Amid nationwide disbelief over how Nigerian leaders hoarded COVID-19 palliatives while Nigerians starved, the All Progressives Congress chieftain, Buba Galadima, says officials of an undisclosed state government once approached his office to help sell them.
Galadima said this while spoke on an AIT programme on Monday, blasting state governments for hoarding relief items donated by the Private Sector Coalition Against Covid-19 also known as CACOVID.
He said, “I know of a state that all the palliatives taken from the Federal Government in that state was kept in stores and they came to my office to look for buyers of such commodities.
“They said the buyers should not be from that particular state.”
Asked if he shared the information with security agents, Galadima replied, “They are listening now. Anything I say on any interview, electronic or print, it is better for the security agencies not to look at it as coming from their enemies. It should be (seen as) coming from their friend, from a patriotic citizen who is sacrificing his life because what I am doing can cost me my life.”
Hungry Nigerians had recently invaded several warehouses where COVID-19 palliatives hidden across the country and carted away food items.
State governors had since come under fire for allegedly hoarding the relief materials meant for the commonplace people.
