An associate of President Muhamadu Buhari, Mallam Saliu Mustapha, has said that the meeting of some leaders of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is capable of dousing the ongoing tension in the country.

Mustapha maintained that the meeting would go a long way to strengthen the unity and peaceful co-existence among various groups in the country.

Saga Gist recalls that some leaders of APC, among who are APC National Leader, Bola Tinubu; Chief Bisi Akande, Segun Osoba, Governors Babajide Sanwo-Olu (Lagos), Dapo Abiodun (Ogun), Gboyega Oyetola (Osun); and Speaker, House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, had on Sunday held a stakeholders meeting in Lagos.

The APC chieftains in their resolutions also disagreed with Sunday Adeyemo (Sunday Igboho) on his call for Yoruba nation.

Mustapha in his reaction, described the call for religious and ethnic unity in the country by the APC leaders as not only patriotic, but also timely.

The former Deputy National Chairman of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), in a statement on Monday, commended Tinubu, Akande and other leaders of the party for their steadfastness.

He insisted that the 9-point resolutions by the APC chieftains were capable of dousing tension in the country and stabilizing the polity.

Mustapha, who is an aspirant for the APC National Chairman in the party’s forthcoming National Convention, appealed to other leaders from other regions to take a cue from the party’s stakeholders in the South-West to douse the tension in their respective regions.

Mustapha said, “I commend the leaders of the All Progressives Congress and other stakeholders from the South-West, led by Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, for their well thought out resolution on the nation’s polity after their memorable meeting today in Lagos.

“Their positions as contained in the communique are capable of stabilizing the polity at this critical time in the life of the country. Their bold call for religious and ethnic unity in the country is not only patriotic, but also timely.”

Mustapha, while speaking further, maintained that the South West remained an important bloc in the Nigerian project. He added that all politicians have a responsibility to de-escalate ongoing tension in their respective zones.

“It is needless to say that the South-West remains a very important bloc in the Nigerian project, given its abundant human and natural resources. I find it heartwarming, therefore, that our party leaders from the region have resisted and spoken against separatist agitations and hate speeches that are nitpicking, destabilising and sometimes downright treacherous.

“The position of the South-West leaders is not only prompt, consistent and credible but also offers a rapid recognition of the danger at hand. It will, no doubt, inspire a sense of purpose among the citizens in the region.

“This is the kind of rhetoric that is expected of the political leaders in the country. I therefore urge other leaders, from other regions, to take a cue from our party’s stakeholders in the South-West to douse the tension in their respective regions.”

“We all have a responsibility to de-escalate the situation, because at the end of the day, if Nigeria works, it works for all. The leaders of the APC in the South-West have led the way, and I’m sure posterity has recorded it. It will never be forgotten,” he added.
