Alhaji Buba Galadima who is National Chairman of the Reformed-All Progressives Congress (R-APC) and estranged political associate of President Muhammadu, has expressed over the hardship facing Nigerians but said things would only get worse under the Buhari administration.
Galadima in an interview with Daily Sun said those expecting anything good to come from Buhari’s government would be disappointed because everything he has said before, about the Buhari government can be verified to be true.
Responding to question on whether he thinks the current economic recession in the country could have been averted if the country had a better management team, he said, “You’ve been interviewing me for nearly 10 years if I am correct and there is nothing I have not said about the issues of capacity, management, and ineptitude of those running the affairs of our country.
“I want to tell you again that Nigerians have not seen anything yet from this government. Nigerians may be picking food from the dustbin in the nearest future. I am sorry, it is not what I want, but that is what will happen.
“People will pick from the dustbin. Ghana-must-go reincarnate is going to happen in Nigeria. People will carry a bag of naira to the market to buy one cup of rice because there is no manager of the economy and there is nobody supervising officials of government.
“You hear everyday government borrowing millions of dollars and you will never see where these dollars are going. Currently, people are just looting money and stockpiling it for themselves and their families.
“I know of a Chief Executive Officer of a parastatal who has over 100 petitions against him. Even his son was arrested in Dubai for ridding a car of more than $150,000. Yet, nobody has investigated him. Even if the man is clean, the mere fact that his son was found with millions of dollars in his account and driving a car of over $150,000 in Dubai is enough for the government to look into his activities. But nobody is monitoring anybody.
“Nobody is evaluating the work of officials of government. Look at Kano-Abuja road which Babangida built in three years, now we were told it would take eight years just to service the road.”
On insecurity in the North, he said, “You don’t know what is happening all over the North. If you know, you will shed tears for us. This is where we found ourselves.
“They will be kidnapping people and the police and soldiers will be looking. Nobody will come to your rescue. But they have enough security men and women to deploy to steal votes from the innocent Nigerians.”
