Buba Galadima, Chairman of splinter group of the ruling All Progressives Congress, the Reformed All Progressives Congress (R-APC) says he will advice President Muhammadu Buhari not to contest again in 2019.
Buba Galadima said this in Abuja yesterday at the signing of Memorandum of Understanding between his group and thirty-seven other opposition parties.
“If I were his advisers, I’ll advise him not to attempt to contest. Going by what I know and what I have access to, I can assure you that General Buhari will not only lose the election but also his deposits. From the day we announced the reformed APC a lot of people were under pressure to back out.
“We are ready to take on this fight despite any deprivation and intimidation because this country belong to all of us. We must together fight to put it aright.
“They can use the big stick . You know a desperate person can do anything, he can kill, If he has power he can arrest and detain. Whichever one they choose to do we are prepared to lay down our lives for the sake of our people.”
He added that the ruling APC was jittery since he and his group formed a parallel faction,
“Since we made declaration to form R-APC, we have received series of support and solidarity from all over the world. I am confident that we will put our acts together.
“If we are fair to ourselves and do things transparently in bringing out one man or woman, we’ll be victorious. This is not a tea party and the man we are facing is military general but we know him and you know that I know him,” he said.
The coalition code name Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) is to wrestle power from President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.
