Declare me APC National Secretary, Barr. Mustapha urges APC NWC

By Ikechukwu Okaforadi

A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Muhammad Bello Mustapha, has urged the leadership of the party to act fast in appointing a National Secretary for the party.
Particularly, he called on the Adams Oshiomhole-led National Working Committee to ensure fairness and follow due process in appointing a national scribe to fill the vacant position.
According to him, the position has been vacant for more than six months, a development which he described as alien to the party constitution.
Mustapha, who was a former National Youth Leader of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) and core supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari since 2003, made the call during a press briefing recently.
He noted that the party needed to appoint a capable person to man the position to ensure wider acceptability of the APC across board.
Mustapha, who was the first runner up in the last APC convention to the former National Scribe, Mai Mala Buni, who is now the Governor of Yobe State, said: “It is more than six months that he won the election and there is no law in the country that says the position can be manned by his former deputy in an acting capacity. So, it is high time the party, particularly the NWC do the right thing to allow the party move forward and get wide range acceptability among Nigerians. That is my appeal to all and sundry.”
When asked what he will do differently if appointed as the National Secretary of the party, he said: “I can assure you that the party and the people of this country will witness tremendous success. The records are there. In 2003, I was appointed by the Presidential Campaign Council of ANPP as the returning officer in Adamawa State and Adamu Modibbo was there and also Hon. Tony Nwoye can attest to it.
“When I was appointed the Returning Officer, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, was the sitting VP then and Adamu Muazu Modibbo was the party gubernatorial candidate in Adamawa. We won the elections but we were denied victory, the records are there.
