- Balarabe Musa has accused Obasanjo of harassing his opponents
- The former Kaduna governor said the former president has contributed to the problems in the country
- Musa said Obasanjo has done worse than he is accusing Buhari of doing
Balarabe Musa who was a former governor of Kaduna state has lashed out of former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo accusing him of laying the foundation for impunity in the country.
The Nation reports that Musa was reacting to Obasanjo’s press conference which took place in Abeokuta on Sunday, January 20.
He said Obasanjo is the cause of the problems in the country who harassed political opponents while in power.
Musa said: “Not only harass his political opponents but killed them. Obasanjo did that. Obasanjo did worse than what is happening today. In fact he continued like his predecessors in laying the foundation for the present negative state of the nation.
“I have been aware of Obasanjo’s attitude towards those in power. Since he handed power as a military president, he has been consistently acting like an agent provocateur on behalf of international imperialism, particularly now that Nigeria has no alternative.
“It can’t rely on PDP; it can’t rely on the APC. They are both the same. They are both at the root of the present negative state of the nation and most unfortunately, there is no credible, demonstrative and qualitative alternative in view from the political system. Nigeria is now facing a calamity and Obasanjo is using it, apparently to serve the interest of imperialism.
“Watch it, instead of using his relevance as former head of state to correct things, he always wait until things are bad, and he makes it even worse."
Meanwhile, the APC has replied Obasanjo over his allegations against President Buhari.
Speaking with journalists in Abuja, the spokesperson of the APC, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, said the party does not have any reason to even rig the election, adding that the allegation was a mere imagination of the former president.
Issa-Onilu also said the former president was being haunted by his past.
