A former governor of Kaduna State in the Second Republic, Balarabe Musa, says nobody can become the President of Nigeria without first being a thief or supported by thieves.
According to him, there is hardly how anyone can legitimately raise the kind of money required for presidential campaign in the country.
He blamed the socio-economic woes of the country on the political structure, where, according to him, 99 per cent of the people in the corridors of power were thieves.
Musa was captured as saying this in a video clip circulating on the Facebook.
He was captured as playing host to the publisher of an online news medium, Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore, a presidential hopeful.
Sowore, in the clip, said he visited the Kaduna politician to seek his counsel on how to go about his presidential ambition in 2019.
