Balarabe had said the economy is still in a very bad state and not close to getting better as the APC promised during the campaigns.
In a recent interview with Vanguard Newspaper, he said, "The economy is still in a very bad state and not close to getting better as the APC promised during the campaigns."
Continuing, he said, 'And to make matters worse, the government wants to borrow to fund the 2016 budget. This administration seems to have forgotten what we went through concerning our past debt burden.'
On the fight against corruption, Balarabe Musa said, 'It is obvious that this government is targeting select individuals who served in Jonathan’s administration. We are all aware that this country was wrecked by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and those now in the All Progressives Congress, APC.
'We also know that 70% of the leaders in the APC were in the PDP before they jumped ship, and that they participated in bringing down this economy, destroying the name of the PDP in the process. If really you are fighting corruption, you must not look at only one of the two sets of politicians.
'As things stand presently, record shows that only those who served under the PDP administration of former President Jonathan are being targeted in the anti-corruption war. However, corruption has been going on in Nigeria ever since the military seized power in 1966.
'Government should go back to 1966. to effectively fight this war That is not too long ago. The records are there. The anti-corruption war should not target President Jonathan’s administration alone!' he said.
