In a recent press conference held in Kano, the renowned Hausa political singer, Rarara, made startling accusations against Nigeria’s immediate-past president, Muhammadu Buhari.
Rarara, who gained fame for his unwavering support for Buhari through numerous hit songs, publicly voiced his regret over endorsing the former president.
He accused Buhari of leaving behind a crumbling economy for the current president, Bola Tinubu.
Rarara’s criticisms were not limited to Buhari alone; he also questioned the current administration’s silence regarding what he described as the alleged financial mismanagement during Buhari’s tenure.
He called for transparency and openness, emphasizing the importance of truthfulness in governance.
The singer warned against building the foundation of the current administration on falsehoods, highlighting the potential disastrous consequences such a path could lead to for the nation.
He expressed deep concern over the destruction he claims Buhari caused to the country and urged the current administration to openly acknowledge these challenges to the Nigerian people.
When asked about his regret for supporting Buhari, Rarara openly admitted his disappointment, stating that he had supported the former president blindly, hoping that Buhari would address the damage caused by the previous administration.
He emphasized the need for transparency and honesty in governance, urging leaders to be accountable to the citizens they serve. In addition to his criticisms, Rarara highlighted his significant contributions to the success of the ruling party.
He asserted his right to have a say in political appointments, citing his pivotal role in supporting President Tinubu’s victory.
The singer argued that his efforts, particularly in the northern region, warranted recognition, either in the form of a political appointment or the opportunity to recommend individuals for such positions.
