- The Chairman of the Reformed All Progressives Congress (R-APC), Buba Galadima, says President Muhammadu Buhari wanted nothing to do with Asiwaju Bola Tinubu
- The R-APC chairman described the cosy relationship between Buhari and Tinubu as an afterthought
- Galadima said he was principally responsible for the alliance between the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) and the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN)
Buba Galadima, the chairman of the Reformed All Progressives Congress (R-APC), has opened up on the relationship between Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari and the national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Galadima, a former ally of the president, said the cosy relationship between President Buhari and the national leader of the APC is an afterthought.
NAIJ.com gathered that Galadima in a tell-all account in the current edition of The Interview magazine, said he was principally responsible for the alliance between the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) and the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), against Buhari’s wishes.
Both Buhari and Tinubu were the leaders of CPC and ACN, two of the five legacy parties that formed the APC in 2014.
He said: “Buhari was the one against the alliance with Tinubu and I don’t want to say anything. Let Buhari deny what I have said. I was for it and I organised it and wrote a memo that even produced a candidate for the vice presidency, this same Osinbajo.”
The R-APC chairman also hinted that Buhari may have, in fact, pencilled in another running mate in the INEC form that was to have been submitted.
Galadima said he was planning to write an open letter to the president very soon, adding that the president was a “floored candidate” who will lose his deposit if he contests re-election.
“If he was raising cattle in Daura, I wouldn’t bother about him. I’m criticising him because he’s the President of Nigeria and he’s not doing very well,” Galadima said.
Meanwhile the MD/Editor-In-Chief of The Interview, Azu Ishiekwene, in a statement described Galadima's interview as “the stuff of a broken love affair, with no closet details are spared.”
NAIJ.com previously reported that the chairman of the Reformed All Progressives Congress (R-APC), Buba Galadima, was involved in a ghastly motor accident.
Available information indicated that Galadima was returning from Yobe state on Monday, July 23, where he went to condole with his brother who lost his daughter in company of his son, Sadiq Galadimma, a relative Mohammed Galadima and two others when the unfortunate incident happened along Hadeija-Kano road.
