Chief Security Officer (CSO) to the late military Head of State, Gen. Sani Abacha, Major Hamza Al Mustapha, has sensationally told how he was deceived by some unnamed politicians into preparing for the presidential race in 2019, but had to withdraw when the reality dawned on him.
“I was to participate in 2019 presidential election on the understanding that certain people were not to contest in the election; I had to decline when I learnt that the people were contesting after given their words,” he told the News Agency of Nigeria on Sunday.
Describing the defunct Green Party which he founded as a party that has to do with the future of Nigeria, Al Mustapha said he initiated the party for the youth, women, the poor and people living with disabilities.
“Having criss-cross from the North to the South and after meeting this class of Nigerians who are mostly neglected, I decided to form a party that will create opportunities for the Nigerian youths to actualise their potential.
I did it for strategic reason of having investments on the younger ones.
“The word Green Party has many connotations and so I made contacts with green institutions across the world towards creating opportunities for Nigerian youths,” Al Mustapha said, adding that the aim was to empower Nigerian youths with skills towards self reliance.
However, he says since the Green Party was among those affected by Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) delisting of parties, he would move somewhere.
“If you want to hear from me, you have to wait until the end of 2021, you will see us visibly somewhere then,” he assured.
Speaking further on the Green Party, Al Mustapha said, “I spoke with the Green Party in Germany with the aim of getting funding for training of our youths on skills acquisition. I also made contact with individuals in Korea and China towards the same aim of empowering our youths with skills. All these cummulated into the formation of the party”.
