After 16 years of failure, Nigeria ‘will be worse if PDP is allowed to return’— Balarabe Musa

Balarabe Musa, a former governor of Kaduna State, says given the abysmal record of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) during its 16-year reign, “the country would be worse if the PDP is allowed to return”.

Musa said this in an interview on Monday.

He blamed the PDP for the “misery and underdevelopment” the country is witnessing, advising Nigerians not to give the opposition party another chance.

“PDP lacks the moral right to ask for a return to power. A credible alternative is needed to turn things around,” he said.

“I do not understand the hype about PDP returning to power. I just do not understand. Return to do what? The party that created many problems for 16 years while they were in power? No way!

“Things are not too good in the country at the moment, but I think the country would be worse if the PDP is allowed to return. We saw what they did for 16 years and they will definitely mess things up further.

“Nigerians should not trust the PDP with power. We will be disappointed. What we need in the country right now is a credible alternative that would deliver good governance and respond to our needs.”

Musa said “money politics” is reason for the emergence of unpopular leaders.

The former governor said Nigerians must be prepared to change the narrative by voting according to their conscience in 2019 and beyond.
