Buba Galadima: Buhari Agreed To Support Tinubu For President by blancsn1: 5:56am On Jun 06
As a former associate of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), do you think the President will impose his candidate or leave it open for all aspirants to contest in the Presidential primary of the APC?

You don’t need to be a prophet or soothsayer to know that the President will indeed anoint whosoever he wants to be the candidate of the APC. But what one needs to look at is whether he could do that with some sense of decorum, with some sense of decency, with some sense of consideration for the opinion of the majority members of his party. My answer is No. Therefore, whoever he anoints will cause bickering, infighting, and a lot of anti-party activities. This will bedevil the APC.

As one of the founding members of the APC, was there any agreement at any time that Tinubu would succeed Buhari?

Not perfectly an agreement, but there was an understanding because Tinubu with one other person and the President also with another person sat down and the information we got was that they agreed that if Tinubu would help Buhari win, he would become the Vice-President. When that was not possible, they called him to ask him to assist because of the exigencies of the time, which wouldn’t have allowed for a Muslim-Muslim ticket.

They said that whatever he does, he should deploy and make sure that Buhari becomes President and that when he (Buhari) is going, he would also do whatever he would in his powers to assist Tinubu to become President. It looks like they are now going back on that understanding. And a promise is a promise whether written or unwritten because if you can subvert it, God knows your heart. And God never accepts betrayal. When you are committed, whether it is sour or bitter, or tasty, you have to swallow it.

Now, it looks like they want to go back on that understanding with Tinubu. This is why Tinubu is bitter and I understand this bitterness, because of what has happened to him, which I told him years back. I told him what was going to happen to him. And everything that I predicted those years is now happening. My prayer for him (Tinubu) is that he should come out of this unscathed and healthy. That is my biggest prayer for him.

But for him, it looks like he has already been subverted. The only way he can get his momentum is if the party agrees to do primaries. If the party agrees to go to the primaries, I have no doubt in my mind that Tinubu may emerge victorious, but as far as the consensus which they want to adopt is concerned, he is out of the game.

Who were those present when Buhari and Tinubu reached this agreement you claimed?

I won’t tell you but the people involved know. Tinubu came to the meeting with a former governor while Buhari came with a sitting governor. That is why that governor is solidly behind Tinubu today and because of the fear of God. But I wouldn’t want to mention the names of the two of them, because, Tinubu himself has alluded to this kind of understanding.

So are you saying that Buhari is the kind of person that does not honour promises?

Well, I don’t know. You should be the judge or ask Tinubu to whom he made the verbal promise.

So you foresee a situation whereby the party can have some crises or can even break if Tinubu is schemed out?

Well, the truth of the matter is that Nigerian politicians are cowards. Nigerian politicians are unprincipled. If they are courageous and principled, the APC would have broken into pieces a long time ago. But because of betrayals, God will never allow the APC to succeed, and even if they succeed, they will never have peace.

So what do you think of Tinubu’s outburst in Abeokuta last week and the threat by the APC National Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu, to punish him?

Well, who is the APC chairman? Where was he when some of us were fighting for Buhari? Where was he? He should remember what he did to us in 2003. Is it because Buhari has forgotten?

If Buhari recollects what the APC national chairman did to him, he would not even ever allow him to shake his hand, let alone make him chairman.

What did the APC chairman do in 2003?

Well, you can ask him (Adamu Abdullahi) that Buba Galadima said that you did something to Buhari in 2003. And that it is abominable to the extent that he (Buhari) shouldn’t even shake hands with you or stay under one roof with you. Let him tell you what he did to Buhari during our campaigns.

But some may argue that in politics, alliances change. What would you say of Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo who was Tinubu’s protégé but is now running against his former boss?

So, politics does not connote decency or respect at all? Is that what you are trying to tell me? I am a principled person. I am with Rabiu Kwankwaso, for example now, even if you give me the whole of the Central Bank of Nigeria, that cannot change me. And you can ask Goodluck Jonathan’s people about me. In 2015, they tried to induce Sule Yahaya, who was our director-general; Mustapha Saliu, the man from Kwara State who was Deputy National Chairman of the CPC and me, just for us to make an appearance and endorse the candidacy of Jonathan but we refused to take it.

