APC Cheiftain Buba Galadima, Testifies Against Buhari In Election Tribunal
Buba Galadima, a spokesperson for the Atiku Campaign Organisation, says he is still a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and he made this statement while speaking at the presidential tribunal in Abuja. The PDP had presented Buba Galadima, as its witness.
Wole Olanipekun, APC’s counsel who cross-examined him, asked Galadima why he was no longer on good terms with the president. To which Galadima responded that he supported Buhari’s presidential ambition in 2003, 2007, 2011 and 2015, because he believed Buhari was a qualified leader for Nigeria. But that the bad governance in Buhari’s administration has made him change his mind.
“I’m still a member of APC, in fact I am the Chairman of the Reformed APC. I have not been sacked. We are in court. I don’t want to be subjudice. I’m not a member of PDP, but we have a memorandum of understanding with the PDP to produce God-fearing, good and educated leaders.”
Galadima was a strong ally in the Buhari camp and was one of the nine signatories that signed the merger agreement to form the All Progressives Congress. However, he was called as a witness, after Livy Uzoukwu, PDP’s lawyers, tendered some result sheets from four local government areas of Kano State.
Atiku who is challenging the result of the 2019 presidential elections, tendered 26,175 exhibits against the election. Paul Ibe, Atiku’s spokesman, defended those exhibits, which included result sheets from polling units, wards and local governments in eight states namely Katsina, Kebbi, Borno, Jigawa, Gombe, Bauchi, Kaduna and partly Kano. With these results, Atiku is claiming that he won the election.
