I m Happy Obasenjo and Jonathan encountered road accident – Balarabe Musa

The former Preseidents General Olusegun Obasenjo and Goodluck Jonathan recently experienced road accident mishaps and the former Governor of Katsina Balrabe says it serves them right.

He says: “It serves both Obasanjo and Jonathan right to have a taste of what average Nigerians suffer as a result
of bad state of our roads,”.

“What happened to Obasanjo and Jonathan should now serve as a wake-up call to Buhari. As the sitting
president of the country, he should order a probe into how billions of naira voted for construction and repair works on the roads ended in private pockets. The stolen money should be retrieved while those involved no matter how highly placed should be put on trial for economic sabotage instead of us sympathizing with Obasanjo and Jonathan. They are the ones who owed Nigerians an apology for failing to perform their duties when they were in
power.

“The state of our roads across the country is very shameful. Most of them are death traps. For an oil-producing nation, this is a big shame and embarrassment. But these carnages on our roads is enough, and this is why Buhari must go all out to apprehend those who are responsible for the deplorable state of our roads.

“Thousands of Nigerians lose their lives on these deplorable roads every­day but now that the two of them
have also become victims of negligence of that highway, the authorities should let them lick their wounds as they soberly reflected that when they had the opportunity to fix the roads, they failed to do so.

Balarabe also called on the present administration to begin immediate probe on miss appropriation of fund  and corruption in road construction contracts in the past regimes.