Therefore, we are not doing things for personal benefits. We do things hoping that it would be the best for Nigeria. That is why I don’t believe in sentiments; primordial sentiments of religion, tribe or where one comes from. We have tried all these and we have failed as a nation. Why don’t we try for once capacity and capability to accommodate all Nigerians and deliver Nigeria from this present status instead of predicament?

You think Osinbajo should have given up his presidential ambition for loyalty to Tinubu?

If he doesn’t, can you now trust him? If you look at how Osinbajo came with Tinubu and he’s now contesting against Tinubu who brought him, how safe would you be to work with such a person?

If the man who did all this to someone who made him commissioner, made him this, made him that and he is now fighting him. You will now want to fight for him now, what would be your status later in life with him?

Now that you are in the NNPP…

(Cuts in) I am the national chairman of the Reformed APC, a faction that broke off from the APC and I am still one. But there is no law, either an act or the constitution of the party, or that of the country that prevents any member of any political party from supporting a candidate of other parties.

Maybe my knowledge is small, but if you think there is, please advise me on the law or in the section of the constitution that stops that so that I could stop parading myself as Chairman of the Reformed APC or supporting another candidate or aspirant of another political party.

And this is how they will keep whining and playing with Tinubu until he finally commit suicide.

Tinubu's criminal ambition is dead on arrival. The man is yet to donate money to the people of owo. But if that incident had happened in the north, the druggie would have gone there with full speed and would have donated 200m by now. Truly, the Afonjas are slaves to the northerners!

The stupidity exuded by most of Tinubu supporters is out of this world. It's only Igbos that kicked against Tinubu presidency? Anyone that say No to Tinubu is automatically Igbo? I am from Akwa Ibom and right from day one, I have never hidden the fact that I don't want that man. Does that make me Igbo?

PDP already declared that the over 20 years your shameless tribe slave their soul away to serve it isn't enough to earn you it presidential ticket n you need another 8 years after Atiku yet you ain't worried about that. You are busy jumping about early morning like a damage soul working hard to mirror the grotesque of your wretchedness unto others.

Only a fool won't know that Tinubu is Buhari's candidate, and he will win the APC presidential ticket, and go on to defeat Atiku with Buhari's support.

Even Atiku knows Tinubu is the only APC candidate that will defeat him in both North and South.

But Atiku will only defeat Tinubu in the Southeast because my people are too one-sided, arrogant, brutish, foolish, full of envy and hate for Tinubu because he is greater than all politicians in the Southeast combined. This is the bitter truth.

Peter Obi was Governor of Anambra when Awkuzu SARS were killing hundreds of igbos like chicken and dumping their mutilated bodies into the Ezu river, and Obi did nothing to stop it, yet we Igbos are promoting Obi as a messiah. Nobody has called him out for that but some foolish igbos keep calling for the head of Tinubu as if he is responsible for their misery and failure in life.

Look at how igbos like me are spearheading the social media campaign of calumny and defamation against Tinubu, and they think the people that matter are not noticing it. Later when Tinubu becomes president and North, SW and SS get all the juicy positions and prominence, my people will start wailing marginalization because they have been relegated to nothingness and inconsequentiality.

I have never seen a tribe so collectively foolish in my life, as we igbos keep repeating the same mistakes over and over again. This was exactly the same thing we did to Buhari that made him start calling us 5% and dot in a circle after he became president.

Peter Obi was Anambra governor when igbos were been slaughtered in abattoir right under his nose as CSO of the State, but Obi is our hero but Tinubu a man in faraway lands that has made Southwest a second home for igbos is our #1 public enemy. Tinubu is responsible for all our problems. What a shame! I'm ashamed of my tribe's foolishness and blind tribalistic hate.

Ewu nwuru n'oba ji abughi agu gburu ya. It is nothing but our foolishness, extreme hate and tribalism that is killing us and killing our chances to reach our true potential of greatness in Nigeria.

I, Prince of Anambra, wholeheartedly support Tinubu publicly, so that other people can know that not all igbos are fools.
