Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress
A former aide to late ex-military Head of State, General Sani Abacha, says he has no regrets working with the late military dictator.
Al-Mustapha who is the presidential candidate of the Action Alliance (AA) in the 2023 general election made the declaration yesterday while appearing as a guest on Channels Television’s Politics Today.
“I have no regret, once you join the military, you should be open-minded to work anywhere,” Major Al-Mustapha proclaimed.
He added that “you could be posted to the north-pole, you could be posted ton the south-pole and you can be in the worst part of the world or worst part of the country, it is experience.”
“I have had my personal destiny and my personal destiny took me to where I served, all I want is – wherever you send me to, I will serve and you will see the distinct difference and I will leave it there for younger generations to come, to learn there from and to enhance the professionalism and status of the service I belong to.”
While disclosing that he never canvassed to be posted anywhere, Major Al-Mustapha said the army saw in him something valuable and posted him to all the places he worked including in the office of the late head of state where he stressed that his life was laid down there and sacrifices were made for the nation, most of which are indelible in the annals of Nigerian history.
