Buba Galadima, the top politician and staunch critic of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, says the North will endorse a candidate for the 2023 presidential election from the southern parts of the country, but certainly not because he is an Igbo man.
Galadima, who spoke on Monday, November 16, in an interview on the Arise Television Morning Show, said he was strictly against the “Igbo presidency” because it would not sit well with the Northerners.
Galadima revealed that he has a lot of friends from the South East, but he will never support a candidate who would just want to be president of the Igbo nation in 2023.
“I have a lot of friends from the South East, I can vote for any of them if they present themselves but I am not agreeing to Igbo presidency.”
Galadima also urged the Federal Government to unfreeze the bank accounts of activists and promoters of #EndSARS who were frozen following the protests that later turned violent.
Galadima said the government’s decision to freeze the accounts of the protest organizers was unconstitutional.
President Muhammadu Buhari’s former ally said the government should unblock the accounts of those affected and allow them to carry on as Nigerians with their usual activities.
He said, “What the government has done is not right. It has no such right or powers to block bonafide Nigerians from travelling out of the country or from accessing their (bank) accounts. Blocked for what? What have they done?
“These young men were peacefully protesting the actions, omissions or commissions of government. Why do you, after you persuaded them or after agents of government allegedly attacked or killed them, follow this draconian disposition of blocking their accounts? That is not constitutional.
“I’m sending this message to Mr President whether he knows or he doesn’t know, let him be shown what I am saying. His people have no right to do what they are doing. Please, they should desist and unblock the accounts of these young people and allow them to carry on with their normal activities as Nigerians. You cannot harass them, we are in a democracy, we are not in a military regime,” Galadima noted.
