President Muhammadu Buhari has urged politicians and other citizens to emulate Alhaji Balarabe Musa’s virtuous life of honesty, integrity, selflessness and patriotism in order to make Nigeria achieve progress.
Malam Garba Shehu, the President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, in a statement issued in Abuja yesterday, said Buhari made the call in a tribute to Balarabe Musa on the occasion of his 81st birthday anniversary.
Buhari described the former civilian governor of old Kaduna State as a “man of unassailable integrity and untainted record of public service”.
According to the president, even Musa’s worst enemies and critics cannot dispute his remarkable reputation for integrity and selfless service to the people.
He said: “Balarabe Musa is one of Nigeria’s brightest stars of integrity and sterling principles.
“The octogenarian has lived to his reputation by avoiding any conduct associated with corruption and dishonour.”
