Nobody Can Be Nigeria’s President Except He Is A Thief Or Backed By Thieves
Former governor of Kaduna State, Balarabe Musa, has stated that 99 percent of Nigerian leaders are thieves. he made this statement in a video clip recorded while hosting presidential aspirant and Sahara Reporter publisher, Omoyele Sowore.
According to reports gathered by NIGERIA NEWS, Balarabe stated that anyone that is not a thief or backed by thieves cannot attain the position of the President of Nigeria. He said that this is because of the enormous money needed for campaigns which he stated that no politician can legitimately raise.
The former governor also blamed the socio-economic woes of the country on the political structure.
Sowore, in the clip, stated that the purpose of his visit to the Kaduna politician is to seek his counsel on how to achieve his 2019 presidential ambition.
However, Balarabe said, “What is the quality of Nigeria’s leadership? The quality of the Nigerian leadership is a thief, [sic].
“Since the end of the Second Republic, how has it been possible in Nigeria to have a political leadership which is not made up of thieves?
“Of course, there are exceptions… I’m not saying that 100 per cent of the leadership in Nigeria is made up thieves, no, there are exceptions, but I doubt if there are up to one per cent who are clean…99 per cent are thieves.”
“For example, how can you win on the basis of the Nigerian laws and the Nigerian culture; how can you be a Nigerian President without being a thief first?
“Because it is through stealing that you can make it. Both the political parties and election in Nigeria are based on money power and this money power is equal to corruption. So, this is what you have.”
“We have a socio-economic and political system controlling all developments in the country and the political leadership produced by that system both of which are made up of people who regard self -interest first, public interest second, as opposed to public interest first and self-interest second.
“Now, how can you have order; how can you have development in a situation like this?
“I gave you the example of the President; nobody can be a President of Nigeria unless he is a thief or supported by thieves.”
“I mean, the fact is clear. You know, the reasonable estimate of the cost of campaigning for presidency in Nigeria is billions. How can you acquire these billions?”
Musa added that the situation was not so before the Second Republic, recalling that “( Shehu) Shagari became the President of Nigeria without being a thief.”
How APC hired an Israeli based firm for elections – Frank
Comrade Timi Frank, former assistant National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressive Congress (APC), applauded a press release by a U.S based agency – the Digital Forensic Research Laboratory of the Atlantic Council.
The US firm had revealed ‘Archimedes’, a political consultant firm in Isreal role in spreading fake news through the social media about PDP Presidential Candidate – Atiku Abubakar.
Facebook expelled Archimedes from the network on Thursday due to its “coordinated and deceptive behavior”. The popular network also removed dozens of accounts and thousands of facebook pages that are created to disrupt elections in Countries in Africa, with a few sparse exercise in East asia and South America.
In response to the ban, Mr Frank, through a comment on Saturday, said the world would eventually realize all the lies behind Gen. Muhammadu Buhari’s proclamation as the victor during the last election.
One of pages removed by Facebook on Thursday, as revealed by Frank, was loaded with viral false news and targeted attacks on Abubakar, Nigeria’s former vice president.
According to Timi Frank, the report reads:
“that on the overall, the misleading accounts had reached some 2.8 million users, and the pages had engaged over 5,000 followers, according to Facebook’s estimates.”
After praising Facebook, He went on further to say:
“Nigerians ought to be worried about how the APC-led government is spending huge amount of money just to discredit the rightful winner of the 2019 presidential election, Atiku Abubakar.
“I believe that if a lie goes on for 20 years, truth will definitely catchup with it one day. It will not be long before Nigerians will realise how desperate and fake President Muhammadu Buhari is in his bid to hang onto power.”
The political nationalist called on the rest of the world to acknowledge the press release of the Associated Press as well as the resulting damage accomplished in the last election to Nigeria’s second largest party and its presidential nominee.
“The AP’s report has clearly shown the level of lies sponsored against Atiku during and after the last general election. The campaign of calumny has not stopped but Nigerians should henceforth disregard malicious reports in the social media against the former VP,”
