The political landscape of Nigeria has been hijacked by selfish politicians, so says a former governor of old Kaduna state, Alhaji Balarabe Musa.
According to him, politicians of the colonial era and first republic ruled with credible leadership, while those that served after them in the second republic to the present time came to loot the resources of the country.
The former governor who was speaking on Sunday in Offa, Kwara State, at the 19th memorial lecture of late Chief Josiah Sunday Olawoyin also said “only the alliance of progressive political opposition parties can bailout the country and make the current democracy to succeed.”
Musa whose speech was delivered by his son, Kassim Balarabe Musa, said “there is no basis of comparison between politicians of the colonial times and the first republic on one hand and the subsequent republics on the other.
“Even though the first republic governance was characterized by semi feudalism and conservatism, there was credible leadership and concern for the people,” he stated.
