For Now, I’ve No Political Ambition –Al-MustaphaFeatured, Latest News, News Monday, December 30th, 2013
The former Chief Security Officer of late General Sani Abacha, Major Hamza Al-Mustapha has dismissed insinuations linking him politics saying for now, he is not interested in political positions but to help in fostering peace and unity in some troubled states.
Al-Mustapha stated this while addressing newsmen shortly after he paid a courtesy visit to the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero, at his palace in Kano.
According to him, his recent visit to some troubled areas across the country was to ensure peace and unity, adding “many organisations and associations actually contacted me with invitations that took me there.”
His words: “I did it with a view to putting a helping hand. Right from 1984, I found it mandatory to help associations in support of peace and unity and now that God has granted me freedom, I cannot say no.
“We have opened ground for reconciliation to many tribes and communities and we hope it will add colours towards achieving peace, unity and development in the country.
“To us, the background we have is that of a country solidly united, where hopes and confidence of the people are fully restored and anchored upon progress and development.
“We are looking for a country that is firmly rooted with the God’s given resources and given the direction and taking giant strides in Africa for development and progress.”
“I have not decided to venture into politics now and I have not been invited into that direction.”
