Jonathan Shot Himself in the Foot, He Could Have Defeated Buhari in Court – Galadima

Buba Galadima has said that former President Goodluck Jonathan shot himself in the foot by not taking Muhammadu Buhari to court following the outcome of the 2015 presidential election.

Galadima who was a guest on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily opined that Jonathan could have defeated Buhari in court.

“He could have successfully triumphed because of what had happened eventually from the rulings of the Supreme Court on Rivers and Akwa Ibom.

“With the benefit of insight, I think Jonathan shot himself on the foot,” Galadima argued.

The Spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential campaign organisation, noted that unlike Jonathan, Atiku has headed to court and ‘rightly so’, adding that Atiku’s move will not in any way trigger violence across the nation.

He alleged that there were malpractices in the just concluded elections and accused the ruling party of using the military to their own favour.

Galadima slammed what he termed as a military take-over of the polls, saying that “the military has no business in appearing during elections”.

Speaking further on the elections and the court move by Atiku, Galadima said that “if there are courageous, just and God-fearing Justices in this country, this election will be upturned and Atiku Abubakar will be declared the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Reacting to the possibility of violence breaking out if the Courts upturns the elections in Atiku’s favour, Galadima noted that peace is pre-meditated on justice.

He said, “If the courts do Justice, it doesn’t matter what happens after, after all it is a price that we have to pay”.
