Performance of Buhari failed short of expectations, worst than PDP days—Balarabe Musa

Vociferous former Governor of old Kaduna State, ex-Convener of the Conference of Nigerian Political Parties (CNPP), who currently double as the Chairman of Nigeria’s oldest political party, the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP), Alhaji Balarabe Musa has alleged that current administration under President Muhammadu Buhari has collapsed the entire enthusiasms with which Nigerians massively voted for him in 2015.

In an interview in Lagos, he decried that “The performance of this government is not as we had expected. The situation is being made worst than what we had during the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s days”.

While insisting that he had said that the performance of this administration is not impressive at all, Musa averred that “The way out is for President Muhammadu Buhari to sit up and ensure that he removes the current negative state of our nation as it is required of him and show clearly the difference between the past and the present”.

“There must be a clear difference between his administration and the past administration. Whether President Buhari plans to contest again in the next election is of no importance, what we are concerned about now is the current state of the nation and how normalcy can be restored.

On the differences in style of politics between the old era when he was active and now, former Governor of old Kaduna State noted that “The cost of leadership was more convincing then than it is now. Even the incidences of corruption, stealing and criminal waste of resources weren’t much as they are today and many people who engaged in such practices were investigated and those who were found culpable were punished”.

On the marshal plan of PRP ahead of 2019 elections, Musa revealed that “We must contest the presidential election but as I have told you, if we find out that we can’t do it alone, we will definitely find ways of working with the right political parties to do the right thing for the good of our country. We have a noble programme for Nigeria, for the security and unity of the country as well as the socio-economic development of Nigeria”.

He said PRP is not considering zoning the presidential ticket of your party to the north just as the APC and the PDP had done.

According to him, “We are not concerned with that. In fact, our concern is that the most capable Nigerian should fill that position. We are appealing to all sections of Nigeria to organise and make sure that a competent person leads the country as the President of Nigeria in 2019; it will be good for everybody whoever you are in Nigeria”.
