Galadima recalled his previous statement supporting Iyabo Obasanjo, the daughter of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, as a potential leader, citing her capabilities rather than her ethnicity or religion.

I have told you before that before my father and mother died, none of them spoke one word of Hausa, let alone Fulani, but because we don’t know each other in Nigeria, I’m looked at as Oh, Buba, he should be a Fulani man. Oh, Buba should be a Hausa man because he’s a Muslim.”CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
