PDP Demands Release Of Galadima, Atiku’s Spokesman



old notes governor

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP on Sunday called for the immediate release of Alhaji Buba Galadima, one of the spokesmen of its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
Condemning the arrest of Galadima, in a statement signed by its national chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, the party affirmed that there was no justification for the arrest of the vocal politician.

“I call for the immediate release of Mr. Buba Galadima by the Department of State Security, even as I remind the DSS and other security agencies, that their oath of allegiance was sworn to Nigeria and not to the All Progressive Congress or President Muhammadu Buhari.

“We as a party condemn this arrest in the strongest possible terms. Buba Galadima is a patriot. His patriotism has been previously and strongly highlighted by various Nigerians, including President Muhammadu Buhari. 

“What crime has he committed? I answer my own question and say none. Mr. Galadima is constitutionally guaranteed a right of freedom of speech and freedom after the speech. 

“The nation is currently boiling with the deaths caused by thugs of the All Progressives Congress, APC. Not one of these thugs has been arrested by the DSS. The nation was embarrassed by drone images of bullion vans laden with cash driving into the home of the National Leader of the APC and no action has been taken by the law enforcement authorities. Yet a patriot and pro-democracy activist is arrested. 

“We cannot be hoodwinked by the puppeteering of the DSS by the APC. It is obviously no coincidence that the APC Presidential Campaign Council called for the arrest of Mr. Galadima at 12 noon today (Sunday the 24th of February, 2019) and the arrest was duly effected by the DSS an hour later.”

“Nigeria will not be cowed. We have voted for democracy and as a nation, we will not be taken back to Egypt by the discredited blame centred anti democratic forces who have turned a once thriving economy into the world headquarters for extreme poverty.”

Galadima was reportedly picked up on Sunday after the spokesman of the Buhari Campaign Organisation, Mr. Festus Keyamo called for his arrest on the claim that he had prepared a video to declare Atiku winner of the presidential election.
