APC National Chair Aspirant Vows To Reconcile Lai Mohammed, Kwara Governor, Abdulrazaq
Malam Saliu Mustapha , a national chairmanship aspirant in the ruling All Progressives Congress APC, has pledged to reconcile all aggrieved forces in the party, starting from his home state, Kwara. He promised to end the rift between Nigeria’s minister of Information and Culture Lai Mohammed and Kwara State Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq.
Speaking at a press conference in Abuja, Mustapha admitted that by the design of the APC structure, governors are leaders of the party in the states.
“APC will not be a cabal. It will be an open book and with that, there will not be a lot of dissenting voices. This idea of one man show does not bode well for anyone.
“I want to be the national chairman of the APC not for the title of it but he sure I know I have put in a lot. There is room for improvement. We have something at hand now but we cannot say it is best. We can always improve on what we have”, Mustapha stated.
He said he would bring an end to the political differences among some APC gladiators in the state if and when he becomes the national chairman of the party.
“As chairman, one of my major responsibilities will be to ensure that my state, known as the State of Harmony, continues to come out stronger as an APC state. The goodwill I enjoy from all sides would help to mend fences.
“I am bringing a lot of goodwill, experience and youthful vibrancy on board. I want to see a party that promotes equity, fairness and justice. We want a party that will promote internal discipline, that will be held to account with their manifesto”, he stated.
He also asked aggrieved stakeholders of the party to support the Gov. Mai Mala Buni-led Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee CECPC to deliver on its mandate of ensuring a hitch-free national convention by February 2022.
