According to Musa, even though he and other Nigerians have forgiven what he described as Buhari's military atrocities, added that the president must listen to Nigerians as it is the practice in every democratic setting.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Pulse on Wednesday, May 18, 2016, Balarabe Musa said there are a lot of threats to workers and other civil society groups embarking on protest against fuel pump price increment.

"There are so many things Buhari did during his military regime which ought not to happen now under democracy. Particularly, the jailing of so many people that occupied public office without finding them guilty of anything," Musa said.

"I will give you an example of myself. I am not making it personal but just an example. I was kept in prison for over 20 weeks without interrogation and without any evidence that will warrant me to be detained that long."

"Not only me. Other fellow Nigerians suffered the same fate. But Buhari has been forgiven because of the nature of Nigerians who forgot and campaign for him in 2003, 2007, 2011 and 2015," Balarabe Musa added.
