Like governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state, Major Hamza Al-Mustapha’s campaign poster for 2019 Presidential election in Nigeria has surfaced online.
The former Chief Security Officer, CSO, to late Head of State, Gen Sani Abacha, floated a new political party ahead of the 2019 election in April.
Al-Mustapha who in 2013 said he had no intention to venture into politics, announced officially in April that the party will be called Green Party of Nigeria (GPN).
Giving the announcement, Al-Mustapha said: “Finally, the real people’s Party has landed. Please give praise to our Creator for a rare beautiful gift to the people. The future is GPN and GPN is the Future”, Al-Mustapha said at the time.
Seven (7) months after the launch of the party, his campaign poster for 2019 Presidential election under the platform of the Green Party of Nigeria (GPN), has surfaced.
The campaign poster sighted online reads: “Support Major Hamza Al-Mustapha for Nigerian President 2019, support Integrity + Selfless Services + Competence = A Better Nigeria”.
In 1993, Al-Mustapha was accused of the murder of Kudirat Abiola, the wife of late Chief Moshood Abiola
The former CSO to late Gen. Abacha “pleaded not guilty” and was sentenced to death in a ruling delivered by Justice Mojisola Dada of the Federal High Court sitting in Lagos, southwest Nigeria on January 30, 2012.
Major Al-Mustapha was however discharged and acquitted by the Court of Appeal in 2013, a year after Justice Mojisola Dada’s ruling.
