Buhari, Jonathan birds of same feather, says Musa

Buhari, Jonathan birds of same feather, says Musa

Former Governor of old Kaduna state, Balarabe Musa said there is no difference between President Muhammadu Buhari and his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan in the governance of Nigeria.

Musa who holds the record of being the first impeached governor in Nigeria’s political history, told the Vanguard newspaper that Buhari and Jonathan are birds of same feather.

“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”.

Musa according to the newspaper, accused the government of conceding its leading role in economy to the private sector as well as folding its arm while watching it determine what goes on, adding that this will lead Nigeria to nowhere.

“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’, he emphasised.
