Government officials approached my office to sell COVID-19 palliatives –Alhaji Buba Galadima

Alhaji Buba Galadima, on a TV program alleged that government officials sell palliatives, and an undisclosed state government once approached his office to sell COVID-19 palliatives.

The elder statesman also criticized state governments for hoarding relief items donated by the Private Sector Coalition Against Covid-19 also known as CACOVID.

Alhaji Galadima made this known during a program on  AIT on Monday

“I know of a state that all the palliatives taken from the Federal Government in that state was kept in stores and they came to my office to look for buyers of such commodities,” he said.

“They said the buyers should not be from that particular state.”

When asked if he shared the information with security agents,Alhaji Buba Galadima replied, “They are listening now. Anything I say on any interview, electronic or print, it is better for the security agencies not to look at it as coming from  their enemies. It should be seen as coming from their friend, from a patriotic citizen who is sacrificing his life because what I am doing can cost me my life.”

Recall that there are reported cases of thousands of looters across the country over the weekend, who invaded several warehouses where COVID-19 palliatives were stored and carted away food items before the arrival of security operatives.

State governors had since come under fire for allegedly hoarding the relief materials but the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, on Monday, denied allegations that governors hoarded palliatives meant for distribution to Nigerians amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
