Alhaji Buba Galadima who is one of the closest allies of President Muhammadu Buhari has hinted that he may run in 2019 without a political party.

Galadima who worked with Buhari in the 2003, 2007, 2011 and 2015 general elections said there is a strong chance that he would not be on the platform of any party in 2019.

He stated that this is due to the problems rocking the APC and the fact that Buhari has not involved himself in it.

He said:

“Definitely, I know that General Muhammadu Buhari will not want to run on the platform of any party.

“Because he has already cast aspersion on party politics and politicians.

“So we would try to find out on what platform he would contest if he wants to be president in 2019.

“On what vehicle he would ride, but definitely not on a political party.”

Galadima said that some people were undermining the effort of the party.

He further disclosed that the party had shared invitation letters for Board of Trustees (BoT) meetings and later aborted the meeting.

The APC chieftain added that the board only met once as the national caucus of the party.

Galadima informed saying:

“Let’s assume that the president doesn’t like the party executive, he’s now the president.

“He can find a way of easing them out.

“Have you ever seen in the history of Nigeria, where in the secretariat of the ruling party, water is disconnected, electricity is disconnected.

“Salaries of aides and workers are not paid for six months?

“It’s shameful, it’s disgraceful and we claim to be in government. We are not saints.”

He denied the rumour that the president was giving political appointments to former members of the defunct CPC.

Galadima also alleged isolation of the CPC faction of the ruling APC.

He revealed:

“Can there be CPC without Buba Galadima and Sule Hamma and AVM Mukhtar Mohammed?

“What appointment do they have? Have we ever seen the president since he became one?

“Who are the CPC people? Even the national chairman of the party, Chief Odigie-Oyegun, told me that the president only appointed CPC people.

“Can you count five people that were CPC and are in this government?

“I hope you know that the CPC was formed on this desk (referring to his office at Zone 4, Abuja) without even Buhari’s knowledge.

“So, if they appoint CPC people and I don’t know them, who else would know them?”
