She revealed this while speaking at Kwara Hotel, Ilorin, Kwara state on Wednesday, stating that he was the kind of grassroot politician she needs to lift 80 million people out of poverty.
Galadima, who is the national chairman of the ACPN, contested the 2015 presidential election, where he garnered 40,311 votes to clinch the fourth position.
He was only behind the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Muhammadu Buhari; Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Goodluck Jonathan; and Adebayo Ayeni of the African Peoples Alliance.
