The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has reacted to the claims by a former chieftain of the party, Alhaji Buba Galadima, to the effect that the APC and the Presidency used the military and other state actors to rig the just concluded presidential election in favour of the incumbent, Muhammadu Buhari.
While falling short of declaring Galadima a persona non grata, the National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, told Sunday Vanguard that the former Managing Director of the Nigeria Ports Authority (NPA) simply doesn’t exist.
Galadima, in a recent interview session accused the Presidency of coercing the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), to do its bidding by subverting its own rules.
“I don’t respond to Buba Galadima”. He does not exist as far as I am concerned. I don’t confer recognition on somebody like him. I don’t even read whatever he says nor listen or watch him. It doesn’t bother me in any way. It is people who have time for him that are giving him the privilege of all that”, Issa-Onilu said.
