Buhari Showed Nigerians His True Colour After Attaining Power – Galadima

A member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Buba Galadima, has said President Muhammadu Buhari’s “true colour” was shown to Nigerians after the president attained power.

Galadima, a former associate of Buhari, also accused the president of abandoning the ideals he stood for after attaining the number one political office in the land.

According to the northern politician, Nigeria would have been a better place if Buhari had sustained the values he stood for.

“He (Buhari) knew why he came to politics and why some of us sacrificed everything to ensure that he becomes President but when he became President, he sort of kicked out all those ideals for which we fought for, for which we had been intimidated and for which he suffered trial for treason,” Galadima told New Telegraph in an interview.

“So, it is something that is most unfortunate for a statesman like him, saying something and not living to his words.

“If we had followed our own programme as envisaged in 2002, Nigeria would have been elsewhere now like Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, India and a host of so many other advanced countries of the world.

“We shouted for Buhari for many years but that didn’t make him a President until he crossed the borders to meet other people from other parts of the country. He went out to seek the assistance of others… then after he won, he brought out his true colours.

Galadima also dismissed notions that past administrations of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) should be blamed for the country’s backwardness.

“Let’s agree with him on what he has said about the situation he met. Why was he voted for? He was voted for because most Nigerians believed that he would take us out of the woods,” he said.

“So it is no excuse. Whenever anybody in this government blames past governments, I just laugh. Who are those among them in the government that were not part of the PDP, including the President himself.”
