A renowned professor of Medicine at Bayero University, Kano, Musa Borodo, has distanced himself from a viral message circulated on social media.

The viral message, which was attributed him, blamed masses for the Nigeria’s predicaments and absolved past and present leaders of the nation’s problems.

But the professor told DAILY NIGERIAN on Wednesday that he did not issue any statement to that effect, even as he believes both the political class and the masses have their fair share of blame in the challenges the country is facing.

“That piece that is going round which was claimed to have been from myself is not correct. I did not write that piece. Obviously, whoever did it might have tried to gauge my thinking about the political situation in Nigeria.

“But I think he got it half way wrong. My belief is that even though the followership in Nigeria has its own problem and this certainly is contributing to political problems in Nigeria, there is no way we can absolve the leadership of blame completely.

“I think a better position would have been to say that both the followership and the leadership need to be self-critical, and collectively we will be able to accept the various levels of responsibilities that each of the two segments have.

“And if we work together, we probably can change things. But certainly that piece was not from me,” he said.

Mr Borodo said to think that “leaders have no problem whatsoever and all the problems is that of the followership is naive.”
