… Says APC Not A Party
A member of the All Progressive Congress, APC Board of Trustee, BoT, Engr. Buba Galadima, has said that he would have deregistered the party if he were Chairman of the Independent Natioal Electoral Committee INEC, saying APC is not a party as it stands now and has done everything to prove that.
Galadima who spoke on the Tuesday edition of Focus Nigeria, a current affairs programme of the Africa Independent Television (AIT), anchored by Gbenga Aruleba, said that the APC was a party waiting to be swept out of power, adding that the party is becoming enemy of itself.
He is a card carrying member of APC but, according to him, he is baffled as to how President Muhammadu Buhari has let the country down by keeping quiet in all the happenings around Nigeria.
Engr. Buba Galadima is a Nigerian politician who was appointed National Secretary of the former Congress for Progressive Change party, formed in the run-up to the 2011 national elections as a leading platform for former military ruler General Muhammadu Buhari which later merged with AC and others in 2015 to become APC.
He also said he has been a politicians for almost 15 years and has been in the forefront of educating the citizenry on how good it will be if a Northerner is elected as president.
Venting his disappoint in Buhari once more, he said: “since the advent of Buhari, APC has not been a party and has never followed their own internal rules and regulations”.
Commenting on Obasanjo’s letter, he said it couldn’t have come at a better time.
“I dare the APC to arrest me, I dare them. If they do, that will be the end of their mission,” Galadima said.
He stated that he worked for Buhari for 14 years during which he told him the truth and spoke correctly about him.
He however added that another issue with Nigerian leaders is the lack of capacity to reflect and apologise even when they go wrong.
According to him, “the problem of the APC has to do with exclusion, lack of consultations in the party and the government and lack of public relations.
He said that Nigerian leaders have not learnt to damn praise singers who are abound in the polity, adding that as a stakeholders in the APC he would not descend to the level of praise singing.
He also said that President Buhari was comfortable with his new crop of friends because of their penchant to worship him and praise sing.
The former close aide of Buhari said that the President should thank former President Olusegun Obasanjo for telling him the truth about his government as, according to him, anyone who tells someone carrying a load to adjust his load is a friend and patriot.
He challenged APC spokesmen including Lai Mohammed to a debate on Obasanjo’s recent letter to Buhari, adding “I will stand here to tell
you everything Obasanjo said is the truth.
He urged the president to either resign or at least see through his tenure and allow other Nigerian to contest and get the economy running since he is a shadow of himself and that people (cabals) are running his government for him.
