Buhari’s Praise Singer, Rarara Says He Regrets Supporting Ex-President

Accuses Him Of Destroying Nigeria Before Handing Over To Tinubu

popular Hausa singer, Dauda Kahutu, popularly known as Rarara, has said he regretted supporting the immediate-past Nigerian president, Muhammadu Buhari.

Rarara who made this known in a press conference in Kano on Thursday alleged that the Buhari government had destroyed the country before handing over to President Bola Tinubu in May.

The singer became popular after dropping many hit songs in which he praised Mr Buhari.

He alleged that his support for Buhari then was blind and premised on the belief that he would be competent to solve the problems created by Goodluck Jonathan’s government, but his performance for eight years proved otherwise.

Mr Rarara questioned Tinubu’s administration for not speaking out about Mr Buhari’s alleged recklessness.

The musician further claimed that he was denied the opportunity to meet with President Bola Tinubu in order to advise him on how to expose the alleged corruption of the previous administration.

He was quoted by Daily Nigerian saying, “Despite the fact that the president has made appointments in sectors where monumental corruption took place, nobody is saying anything.

“The president hasn’t said anything. Even the NSA, Defence Minister, Minister of Agriculture, and SGF are all quiet; nobody is saying anything.

“And it would be very disastrous for this administration to be built on the foundation of lies, it would have consequences.

“I challenge them to tell people the truth. Buhari made sure he destroyed this country before leaving office. He destroyed everything. And I want them to let Nigerians know.

“There is no big deal about it. During the PDP administration, we told Nigerians that the party had killed this country, and that was why the people voted for us.

“So why should we be afraid to tell Nigerians what Buhari did?”

When asked if he regretted supporting Mr Buhari, the musician answered in the affirmative.

“Yes, I regret supporting him. The reason is that I supported him blindly, hoping that he would fix the damage done by the PDP administration,” he said.

Speaking on his contributions to the success of the ruling party, the praise singer said he deserved to be rewarded with a ministerial appointment.

“Even if I won’t be appointed minister, I deserve to have a say or recommend people for ministerial and other positions.

“I have passed the level to be given a slot for one political appointment. And it’s not that I have been used and dumped. But if they dare dump me, I will fire back.

“I have also passed a level where I would go to places uninvited. In the North, only Ganduje and Aminu Bello Masari contributed to Tinubu’s victory more than me. So I deserve to recommend
