Buhari was originally against the idea of working with Tinubu— Galadima

The chairman of the Reformed All Progressives Congress (r-APC), Buba Galadima, has claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari was originally against building any political coalition with the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu.

Galadima’s views were expressed in the current edition of The Interview magazine.

He said he was majorly responsible for the alliance between the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) and the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), against Buhari’s wishes.

Galadima 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.”

Galadima hinted that Buhari may have submitted the name of another running mate in the INEC form that was initially scheduled to go out.

In a statement, the MD/Editor-In-Chief of The Interview, Azu Ishiekwene, described the Galadima interview as “the stuff of a broken love affair, with no closet details spared.”

Using a slogan, ‘Anybody But Buhari (ABB)’, Galadima said he was planning to write an open letter to Buhari 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.

Galadima also criticized the chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, describing him as a latter-day Buharist trying to hijack the party.
