A former governor of old Kaduna state, Alhaji Balarabe Musa, has said former President Olusegun Obasanjo contributed to the system that made Nigeria worse for President Muhammadu Buhari.

The elder statesman was reacting to the recent comments of Obasanjo concerning the Buhari-led administration.

The former Nigerian leader berated President Muhammadu Buhari, over his handling of the country's affairs, warning that Nigeria is fast drifting towards a failed state under the administration of President Buhari.

Obasanjo made the claim during a speech titled 'Moving Nigeria Away From Tipping Over' which he delivered at a dialogue in Abuja, the federal capital.

Alhaji Musa added that if President Obasanjo and his predecessors had performed well, Nigeria would not have been in its current bad shape.

“If he had done the right thing and those before him also had done the right thing, the situation would not have been so bad for Buhari,” he told Daily Trust in an interview.

According to him, all the past leaders especially those that ruled before President Obasanjo and those after him have failed the country.

He added that President Buhari who now bears the burden of a rotten system has also made it even worse.

“We should simply be honest with ourselves because we know them and we are older than some of them.

“We should tell the truth now that we are alive. And the truth is that they have all failed one after the other.

“The succeeding ones made it even worse; Buhari, being the latest, has made it even worse.

“Buhari, no matter what he does, cannot control the situation except God decides to change everything,” he lamented.
