Abacha’s CSO, Al-Mustapha speaks on running for President

Hamza Al-Mustapha, former Chief Security Officer to the late Head of State, General Sani Abacha, says he will join the presidential race if called upon by Nigerians to do so.

Al-Mustapha, a retired Major, said this on Wednesday in Kaduna in an interview shortly after a meeting with United Christian Leaders Eagle Eye Forum.

When asked if he would join 2019 presidential race, he said: “I am not going to announce myself contesting for a presidential seat, but if people say so, that is the wishes of the people.

“I am not a power-thirsty person, if I am, I would have lost my personality long before now, but when people gather to speak and the decision is by them, then it is a call to serve.

“My focus is the protection of the rights of Nigerians as provided under the law.”

Speaking on the security situation in the country and the anti-corruption war, Al-Mustapha called for the reintroduction of toll gates, which he described as an effective buffer for uncovering illegal weapons and movement of criminals.

Al-Mustapha had earlier taken a swipe at the EFCC, saying that the anti-graft agency was not fighting corruption but chasing shadows.
