President Muhammadu Buhari has described the former civilian governor of the old Kaduna State, Balarabe Musa, as a “man of unassailable integrity and untainted record of public service.”
According to the President, “Balarabe Musa is one of Nigeria’s brightest stars of integrity and sterling principles”, adding that, “the octogenarian has lived to his reputation by avoiding any conduct associated with corruption and dishonour.”
President Buhari recalled that his close association with Mr. Musa in the Conference of Nigerian Political Parties (CNPP) had enabled him “to appreciate the radical politician’s patriotism and his commitment to build strong opposition in the country in order to deepen democracy.”
He also praised Mr. Musa’s independent-mindedness, stressing that the principled politician can criticise even his friends, associates and allies when it comes to politics.
Buhari said politics is public service and not an opportunity to amass wealth overnight at the expense of the ordinary people or the voters.
