The race to succeed Adams Oshiomhole as the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has started in earnest with a serving senator indicating his interest in the plum job.
Senator Mohammed Sani Musa, representing Niger East Senatorial District of Niger State, has thrown his hat into the ring to head the ruling party. He hinged his interest on the need to bring new vision and direction to the party.
Declaring his intention in Minna, Musa explained that he has already gotten the support of the state, especially from Governor Abubakar Sani Bello.
“I have the backing of relevant stakeholders in the state. I also have the support of majority of the members of the National Assembly, especially the Senators and many APC governors. With their support I will emerge the next National Chairman of the APC,” Senator Musa said.
He said that as the chairman of the ruling party, he intends to bring new vision and direction to make the APC a formidable and unbeatable party.
“I want to bring a new vision, new direction in the running of the APC so as to build the most acceptable platform that will continue to foster democratic tenets for constructive development and governance,” he said.
The Senator further explained the condition for being the Chairman is not only limited to being a former governor, but being a person with immense capability and political sagacity to manage the complexity of a big party like the APC.
