms with that reality.

Musa, who claimed that neither the All Progressive Congress nor the ruling Peoples Democratic Party would win the presidency in 2015, said his party, Peoples Redemption Party, PRP, though deregistered by INEC, had gone into merger with other political parties to form the next government.

The National Chairman of the Conference of Nigerian Political Parties, CNPP, made this known in a chat with journalists during a meeting with 26 States Executive Committees’ members of the PRP on Saturday in Kaduna.

Musa, who is the national chairman of PRP, said there was no difference between the ruling PDP and the APC and, therefore, urged Nigerians to reject both parties, as none of them was credible enough to take Nigerians to the Promised Land.

He said, “We are not in support of Buhari or Jonathan because we are not in the APC or the PDP; we are neutral; we belong to a credible alternative.

“We are better alternative to both Jonathan and Buhari, and fundamentally, there is a distinct difference between the alliance, APC and PDP.

“Nigerians should reject APC and PDP because they brought about the negative states of the nation”.
