Mailafia Makes New Revelation About Joining APC

Dr. Obadiah Mailafia has said he refused to join the All Progressives Congress (APC) of his own free will but was blackmailed in an attempt to make him join the ruling party.

Naija News reports Mailafia is a former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, and the 2019 presidential candidate of African Democratic Congress.

Speaking on Tuesday, he said he was told to join the APC so that he could be forgiven of an offence he did not commit, noting the infraction he was being questioned for, didn’t happen in his department.

Mailafia bared his mind in an interview with journalists during a meeting of stakeholders at the national secretariat of ADC in Abuja.

Mailafia said, “Just before the elections, there were pressures on me and I was even interrogated by security agencies over something that happened in the CBN about 10 years ago which was not even in my department.

“They blackmailed me that if I join APC, I would be forgiven. I told them, why can’t they join me? I even asked them why can’t President Muhammadu Buhari come and join my party, ACD? What does he have that I don’t have more than him? Is it their analogue generation that will save Nigeria? Somebody that has never even used a computer. What have they to offer Nigeria again?”

Speaking on the P&ID court verdict, Mailafia warned that it is a judicial scam which if not properly taken care of, is capable of putting Nigeria in a big mess.

He said, “The P&ID is a judicial scam of the highest order and it has been orchestrated by international forces that want to destroy our country. They did it in conspiracy with some high-powered Nigerians and it is very shameful.”
