A member of the Board of Trustees, BoT, of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and a close ally of President Muhammadu Buhari right from the days in the defunct Congress for Progressive Change, CPC, Buba Galadima, has stated that nothing has changed in terms of corruption and looting of public funds in the present government.
He said, “People are just stealing left, right and centre because of their initial fear that when this government comes in, they would be chased is no more there. So, it is business as usual in everything.”
He said Nigeria is not only on a reverse gear, but on a standstill.
Galadima was speaking with the Tribune at the weekend, where he noted that no aspect of the economy has witnessed development so far, saying that, “At least if it is not on a reverse gear it is on a standstill.”
According to him, some elements of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, are still controlling affairs in the country.
“People who call the shots for 16 years still call the shots. So, how do you expect the government to move forward? Talk to any of the ministers individually and hear them talk.
“In all human endeavours, there is no development. A lot of money was pumped into the economy and one is not seeing the impact of the money that was put into the economy.
“The reason is simple, the government of change has not changed the personnel of those they call names every day.
“They only decide they are giving money and they pay themselves because nobody has checked or cross checked or investigated what commitment the previous government held.”
