Plus updates by PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan
The spokesperson for the Atiku Campaign Organisation and former ally of President Muhammadu Buhari, Engineer Buba Galadima has told the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal why he jettisoned the president before the 2019 presidential election which held in February this year.
Called as its first witness by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) on Monday, Eng. Galadima, under cross-examination by President Buhari’s counsel, Wole Olanipekun said that he was convinced that President Buhari was qualified to run the initial four times.
He said, however, that he lost faith in him due to the bad governance experienced in the first tenure of his administration.
When asked why he fell out with the President and why he thought the president was not qualified to run, Galadima said he is a fighter against injustice and he felt the president was not qualified again because of bad governance.
According to him, he has nothing personal against President Buhari but the bad governance experienced under his watch cannot be ignored.
The PDP and its presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar are challenging President Buhari’s victory at the February 23 poll.
