There is no gentleman in politics – Galadima  


Estranged friend of President Muhammadu Buhari, Buba Galadima, said Nigeria’s politics are practised by ruffians and dishonourable people.

The chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, made this assertion in an interview he granted The Sun in reference to purported gentlemen agreement reached by titans of the main opposition and the ruling All Progressives Congress on the issue of zoning the 2023 presidency.

Galadima told the paper: “I also hear some people talking about gentleman agreement, but who is the author of such agreement? If it is between PDP and APC, that’s their business, it is not binding on other political parties. Who is a gentleman in Nigerian politics? What I  believe is that if we are doing democracy, let’s be doing democracy in true practice, and if we are doing arrangee politics, then let’s do arrangee politics. But in all honesty, I believe we should let people decide who they want  as their leaders, and not any imposition or arrangee  politics.”
