2019: R-APC Will Determine Next President - Galadima
The leadership of the new splinter group in the All Progressives Congress (APC), the Reformed All Progressives Congress (r-APC) has vowed that no one will win the presidential election in 2019 without its endorsement.
The group, whose support base is mainly from the New Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP) political bloc in the APC, last Thursday formally declared its existence and listed several national and state officers of the faction.
Speaking in an interview on Saturday, National Chairman of r-APC, Buba Galadima said that one of the reasons for the emergence of the faction was the failure of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration to fulfill the promises made to the people.
Galadima, who is regarded as a very close ally of President Buhari’s until lately, said the President betrayed him by abandoning him and others who were part of the political struggle to make him President.
He said the President had disappointed those of them that gave him support because he was unable to perform.
"He betrayed me on the agreement to better the lives of Nigerians, to bring reconciliation to Nigerians, to build the economy, to build the infrastructure,” he said.
The rAPC Chairman said that the only way President Buhari could get the support of Nigerians for his second term bid was if he “performs and is able to deliver dividends of democracy according to the party’s manifesto.”
