Galadima Says Attacks on Nigerian Leaders Abroad Part Of Democracy



VIDEO: We Will Not Support ‘Igbo Presidency’ In 2023 - Buba Galadima

Buba Galadima, estranged political ally of Muhammadu Buhari, Nigeria’s president has said the attack on Nigerian leaders within and outside the country by angry Nigerians is part of core democracy.

Naija News reports that Galadima is of the opinion that the attacks were part of Nigerians’ protest against bad governance.

He added that the act of attacking leaders was also an expression of their demands for accountability from those in power.

Galadima made this known while speaking with journalists in the cause of the weekend.

In his words, Galadima said; “I want to assure you that even those of us who have nothing to fear or nothing to hide will be very apprehensive to visit certain places outside Nigeria because one is not sure when one will be attacked.

“I can tell you that these attacks on leaders are part of democracy. If somebody believes in himself, he has nothing to fear and would freely travel out to any country even if you are killed for what you believe. What I’m driving at is that our leaders should do better than they are doing or else, the law of Karma will catch up with them within or outside the shores of Nigeria.

“I’m not supporting the treatment being meted out to the leaders outside Nigeria. What I’m saying is that the leaders should be very careful about their behaviour while in office because the people are beginning to demand accountability from them.”

While speaking on the expectations of Nigerians from President Buhari, Galadima said; “It is my view that we have not seen anything yet. We have said many things severally and all of them have come to pass.

“The current leadership in Nigeria today is one of the most insensitive that this country has ever produced. It does not give a damn about anybody’s feeling on any issue.

“However, the most important thing to note is that we have told the people severally that the man doesn’t know what happens around him and it is manifesting.

“How can the president now say that all ministers who are recognised by the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria should be reporting to an individual whose office is not even recognised by the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria?

“Abba Kyari is the de-facto President of Nigeria even though the word chiefs of staff did not appear in any sentence in the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“In fact, it is even better than we have an Abba Kyari because if there was no Abba Kyari or Mamman Daura, only God knows what Buhari would have done.”
