He was also a former Director-General of the Nigeria Maritime Agency (NMA) (1996 – 1998), before being appointed the National Secretary of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) formed in the run-up to the 2011 national elections.

He was also one of the nine signatories that signed the merger agreement between some political parties that came together to form the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), which President Buhari used as a platform for his election in 2015.

Since then his relationship with the president has goner soar. AMCON in a statement issued in Abuja on Tuesday said the Federal High Court in Abuja issued an order for it to take over Gladima’s properties, including his private residence and company, over alleged N900 million indebtedness.

The order followed a ruling in suit No. FHC/ABJ/CS/1136/2019 against Bedko Nigeria Limited and Mr Galadima, AMCON said.

Reacting to the said court order, Galadima denied knowledge of the allegations of indebtedness against him and his company.

Onochie took to her Twitter page to react to the development: “Breaking News! AMCON has taken possession of Buba Galadima’s House, on the order of an Abuja High Court. Now we know why he’s been attacking the government. When they constantly insult Pres @MBuhari, just know that they are after something or something is after them What a day!.

She also reacted to the seven-year jail term given to Olisa Metuh, a former Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).


“OLISE METUH BAGS 7 YEARS Thank you to our team at the @officialEFCC Thank you to Justice Okon Abang who sat through and saw through all the drama and insults on his person and his court Thank you to Pres@MBuhari  who is leading Nigerians in the war against Corruption,” she wrote.
