Salihu Mustapha, an All Progressives Congress (APC) chairmanship aspirant, has said that he’ll be fair and just in handling the affairs of the party, if made chairman.
Mustapha said he has what it takes to move the party to a new level, adding that he would work towards reconciling factions.
The once deputy national chairman of the Congress for Progressives Change (CPC), stressed that he’d promote equity and ensure everybody is carried along.
According to TheCable, Mustapha revealed this when he spoke with journalists on Friday.
He said: “I have been endorsed by every well-meaning stakeholder; that is why I am motivated in this race.
“As a former deputy national chairman of CPC, I led CPC to the merger. So, nobody is older than me in Kwara APC. They all met me in the party.
“I have retained that neutrality and I’m hoping that given the opportunity to be chairman of the party will be my first legal step on reconciling the factions in the party. We need all hands on deck.
“Being a key player in how the merger came about, I decided to step into the arena for the post of APC national chairman because I believe we don’t have the best.
“I have gathered enough experience and enough goodwill. I want to see a party where there is fairness, equity and justice, not a party where there is imposition.”
Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari endorsed February 2022 for the APC national convention and this event will be where the chairman of the party will be elected.
