2023 elections: APC chairmanship aspirant cautions against inciting comments
By Tunde Akanbi, Ilorin
A National chairmanship aspirant of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Mallam Saliu Mustapha has warned against inciting comments capable of plunging the country into another civil war and instead seek peaceful means of resolving conflicts.
This is as he argued that only a peaceful Nigeria will make the conduct of the 2023 general elections to birth a new government possible.
Mallam Saliu Mustapha disclosed this in a statement he signed and made available to newsmen.
According to the ex-deputy national chairman of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change, Nigerians regardless of their political affiliations must realize that they have no other country other than Nigeria and must therefore avoid the path that would quicken her balkanization.
The APC chieftain further called on Nigerians to reflect on Vice President Yemi Oshibajo’s remarks of the evil of war when he sighted a Justice of the Supreme Court of Rwanda queuing for food ration in a refugee camp.
The APC boss also enjoined fellow citizens to always canvass and preach peace and a united Nigeria, adding that this is the time for all lovers of peace and continued existence of Nigeria to speak out.
He appealed to the chairman of the National Peace Committee and former Head of State, Retired General Abdulsalami Abubakar alongside other elder statesmen to speak up and calm fray nerves.
Mallam Saliu Mustapha advised advocates of State Police to take advantage of the ongoing constitution amendment exercise at the National Assembly to drum support for their position.
