Balarabe Musa during an exclusive chat with Pulse on Wednesday, May 18, 2016 said the problem of Nigeria is not for a particular section to tackle.

He said the country need someone who will summon all the problems and address them.

"I think we should stop talking about regions," Musa said. "Now that the problem is quite clear, we must look for credible leaders with integrity."

Musa said the problem of individuals suffering and the problem of development in the country should not be sectionalised.

"We should be looking for a presidential candidate who can deliver no matter where he comes from. Definitely, he is not going to govern alone. Even if you have an Igbo man as president, he will not make it only to his own Igbo," Musa added.  

The first civilian governor of Kaduna State said anyone that is elected president must take into account, the Federal Character Principles as practise in the country.

"So, the most important thing is having someone who is capable. Particularly a person who has a record of performance. In the case of Buhari, he has been given too much benefit of doubt. Too much! Because what you have to take into account is his records right from the time he was a military head of state till today," Balarabe Musa added.
