Elder statesman, Balarabe Musa has said that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar and his All Progressives Congress rival, President Muhammadu Buhari are not endowed sufficiently to solve Nigeria’s problems.
“This is money politics and Nigeria’s politics is very expensive. The deciding factor in Nigeria politics is money power. The other 89 candidates will contest because they have been registered and the constitution allows them, but only the PDP and APC are contesting with the hope of winning.”
“It is unfortunate for the country because none of the two candidates – President Muhammadu Buhari and Alhaji Atiku Abubakar – is relevant.”
“None of them will win and do anything to correct the negative state of the nation, but we are confronted with only these two.
“It is important to have a third alternative. Various organisations have tried to have a third alternative but it has not been possible. So, we are faced with these two.”
“The APC and PDP are the only ones with the resources to contest the presidency. All other 89 political parties do not have the resources to contest the presidency. Those of them who are contesting are just doing so for contesting sake.” he said.
