Alhaji Balarabe Musa, former governor of Kaduna State has advised the federal government against the continued privatisation of companies and parastatals. Musa stated that it is a waste of effort for the government to continue with the exercise because it has not helped any country in the world.

He said, “The government must not waste its time in privatizing our institutions because at the end it would be  an attempt in futility,”.

Musa suggested Public Private Partnership as the best option.  The best practice all over the world is for government and the private sector to partner instead of selling the whole people’s investment in the hand of private people.  He cited the example of power sector as an available example.

“Government sold power installations to private people today can anybody stand boldly to say Nigeria is enjoying power supply”
