Nigerians should not make the mistake of reelecting Buhari in 2019, we may not recover from the disaster — Balarabe


Alhaji Balarabe Musa, a former governor of old Kaduna State, has said that Nigerians should expect the worst if the APC government remains in power beyond 2019.

The elder statesman, in an interview with Saturday Vanguard, said that the only thing that is needed to bring about real change in Nigeria is revolution. 

Musa stated this while reacting to a question on whether he has seen light at the end of the tunnel in 2019. 

His words, "Sincerely, I don’t foresee any light! The only bright light I foresee come 2019 is if we can bring about a constitutional change through the National Assembly. But, unfortunately, the National Assembly and the Presidency have been at each other’s throats since the beginning of this government in 2015. 

"So you can’t expect a good constitutional change when the executive and the legislative have never agreed. The latest development is that the government is staging a strategic attack on the National Assembly by humiliating the Senate President and the National Assembly is retaliating by threatening to impeach President Buhari. In a situation like this, how do you expect a peaceful constitutional change to happen? It won’t happen! In fact, we should expect the worst. 

"A revolution, that is a change brought about by the power of the masses, a situation whereby citizens take over the affairs of the state themselves.

"It has happened in some parts of the world where the executive and legislative arms of government were at loggerheads and the problem was affecting good governance. There is no way the case of Nigeria will be different from those countries that experienced it.

"It can happen in Nigeria. Europe faced what we are facing now and they solved theirs through constitutional revolution.
