APC Congres:Why Saliu Mustapha Is Trending And Keeps Earning Endorsements As Buhari Speaks On Party Convention

The All Progressives Congress, APC has tentatively fixed its national congress for February and it is expected that the party congress would birth a new National Working Committee, NWC of the party that ought to hit the ground running ahead of the fast-approaching 2023 general elections.

Aside from the politicking and political realignment taking place the contest is meant to promote team building and party cohesion. It is also designed like a school debate to bring out the best ideas amongst the contestants.

The past few weeks have seen an increase in the support base of a frontline aspirant gunning for the National Chairmanship position of the APC, Mallam Saliu Mustapha.  The Turaki of Ilorin is currently enjoying outstanding support from party stakeholders across the six geo-political zones.

What is so remarkable about his aspiration that his name is currently on the lips of every party member?

Leadership Qualities.

According to the CPC bloc in APC they believe strongly in the capacity of Mustapha to lead the APC at the national level citing examples of his leadership qualities demonstrated between 2010 – 2015.

The CPC is one of the legacy parties that fused together to evolve the APC. Saliu Mustapha’s leadership antecedents seem to be a major criterion favouring his ambition.

Doing Things Differently.

There is also the school of thought within the APC that feels strongly that Saliu Mustapha’s ability to do things differently is what the party needs now.

“We see you as the hope of millions of APC members who are looking forward to a different way of doing things and we are giving you maximum backing even though one of our own is also in the race.

You are indeed the bridge between the old and younger generation of party members and because you have no baggage we are willing to take our chances on your candidacy.”

Those were the words of Phillip Dada a former SSG to the Nasarrawa State Government,  who recently paid an endorsement visit to Mustapha at his Abuja office.

His Youthful Disposition.

Saliu Mustapha happens to be the youngest contestant for the position of APC National Chairman with a desirable record of over a decade of political leadership. They see him as one who is the perfect bridge between the old and the young.

Evidently, thousands of party members have joined in supporting Mustapha, who arrived on the chairmanship campaign stage with the message of Hope, Unity, Faith and Pragmatic leadership.

The major bane of internal crisis in Nigeria political parties centres around greed, corruption, godfatherism, tribalism and religion.

Saliu Mustapha has an enviable track record of being a detribalised political leader that has no single form of corruption attached to his youthful personality.

Meanwhile, President Buhari has warned the APC to put its house in order ahead of the planned convention or else risk losing to the opposition parties. In a recent interview with NTA, the president was quoted as saying.

“We have a time frame for the national convention, we have to work because the four-year circle is constitutional. It cannot be interfered with by anybody. So if the party couldn’t agree, then the opposition can take over.”

Finally, someone is inspiring the party to travel a path that would lead to better days, better party organization and hopefully a more united and indivisible party. Most party members seem ready to take on the journey,

With the stakes, this high in history, the next APC national party chairman is going to need character and a lot of it to succeed.
