Balarabe Musa: Most of those calling for restructuring are hypocrites

WATCH: ‘Only a thief’ can be elected as Nigeria’s president

A former governor in northern Nigeria’s Kaduna state says that only a thief – or a candidate backed by a thief – can be elected president in the oil-rich West African state.

Balarabe Musa, 81, made the comments during a meeting with Sahara Reporters publisher Omoyele Sowore, who hopes to contest next year’s presidential election.

“Nobody can be a president of Nigeria unless he is a thief or is supported by thieves… The fact is clear – otherwise, who can spend billions [on campaigning]?,” said Mr Musa, who was governor from 1979 until 1981.
