APC Convention: Sani Musa Reveals Why He Stepped Down For Buhari’s Candidate

An aspirant for the National Chairmanship position of the All Progressives Congress, Sani Musa, on Saturday disclosed that it was difficult for him to withdraw from the race.

Musa in an interview with Arise TV revealed why he withdraw from the race.

According to the Chairman, Senate Services Committee, he withdrew from the race for the unity of the party.

He said, “It was a very difficult decision for somebody like me because I knew the kind of popularity and followership that I had; but foremost, the interest of the party is number one.

“The supremacy of the party is important because we all subscribed to be members and we stated that we will abide by what the party comes up with.

“In my past interviews, I have always said that whatever the leader of the party who is the president of this country says; for the respect of his person, for the respect of his office, there is nothing he would ask of me that would be difficult for me to deliver.

“My followers believe in that too because we need unity in this country. The party itself is at a crossroads, I would not want to be another party that would add to the issues that are already in the party.

“We want to bring the party together; we want to build a united party that will face the opposition and opposing parties because the next general election is around the corner.

“I don’t see why my personal interest should override that of the party that is trying to create unity. I believe all others did the same. The unity of the party is greater than our collective or individual ambition. We all collectively agreed that we should unite and give Abdullahi the chance.

“You can see what is happening in the opposition about their zonal arrangements; we do not want to fall into that trap. We want a situation whereby APC will come out strong. This is the reason why I feel that the consensus can have its way. But it does not mean that those that are opposed to it cannot have their say.”
