Buba Galadima, an associate of President Muhammadu Buhari and member of the Board of Trustees of the All Progressives Congress, has said President Buhari will leave Nigeria in pieces by 2023.
Galadima disclosed this in an interview with the PUNCH while speaking about the crisis in the All Progressive Congress, the Buhari presidency and political intrigues ahead of the 2023 general elections.
Asked, what will happen by the time Buhari leaves in 2023 and where he espies Nigeria as a nation, Galadima said
“ In pieces! That is the imagination of everybody! We are already in pieces; it is just that we have not disintegrated. It is difficult to divide Nigeria, not because it cannot be divided, but because of our own internal contradictions.
If you say the South-West should form a country, of their own, I want to assure you that Lagos will object, Ekiti people will object. They will never go back to Ibadan. If you say let those who were part of the old Eastern Region go back, I want to assure you that the ordinary Efik man, the Oron, Ibibio, Anang, Kalabari, Ekwere, Ijaw man will never accept to go back as citizens of Biafra, the ordinary Ebonyi man will never agree to be part of an Eastern Region that will take them back to Enugu. These are our internal contradictions. How do you now define the North-Central?
