APC apol­o­gises to dis­qual­i­fied Kwara gov’ship as­pi­rants

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Romoke W. Ah­mad, Ilorin

The Na­tional Work­ing Com­mit­tee (NWC) of the APC has apol­o­gised to two of the party’s gov­er­nor­ship as­pi­rants in Kwara State, Malam Saliu Mustapha and Hon. Mos­hood Mustapha, over the unau­tho­rised an­nounce­ment of their dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion dur­ing the re­cent di­rect pri­mary con­ducted for the party’s gov­er­nor­ship in the state.

In an apol­ogy let­ter per­son­ally signed and is­sued to the duo by the Na­tional Chair­man of the party, Com­rade Adams Osh­iom­hole, the party said both as­pi­rants were cleared by the NWCap­pointed screen­ing panel as gov­er­nor­ship as­pi­rants to con­test for the pri­mary, but that their dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion was er­ro­neously an­nounced by an un­known source when vot­ing was mid­way.

The party, ac­cord­ing to Com­rade Osh­iom­hole, re­gret­ted the em­bar­rass­ing mis­chief di­rected at the gov­er­nor­ship as­pi­rants dur­ing the pri­mary by a face­less in­di­vid­ual.

“The in­ci­dent at the gov­er­nor­ship pri­mary elec­tion and the sub­se­quent em­bar­rass­ing mis­chief di­rected at your es­teemed per­sons by the face­less in­di­vid­ual in the name of the party is deeply re­gret­ted.

“The party re­gards you as an out­stand­ing and loyal stake­holder and leader as we con­tinue to unify and strengthen the party, par­tic­u­larly in Kwara State. I trust that this un­for­tu­nate in­ci­dent will not in any way weaken your re­solve to con­tribute and sus­tain your valu­able sup­port in the shared com­mit­ment and de­ter­mi­na­tion to col­lec­tively work with oth­ers to en­throne new po­lit­i­cal or­der in Kwara State in the 2019 elec­tions,” Osh­iom­hole said.

Hon. Mos­hood Mustapha said he ac­cepted the apol­ogy in good faith and in the in­ter­est of the party.
