We can afford to ignore Buba Galadima – Oshiomhole
The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress APC Comrade Adams Oshiomhole yesterday said though he is aware there are challenges being faced by the party, there was no threatening splinter group as far as he was concerned.
Accordingly, Oshiomhole dismissed the splinter rAPC led by Alhaji Buba Galadima saying it poses no threat to the oneness of the APC.
“We listened to Buba Galadima. It is as if a very hungry bird is dancing at the centre of the road and a disgruntled drummer not far away in the bush is drumming for him.
“But this is not to say that we are not aware that there are challenges here and there, but anything about APC is considered more much more than the sum total of all the challenges we have in many of the states. And by the special grace of God we shall overcome them and we are already overcoming them.
“I am very confident that we can afford to ignore Buba Galadima,” he said.
He also confirmed that the leadership of the party has been meeting with concerned individuals who according to him have ‘genuine concerns on certain matters’ and that there was no cause for alarm especially as regards the re-election bid of President Buhari.
“For me, there is no cause for alarm, nobody should panic over one Baba Galadima, whose group, I believe, cannot define us in the next election in 2019.
“Nigerians are wiser, they know that corruption is fighting back, they also know that President Buhari’s resolve to fight corruption must elicit a counter force and that force must find attraction in some people,” he said.
