The Senator representing Niger East in the National Assembly, Sani Musa, has joined the race for the national chairmanship of the All Progressive Congress.
Musa, who made public his intention at a media briefing in Abuja, on Friday, said the party needed re-engineering to meet the challenges ahead.
According to him, the problems currently confronting the party were surmountable, adding that he has the experience and commitment to provide leadership in order to bring everyone on board.
He said, “I am presenting myself as the candidate that can position our great party, the All Progressive Congress, to achieve the electoral and political outcomes necessary to ensure that we consolidate and accelerate our socio-economic transformation.
Leadership is an awesome and great responsibility that requires a high sense of innovation and vision as a mechanism to change our nation for more advancements.
If reposed with the responsibility to lead the party, I will endeavor to justify every day and in every act the trust that will be placed in me.
Bringing a new beginning to our party leadership will create a new voice and direction to APC and by extension create the best platform for an enduring leadership for our country for the good of all.”
“I am confident that I am the best candidate to lead the party to achieve our desired objectives.
My ambition is borne out of my desire to contribute positively to the nation’s growing democratic process by ensuring that we build strong political structures with the required capacity to address the challenges we face as a party and ultimately as a nation.”
Musa also said the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), has done a great job of returning the nation back on track and that the party owes him and itself a duty to ensure that his legacies endure.
While commending the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led Caretaker/ Extraordinary National Convention Planning Committee for the successes so far recorded in rebuilding the party, he said, “I will work hard to ensure that we build on that and ensure that APC becomes the political party of choice in every single ward in Nigeria.”
