Gadi wanted ‘rogue elements’ barred from ruling Nigeria — Grandson
My late gradfather, a former Bauchi State deputy governor, Garba Gadi’s, last wish for Nigerians and the All Progressives Congress (APC) is that ‘rogue elements’ should not be allowed to rule the country again,” one of the deceased’s grandsons, Alhaji Ghazali Mohammed, said in a statement issued in Abuja yesterday.
Mohammed said: “My grandfather admonished Nigerians and in particular the APC not to allow rogue elements to rule Nigeria again,” adding that “If nothing else, President Muhammadu Buhari has instituted policies designed to plug the leakages of our public finances forever.
“With transparency instituted, everything will fall in place. This is why these ‘rogue elements’ at every turn are putting obstacles on the anti-graft war being waged by President Buhari.
“They are also obstructing Buhari’s foreign loans meant to develop the country’s deficit infrastructure. They don’t want Buhari to succeed.
He said the late Garba Gadi’s “Sole worry before he died was corruption which he reasoned is at the root of Nigeria’s underdevelopment, the emergence of Boko Haram and gross unemployment.”
Mohammed, in the statement, which was issued after the burial of the septuagenarian in Azare, on Saturday, also stated that he had told him when asked about his illegal dismissal from office that he had put the episode behind.
