Engr. Buba Galadima, the Chairman of the Reformed All Progressives Congress (r-APC), was reportedly involved in an accident which occurred along Hadeija-Kano Road.
It was gathered that the R-APC Chairman was in company of his son, Sadiq Galadimma, a relative Mohammed Galadima and two others, while on his way home from Yobe state on Monday, where he had gone to condole with his brother who lost his daughter.
NAN reported that the Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV), which Galadima was travelling in, somersaulted several times. The cause of accident could not be confirmed immediately, but all the occupants of the vehicle survived and were driven to Kano for medical checks.
The Reformed-All Progressives Congress had on Sunday said it was too late for President Muhammadu Buhari to start dangling juicy carrots, before its members in order to stop their defection from the ruling APC.
The R-APC, which stated this in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kassim Afegbua, took a swipe at the President and the APC. The APC faction stated that the Buhari government was not a promise keeper because it had not fulfilled what it promised Nigerians during the electioneering in 2014 and 2015. In the last one week, Buhari and the APC had intensified efforts to prevent the defection of the R-APC members.
Sunday PUNCH had reported that the APC had in a last-ditch effort to stop the defection of the R-APC senators and members of the House of Representatives, offered the lawmakers automatic tickets to contest the 2019 elections.
According to the report, R-APC lawmakers will defect on Thursday, if the APC does not put the promise of the automatic tickets they are being offered in writing. Also last Thursday, Buhari met with the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, at the Presidential Villa, where he was reported to have pleaded with Saraki not to leave the APC.
