Presidential tribunal: Galadima testifies against Buhari


A factional member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Engr Buba Galadima, has testified as a witness for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), at the resumed Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal on Monday. Galadima, who claimed to be the National Chairman of the Reformed APC (rAPC), however, stated that the party had an agreement with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to provide better governance to Nigerians. The PDP and its presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, are challenging President Muhammadu Buhari’s victory at the February 23 poll. Galadima, who disclosed that he had known President Buhari since the 1960s and had worked with him since his presidential campaigns in 2003, however, said he left him because he failed to deliver on promises to the people. He further added that he has nothing personal against President Buhari, but against bad governance, adding that he teamed up with Atiku and PDP to provide “a good, God-fearing, and educated leader” to Nigerians. While being cross examined by Buhari’s lead counsel, Wole Olanipekun (SAN), Galadima was asked if he was convinced that President Buhari was qualified to run the initial four times he ran for the presidency and Galadima answered in the affirmative. The former ally of President Buhari, further said he is a fighter against injustice, and feels the president was not qualified again because of bad governance. Galadima however noted that he was still a member of the APC because he has not been sacked.
