APC Is Finished, I Dare Them To Expel Me – Engineer Buba Galadima.
A member of the Board of Trustees (BoT) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and long time associate of President Muhammadu Buhari, Engineer Buba Galadima, said on Tuesday that the Buhari administration has finished its course.
He said that the administration has written its obituary ahead of the 2019 election but just waiting to publish it.
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.
“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 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.”
