I will take them to the market place, he says
National Chairman of the Reformed All Progressives Congress(R-APC), Alhaji Buba Galadima said on Wednesday that the ruling All Progressives Congress(APC) and President Muhammadu Buhari should stop laying claim to integrity.
Galadima, who spoke on Channels Television’s breakfast programmed, Sunrise Daily, said that he was ready to take the President and the APC to the cleaners if they continued to lay claim to integrity.
He said: “I can’t see any integrity whatsoever on the side of Mr, President. Which integrity? Somebody, who condone corrupt people around him? We know of his relatives, we know of his friends who were bankrupt before 2015. We know of his relatives who take N2, 000 transport from us to go to Kaduna, today they are multi-billionaires. They have assets all over the world. They have estates all over the world. I can show anybody that wants to know. So the issue of integrity with this government is not an issue.
“Go to Daura GRA, those houses that looks like you are in Dubai or you are in London or Beirut, are built by who to whom do those properties belong. So please, I don’t want anybody, any APC man to talk to me about integrity. This will be the last time anybody will engage me in a debate will talk to me about integrity. I will take them to the marketplace.”
Speaking on the Electoral Act amendment bill rejected by President, Galadima said that the Presidency only gave the dog a bad name in order to find plausible excuses to withhold assent.
He said that a tripartite team of the National Assembly, the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC) and the National Assembly worked on the bill adding that the INEC has never expressed doubts in the workability of the bill.
According to Galadima, the ruling party was afraid it would lose elections if the new electoral law becomes operational. “There was no ambiguity in the Electoral Act,” he said.
Also speaking on the perceived partisan roles of the security agencies in the general election, Alhaji Galadima said that the President was about to renew the tenure of the Inspector of Police so as to facilitate the rigging of the 2019 election.
He spoke extensively on the role of the police and security agencies this: “But I want to tell you something that you may not believe, the Inspector General of police, his tenure will be expiring on the 3rd of January (2019) I challenge whosoever that by that time the President will renew his tenure and I want to be proved wrong.
“He will renew his tenure for no reason but because this is the Inspector General that can help him rig an election. And I challenge the Inspector General of Police let him tell us his role what happened in 2015 when he was sent by the PDP to the North West zone to stop certain things.
“I challenge him, call him that we have a public debate for the world to see. This inspector general of Police, who defied the orders of Mr President, who should have been dismissed outright by Mr President, but he was condoned because they want to use him another day. Check the military service chiefs, why are they retained? Are they the only people that are competent within the military?
“Is Inspector General of Police, Idris, the only competent police officer? They will deny other zones that opportunity of leading members who are now in the hierarchy of the police because when he goes, it is somebody from another zone that will take over. But simply because the APC government which is nepotic will not allow that person to take over. I don’t think that the police or the security agencies will provide a level playing field, but we will make sure they have to kill all of us.”
