Former Governor of Kaduna state and National Chairman of de-registered Peoples Redemption Party (PRP), Alhaji Abdulkadir Balarabe Musa have lamented the security situation in the country stressing that nobody, including President Goodluck Jonathan, is safe in the country.

He stated this  shortly after meeting with members of the National Executive Committee of the party to find alternative political strategies for the party following its deregistration by Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

According to him the present killings and destruction of lives and the dragging of foot approach by the Federal Government has complicated the situation.

Musa also said that for 2015 general elections to be fair, free and credible, the masses should be ready to embark on what he described as peaceful revolution that could usher in leaders the people deserved, adding that he is familiar with the political terrain  of Nigeria and   it is impossible to have free, fair, credible and transparent election leading to democratic mandate.

“We need a revolution; we need peaceful democratic revolution or otherwise, to bring about the condition that will bring about free, fair, credible and transparent election that will lead to legitimate leadership.

“Let us be objective; elections today are decided by three factors: first, money power, second, incumbency, and now we are facing the third one, balance terror; that was how elections were decided in Ekiti and Osun states. The ruling party, PDP can do and undo with the peoples votes. So revolution is the answer whether peaceful or otherwise” he said.

Balarabe also expressed dismay over the hijacking of the country’s political system by money bags, saying the hope of the people getting credible leaders through their voting power would not be feasible, adding that the way forward is  for the masses to stage a social, moral, coup and constitutional types of revolutions, in order to ensure the enthronement of credible leadership in the country comes 2015.

The former governor also disclosed that the de-registration of his party will not deter him from fighting for the cause of the down-trodden.

“Whether PRP is de-registered or not, it remains a movement; whether we can contest election or not, PRP remains a movement. We want to change Nigeria for the better, whether we are political party or not.

So those who don’t want to see PRP exist are wasting their times”, the former governor stated.
