Be careful, cautious over Jega’s move to join PRP, Balarabe Musa warns party members



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

The immediate past national chairman of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) Alhaji Balarabe Musa has warned members of the party to be careful and cautious over the coming on board of former chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Professor Attairu Jega.

The one-time former governor of old Kaduna State who is now the chairman, board of trustee of the party, revealed that much while fielding questions from members of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) Kaduna state council on Monday.

According to the elder statesman, his position was premised on the fact that it was during Jega’s time as INEC boss that the party was deregistered before it was re-registered on court orders.

Though he said that Jega’s decision to join the party was a welcome development, Balarabe Musa said he would rather meet with the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party to take a holistic view of the whole matter on the new entrant into the party.

The comments of the Northern leader comes after Jega was announced as the Chairman of the SWOT analysis committee of the PRP whose mandate was to critically examine the strength, weaknesses, opportunities as well as threats to the party.
