Exposé of looting under Buhari will give him heart attack after 2023 – Buba Galadima
Chairman of the defunct Reformed All Progressives Congress (R-APC), Buba Galadima, says colossal looting of the nation’s treasury is going on under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
He said the president is however not aware because he is allegedly not in charge of his own government.
Galadima, a strong critic of the president, said that the exposé of grand corruption in the present administration that would take place after 2023 would drive the president to the brink of a heart attack.
The vocal politician stated these in an interview published by Sunday Sun while reacting to revelations of grand corruption in the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) and other agencies of government.
Galadima said that the revelations were not entirely unexpected going by the calibre of people appointed into high offices by Buhari.
“We had already predicted some of these things that are coming out now,” Galadima stated.
“Years back, we had envisaged that they would happen and we raised the alarm. But the owners of this administration saw us as an enemy or opponent of government.
“They were looking at the messenger not the message. If not, certain people that were appointed as ministers wouldn’t have been appointed. While Buhari was making the appointments, there were lots of allegations that people were paying for their positions.
“Some of these people were even under investigation for alleged stealing where they had worked before. But President Muhamadu Buhari found it expedient to appoint them.
“So, how can anybody in his right senses expect Akpabio to be a saint? Everybody knows that they have to recoup the money they invested in buying those positions. This is exactly what is happening.
“I just wish the president well because if he finishes his term, and he hears certain revelations of what has been happening during his government, I hope he would not have heart attack, because it will be unbelievable for him.
“It is now left for him to look at the issues dispassionately and do justice for the people of Nigeria who gave them their trust.”
