APC National Chair: Saliu Mustapha Makes In Road As Governors, Senior Party Leaders Rally Round His Candidacy

ABUJA-With varying degrees of enthusiasm as the ruling party, APC holds its National Congress towards the end of the year, senior party leaders and serving Governors have rallied behind the Turaki of Ilorin, Mallam Saliu Mustapha to emerge as the next party National Chairman.

Information reaching our news desk has it in good authority that top party chieftains and some of the serving governors have resolved to throw their support behind Saliu who many consider as the party’s best hope for the national chairmanship position.

In making efforts to see that the congress is hitch-free the National Caretaker Working Committee of the party is said to have put all measures in place for a smooth congress.

According to a top political aide to one of the North-East Governors who pleaded his name should not be mentioned, the governors and party leaders are looking forward to a fresh leadership that would not be distracted and remain focussed on the goal.

He claims winning the 2023 general elections is not a child’s play and only a committed and dedicated leadership that is ready to carry the party along under one bond can be capable of achieving such a feat.

” I can categorically tell you that my principal ( a serving Governor ) is solidly behind the Turaki of Ilorin, Saliu Mustapha. The reasons are not far-fetched, we are looking forward to a fresh leadership in our party, we need a national chairman who has a clear ideology to turn around the fortunes of the party without a single distraction, we need a chairman who would continue with the good works the National Caretaker Working Committee is currently doing and improve on its gains.

Mallam is a bridge-builder between the elders and the young, the serving Governors and Ex, party members and administrators, his candidacy is what we look forward to. Everybody in APC wants to see him emerge as the next chairman and we’re going to give him the space to do that.”

Another top aide to a serving Governor from the South who also pleaded anonymity says Mallam Saliu’s candidacy enjoys the blessings of a majority of APC Governors.

” Our Governors are looking forward to a national chairman that would not go to Abuja and be flexing muscles with everybody. We earnestly look forward to a smart and digital chairman that is proactive, he must be fair and generous and Saliu fits in. With the inroads he’s currently pulling amongst the serving governors, then I am sure he may likely emerge our next National Chairman effortlessly. ”

Not only are the Governors rallying support for Saliu Mustapha, Senators and top party leaders have also indicated concerns over his candidacy. A serving Senator and a ranking leader in the North-West, claims Mallam Saliu is hands-down and head-over-tails above his competitors.

“He’s got bigger concerns in running the affairs of our party,” he said. ” He has shown his administrative experience times without number and his loyalty to the party is 100 % sure, so why should we look elsewhere? His personality is not subject to a single controversy and Nigerians see him as a generous and committed politician who seeks after excellence, we should give him a try”

As of the last count over 11 APC chieftains have indicated an interest in becoming the next APC National Chairman.
