A former Speaker of the House of Representatives Gali Umar Na’Abba has said that he and other like-minds will not support the purported re-election bid of President Muhammadu Buhari next year.
Na’Abba, a member of the APC Board of Trustees spoke in an interview with Osasu Igbinedion which was featured on the online medium, The Cable.
The former speaker alleged that Buhari had not added value to democracy, saying the president had in November last year told APC BoT members that he would go for a second term.
While describing the present administration as “one-man” government, Na’Abba said, “I had the occasion to sit down with the president and tell him this is what is wrong. And all he told me was that things were wrong before but now, with his election, everything is right now. And I was very, very disappointed.
“A lot of people campaigned, supported him and elected him for one reason or the other. I decided to move back to APC from PDP to support him because from his utterances, I believed he wanted to add value to democracy.
“And this is three years into his administration, he doesn’t work with the party, he regards party members as evil, he doesn’t consult with anybody in the party and I am a member of the board of trustees, even though we don’t have it officially” he said.
Na’Abba also distanced himself from those endorsing the president for a second term, alleging that some party members had hijacked and pocketed the party.
