A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Buba Galadima, has dismissed claims that President Muhammadu Buhari is a man of integrity, saying that if the claim were to be true the president wouldn’t have been illegitimately enriching some of his relatives.
Mr Galadima stated this on Wednesday at a Channels Television live programme, Sunrise Daily during a heated debate with an All Progressives Congress member, Senator Ayo Arise, over Mr Buhari’s refusal to assent to Electoral Act bill.
According to Mr Galadima, some individuals close to Mr Buhari, who were poor in 2015 when the President assumed office had somehow become owners of choice houses in Daura, Katsina State.
“We know of his relatives who took N2,000 transport money from us to go to Kaduna. Today, they are multi billionaires. They have assets all over the world. They have estates all over the world. I can show anybody that wants to know. So, the issue of integrity with this government is not an issue.
“Go to Daura GRA. When you go there, all the houses that make you feel as if you are in Dubai, London or Beirut were built by whom? To whom do those properties belong?
“So, please, I don’t want any All Progressives Congress man to talk to me about integrity. This should be the last time anybody engaging me in a debate would talk about integrity; I will take them to the marketplace.”
Mr Galadima, who is currently the 2019 campaign spokesperson of the PDP, made the allegation while engaging in a debate with an All Progressives Congress member, Senator Ayo Arise, who had faulted the amendment process of the Electoral Act.
Responding, Mr Arise, who is also a former Senator representing Ekiti North Senatorial District, said, “If the President says, ‘I will allow a free and fair election, there is the propensity for people to trust him more than the other candidate in this country that is currently running because he has demonstrated it times without number that he has integrity.
“For me, that is what I see in the President and that is why I am one of the strongest supporters and believers in him.”
