Nigerians would have jubilated, poured water on streets had Supreme court sacked Buhari- Galadima
President Muhammadu Buhari’s former ally, Buba Galadima has stated that the citizens of Nigeria would have been in a state of jubilation if the Supreme court had upturned Buhari’s election victory.
On 30th October, 2019, the Supreme court dismissed a suit, appealing the ruling of the Presidential Elections Petition Tribunal (PEPT), filed by Atiku Abubakar of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
Galadima who made this statement during an interview with Channels television, said Nigerians are not happy with the verdict of the Supreme court.
He therefore demanded how the Supreme court arrived at its verdict. He said it was within his constitutional rights to know the analysis of the verdict, not just as a PDP member but as a citizen of Nigeria.
In Galadima’s words ,
“We are waiting to hear the final analysis of how they arrived at that decision. And we as Nigerians have a cover under the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria whether it supports our view,” he said.
“If this judgment today had been that Buhari was removed from office, I’m sure that by now, there would have been fireworks all over this country.
“People would have been jubilating, pouring water on the streets and celebrating. But have you seen any individual who has demonstrated that he is happy with this judgment.”
