Council backs Senator Musa for APC National Chairman
Chairman of the Senator Mohammed Sani Musa Advisory Council, Alhaji Babasule Bissala Suleja, has said the deluge of calls for the Niger East lawmaker to contest the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairmanship seat is a clear manifestation of his sterling qualities as a leader.
Bissala Suleja, who addressed the press during the week, said Senator Musa is the only one that is capable of bringing to the table refinement in politics; the kind, APC as an entrenched party needs.
While stressing the resolve of the council and all well-meaning APC members in Niger State to work assiduously for the actualisation of the lawmaker’s bid, he said the stakeholders and Nigerians want a more robust APC, which Senator Musa stands to offer.
He said, “We are not surprised that the calls for him to be the National Chairman of our great party are growing. He does not belong to the class of a typical Nigerian politician that must manipulate or engage in aberrations to gain relevance, he is indeed the breath of fresh air from bad politics. It is, therefore, the kind of leader that APC needs at this time.
“It is, therefore, our strong conviction that of all the people angling for the National Chairman Senator Sani Musa is the only one that is capable of bringing to the table refinement in politics; the kind, APC as a party entrenched.”
“We in the council, therefore, want to state categorically that we support Senator Sani Musa desire to be the National Chairman of APC.”
Meanwhile, Senator Sani Musa representing Niger East Senatorial district says he is not aware that President Muhammadu Buhari has declined assent to the Electoral Act Amendment Bill to the National Assembly.
He spoke against the backdrop of the report in a national daily that President Buhari withhold has returned the proposed legislation which contained among others the need to compel the political parties to adopt the direct primary mode in the selection of candidates vying for elective seats in the country to the National Assembly after declining assent to it.
Sani who was a member of the National Assembly Harmonisation Committee on the bill said: “As a senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, I speak on this issue based on facts and I work with facts. My presiding officer has not read any communication from Mr President as regards the electoral Act. So, I don’t think I will be able to make any comments regarding that issue.”
