  Buba Galadima, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and perhaps the biggest critic of Buhari’s government, has claimed that he was offered ministerial appointments by Obasanjo and Late Yar'adua administrations.

Galadima, in an exclusive interview with The Vanguard, opened up on why he attacks Buhari’s regime, saying he is not interested in any position in Buhari’s government.

According to him, "People have forgotten that I was one single individual that took Obasanjo and Yar Adua government to task.

"I have not even done to Buhari half of what I did to Obasanjo and Yar Adua and the PDP government. All these have been forgotten because I was seen to be fighting Buhari’s government and therefore, I am a bad person.

"Obasanjo, Yar Adua and Jonathan arrested me, five good times and charged me for treason. I was put underground. I just laugh when people say I was doing this because I was not given political appointment.

"It is on record that Obasanjo’s government offered me appointment three times, Yar Adua government offered me appointment two times.

"Obasanjo’s government offered me ministerial positions three times, Yar Adua government asked me to take FCT minister but I didn’t. Which position would Buhari have given me?"
