– Musa said that Obasanjo messed up the country during his regime and cannot pull away political weight anymore
A former governor of Kaduna state, Balarabe Musa, on Thursday, October 11, said former president Olusegun Obasanjo’s endorsement of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar for the 2019 presidential election will amount to nothing, since the ex-head of state is no longer among the bigwig in Nigeria’s political space, The Independent reports.
In a conversation with newsmen, Musa stated that it is unfortunate that Atiku who wants to take over the presidency in 2019 is already associating himself with persons like Obasanjo who allegedly messed up things in the country during his regime.
Meanwhile, mixed reactions have trailed ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo’s endorsement of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the 2019 general elections, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
Nigerians from all walks of life have reacted to the development shortly after the endorsement of the former vice president.
