Al-Mustapha urged to join 2023 presidential race

A political pressure group, Hamza Almustapha Media Awareness (HALMA), has called on retired Maj. Hamza Al-Mustapha to join the 2023 presidential race in order to tackle insecurity and other challenges facing the country.

According to reports, Al-Mustapha was the chief security officer to the late Head of State, Sani Abacha.

The group made the call on Sunday during a town hall meeting with women, youth groups and other stakeholders on the 2023 general election.

The Chairman of the group, Dr Muhammad Habib, expressed optimism that Al-Mustapha would tackle the security challenges bedeviling the country if he emerged as the next president.

In his words, “Al-Mustapha as a security expert and top government official in the past has wealth of experience and ideas on how to surmount the nation’s problems.

“When it comes to economy, he was the brain behind Petroleum Trust Fund (PTF) creation.

“And PTF has helped a lot in terms of education, infrastructure, almost every angle.”

He urged elders and youths across the country to prevail on Al-Mustapha to join the presidential race under any political party of his choice.

The Guest Speaker, Dr Babayo Suleiman of the Department of Political Science, Federal University, Kashere, Gombe State, harped on the importance of possessing Voter Registration Card (PVC).

Suleiman said the PVC provides opportunity for Nigerians who attained age 18 to register.

He said voting was important to every eligible Nigerian “because it is only through voting you will elect the leaders of your choice”.

“With the huge population in Nigeria, you may think that your single vote cannot make any change, but your vote carries much weight as everybody else,” he said.
