PDP’s presidential campaign spokesman, Buba Galadima, has alleged that the crowds that attended President Muhammadu Buhari’s rallies were hired
He said that the APC paid not less than N20 million to the large people who attended President Buhari’s rallies
He accused the Buhari-led federal government as an administration that operates on nepotism and corruption
Buba Galadima, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s presidential campaign spokesman, on Sunday, February 3, alleged that the massive crowds that attended All Progressives Congress (APC) rallies were paid.
Galadima claimed: “Every campaign that Buhari goes to in an APC-controlled state, local governments are empowered with twenty to forty-five million naira to purchase people and bring them to these rallies, and suddenly Buhari starts addressing the crowd and they all disappear because they must fulfil the contract for which they were brought in.”
He further said: “One Local Government rally by Kwankwaso is more than the global rally that was organised for Buhari after spending nearly one billion naira.”
He accused the Buhari-led administration as a government that operates on large scale nepotism and corruption, Channels TV reports.
Galadima stated: “It is shameful that somebody who rides on the issue of corruption will raise the hand of a thief, certified crook, and say this is our candidate”.
“In Kano, you have seen the President raising the hand of a corrupt individual, a corrupt person that the whole nation has seen taking bribes, they are talking of corruption, that man belongs to them.
“They brought people from Niger, my good friend the Sultanate of Damagaram and two Governors from the Niger Republic, are already telling us that they will bring aliens to vote for them.”
Moreover, Galadima said that the recent endorsement of Atiku Abubakar, PDP’s flag bearer the Ohanaeze Ndi Igbo, Northern Elders Forum (NEF), Pan-Niger Delta forum (PANDEF) the Middle Belt Forum, and a faction of Afenifere clearly indicated unity among once rival ethnic groups.
He said: “I commend these Elders for coming out boldly to tell the world that in Atiku they have seen a candidate that will unite Nigeria.”
Meanwhile, it was reported that the governors of Zinder and Maradi from Niger Republic were among the dignitaries that attended the mega rally of President Buhari in Kano.
This was revealed in a tweet by Salihu Tanko Yakasai, the media aide of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano on Thursday, January 31.
