Group to critics: SGF cant be distracted from state matters

Published by The Nation on Wed, 17 Apr 2019

A group in Adamawa State has said the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, is currently busy with state matters and should not be distracted, but that he is within his rights to aspire to any position in the land come 2023 if he pleases.The position of the pro-SGF group was a response to a claim by some Adamawa politicians that Boss Mustapha was obsessed with political ambition towards 2023, a claim against which the counter-set of prominent Adamawa politicians speaking for Boss Mustapha, argued that the SGF was currently too occupied with important state issues, including functioning as the Chairman of the Presidential Inauguration Committee, and cannot indulge personal political ambitions.The pioneer Northeast National Vice Chairman of the APC, Umar Duhu, who anchored the SGF defense group, said, Mustaphas focus at this material time is to coordinate the winding up of President Muhammadu Buharis first term and to set the tone for the second term.The people accusing Boss Mustapha of plans to forge a joint presidential ticket in 2023 should know they are only jumping the gun for now, and are wasting their time given that he is too busy with stabilizing national affairs.Read Also:Ex-SGF Lawal, brother, others get N50m bailUmar Duhu added however that Mustapha was qualified and free to seek the highest office in the land or to run as a vice presidential candidate in 2023 as his critics had suggested, reiterating to journalists in Yola that the SGF stood tall among northern politicians to run or deputise for anybody in line with APCs power-shift arrangement.Taking a swipe at the self-styled Adamawa APC bigwigs which questioned Boss Mustaphas perceived ambition, Umar Duhu said the group was trying to create disharmony within the APC fold, but stressed that it was dangerous for someone to think that some other people were not entitled to certain positions.He said Boss Mustapha was a politician of reckon with a long history as he was presented to run along with late M.K.O Abiola by the Babagana Kingibe group in 1993.Mustaphas intimidating credentials are there. 30 years ago, the Kingibe group within the Social Democratic Party (SDP) actually presented him initially to Abiola for consideration as presidential running mate.It is therefore ridiculous for some spent force politicians to think they can cow such a formidable democratic icon into silence, he asserted.
