Buba Galadima, an elder statesman, says Nigeria is presently being ruled by a group of people who do not know their left from their right.
Mr Galadima, a former ally of president Muhammadu Buhari, said this in an interview with the Daily Independent.
He said, “We are being ruled by a group of people who do not know their left from their right. They are so clueless have no agenda or blueprint for the progress and development of Nigeria.
“What we can do is very simple. Let’s cry out to the outside world. There is nobody that this government fears on earth like the white man.”
He further accused Mr. Buhari of forcing himself on Nigerians in the 2019 presidential elections by using security agencies, INEC and the Judiciary to to enforce his victory.
“I am losing hope whether in my life, I will ever see a free and fair election in this country,” he said.
According to him, if he is appointed chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), he would not rely on the federal government for funds to conduct elections.
“We don’t need government to fund INEC at all because we can request donor agencies that will bring materials and pay election officials so that we can have an independent election.
“If they can’t do that, let them appoint me chairman of INEC, I will get funding for INEC. I don’t need one kobo from the federal government of Nigeria. We don’t need any security person; either police or military to look after our elections.”
He also said he has very little expectations from the Buhari government in the coming year.
