Jonathan was never qualified to rule Nigeria, Buhari must prove himself – Balarabe Musa

Balarabe MusaSecond Republic Governor of Kaduna State, Alhaji Balarabe Musa, yesterday, expressed doubt on the ability of President Muhammadu Buhari’s government to bring the endemic problem of corruption in Nigeria to its kneels.
The elder statesman said President Buhari had already lost the moral right to win the fight against corruption by sparring some corrupt persons around.
Speaking with Vanguard, Musa averred that the president had shot himself in the foot by deliberately limiting the war to Jonathan’s era, thereby making some highly corrupt persons to escape and carry on as saints.
He noted that while Buhari and Jonathan were not on the same page when it comes to leadership, Buhari must prove that he was not being surrounded by highly corrupt persons while looking out for those to be prosecuted for graft.
He said: “In the first place, Jonathan should not have been the president of Nigeria because he lacks both the competence and the experience to run the country successfully. Nigeria is not a place to train on the job because unlike in America where there is a set standard in place, it is the leader who sets the standard in Nigeria.”
While flaying former President Olusegun Obasanjo for the emergence of Jonathan on the leadership saddle of Nigeria despite his leadership shortcomings, Musa said Buhari must prove that he has what it takes to move Nigeria a notch higher.
He added: “We don’t dispute the fact that Jonathan should not have been made the president of Nigeria at the time he was brought in but the point remains that Buhari must also prove that he is the saint he has portrayed himself to be.
“But my fear is that there are so many corrupt persons around Buhari and in APC and PDP while he has deliberately decided to limit his probe of corrupt persons to only those who served under Jonathan. This is very sad and a clear evidence of selective trial of opponents.”
He said: “I will advise Buhari to convince himself that he is morally and politically capable to undertake the responsibility of cleaning up Nigeria. I will ask him to constitute a government of national unity involving all the political parties in Nigeria in the task of rebuilding Nigeria.”posted by www.Alabareport.com
