'Buhari Cannot solve Nigeria's problems' - Balarabe Musa spits fire


Former governor of Kaduna state, Abubakar Balarabe Musa has said Buhari is not radical enough to tackle the Nigeria's issues.

Speaking in an interview with Vanguard, the elder statesman advised the president to begin the process of social reconstruction

Balarabe Musa, after keeping mum over the state of the nation for a while complained about Buhari's ability to solve Nigeria's problems.

He said: “The president is just like his predecessor. I ask you what is the remarkable difference between him and his predecessor. No fundamental difference.

"They all believe in the system based on self-interest first, while public interest comes after their own interest is served. He is not radical enough to deal with the situation in Nigeria."

Mr Musa accused the current government of conceding its leading role in the economy to the private sector and then letting the private sector determine what goes on, adding that this will lead the country to nowhere.


He explained: “Let us decide first what is the root cause of the problem of the economy. The root cause is the leading role of the private sector as opposed to the leading role of the state in the economy to ensure, peace, equality, justice, dignity of the human person and the progressive development of the country.

"Unless the leading role of the state is right, we cannot get things right. With our experience over the years, the only viable solution to the state of the nation is socialist reconstruction of Nigeria starting with the leading role of the state in the economy.


"At the moment, the choice of the President and the Senate President is that the leading role of the economy is that of the Private sector which is wrong. As long as we continue with this, we will get nowhere."

In conclusion, the former governor advised Buhari to immediately embark on social reconstruction of Nigeria, taking the leading role in the economy and bring about a system that places public interest first above every other interest.
