Tinubu’s first 100 days in office better than Buhari’s eight years, says Rarara, popular APC singer

Dauda Kahuta, a popular singer of the All Progressives Congress (APC), says the first 100 days of President Bola Tinubu in the office were better than the eight years Muhammadu Buhari spent in power.

Kahuta, also known as Rarara, who spoke during a press conference held in Kano on Thursday, said Buhari’s administration damaged the affairs of the country before handing over to Tinubu.

“I regret it (supporting Buhari) because we were optimistic that Buhari will fix this country. But we did not see it till he finished his administration. Every parastatal of government was damaged by Buhari’s administration,” Rarara said.

The singer also said Tinubu should have consulted him before appointing his ministers.

“If I am not appointed minister, I should at least be consulted and be allowed to choose the people that will be appointed ministers,” the singer said.

Reacting to Rarara’s outburst, Bashir Ahmad, former special assistant on new media to Buhari, in a post on Friday on his official X page, said the singer’s comments were “fraught with all kinds of convolutions and ignorance”.

“For me, it is unnecessary to waste time engaging Dauda Rarara because of his yesterday’s press conference. His statements are fraught with all kinds of convolutions and ignorance,” Ahmad said.

“I couldn’t find a thread to hold to so as to engage a mere singer who arrogantly boosted that his songs contributed 15% – 20% of Muhammadu Buhari’s overall victories and, at the same time, saw himself as a very important individual who should be compensated with at least two ministerial appointments and DGs of federal agencies for his contributions to President Tinubu’s victory.

“There is no wisdom in Rarara’s statement, to say the least. However, this is purely a matter of politics; those who think what Rarara said was right have every right to express their views and opinions.”
