Galadima Warns Tinubu Over 2023 Presidential Ambition
Alhaji Buba Galadima, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and former ally of President Muhammadu Buhari, has lamented that the president never helps anyone.
Citing his personal experiences, Galadima added further that Buhari has never been known to reward those who have been of help to him politically.
He made his submission while reacting to rumour that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), was nursing a presidential ambition for 2023.
Speaking with Independent, Galadima warned Tinubu that Buhari never says “thank you” to those who helped him.
He recalled that he sacrificed his “life and blood for 16 years” for Buhari but got nothing in return.
In his words, “The likes of Tinubu are only waiting for their final pay. Anybody who has helped Buhari should cry because he will experience what some of us have come across. Buhari has never rewarded loyalty or anything positive.
“Has Tinubu assisted Buhari one percent of what I have done? I sacrificed my life and blood for 16 years. I was arrested 38 times, tried for treason and thrown into prison. But what is my reward?
“Can’t Tinubu use the man in front to measure the depth of the river? Have you ever heard Buhari say ‘thank you’ to anyone? Has he ever separated a fight? So, anyone expecting a favour from Buhari in return is only wasting his time.”
President Buhari will complete his second term in office by 2023 and the race is already gearing up on who takes over from him as Buhari is constitutionally barred from seeking re-election after his tenure expires in 2023.
