Second Republic politician, Alhaji Balarabe Musa, has said that the country will continue to fail as long as it remains under the leadership of either of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The elder statesman made this disclosure in an exclusive interview with Sunday Tribune during the week.
“The APC is in power now in Kogi and Bayelsa. It would have been the same thing if it lost to its main contender. There wouldn’t have been any difference if it were to be the PDP.
“I think part of the solutions to the lingering mess that exists in the country is to search for a third force outside of both PDP and APC, which is more progressive in reality, and not in nominal sense.
“When the suffering is beyond the endurance of the masses, then, there will be social revolution. Unless this is done, there will be serious problem in Nigeria. This is because there is no way that Nigeria can survive with political parties like PDP and APC. No, it is not possible!” he said.
