Buba Galadima, a All Progressives Congress chieftain, has accused an undisclosed state of diversion of COVID-19 palliatives meant for the its residents.
The former National Secretary of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) who made the explosive revelation on an AIT programme on Monday, recounted how the government officials once approached his office to sell the palliatives.
This is coming in the wake of several allegations of hoarding made against some federating units. The elder statesman also lambasted state governments hoarding relief items donated by the Private Sector Coalition Against Covid-19 also known as CACOVID.
“I know of a state, where all the palliatives taken from the Federal government were kept in stores and they came to my office looking for buyers for those commodities and they said the buyers must not be from that state,” he said.

Galadima alleged that the state also sponsored thugs to Abuja during the End SARS protest.
When asked if he shared the information with security agents, he 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.”
Over the weekend, thousands of looters have 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 meant for distribution to Nigerians amid the COVID-19 pandemic but the Nigeria Governors on Monday, strongly denied allegations.
