Former Kaduna State Governor, Musa Balarabe has dismissed the quest of the PDP to return to power in 2019, insisting they lack a moral right to seek the nation’s highest office.
What Did Balarabe Musa Say?
“I do not understand the hype about PDP returning to power. I just do not understand. Return to do what? The party that created many problems for 16 years while they were in power? No way!
“Things are not too good in the country at the moment, but I think the country would be worse if the PDP is allowed to return. We saw what they did for 16 years and they will definitely mess things up further.
“Nigerians should not trust the PDP with power. We will be disappointed. What we need in the country right now is a credible alternative that would deliver good governance and respond to our needs.”
