- Hamza Al-Mustapha has faulted the actions of some leaders in Nigeria
- The former security chief, however, stopped short of mentioning names of the leaders he criticised
- Al-Mustapha said Nigerian youths have a role to play in promoting unity
Hamza Al-Mustapha, a former Chief Security Officer (CSO) to the late General Sani Abacha has alleged that some Nigerian leaders are destroying the country.
The retired army officer made the claim during his speech at a conference organised by the National Youth Movement for rebuilding Nigeria, The Nation reported.
“Some of our leaders were not only prone to patronage against the country, now some of them are partners in this distractive mission on Nigerians.
“Most of our leaders who have allowed themselves for patronage, in this destructive mission are doing so in leadership. There are some other things hidden by God Almighty that they do not know yet, and that is the point of happiness that we have."
He stated that unity is the measure youths can use in defeating iigger enemies. He also pointed out that sacrifices are needed to provide good leadership and direction for the country.
Meanwhile, with the conversation on President Muhammadu Buhari's successor taking a central stage, a group has inaugurated a steering committee to begin a search for the country's new leader.
The northern group, Progressive Movement for Democracy (PDM), made this known on Saturday, November 28, saying the committee has been given the mandate to provide a "credible and reputable candidate" with the north interest.
Speaking during the inauguration of the committee, the group's leader, Muhammad Auwal Musa, said the north is tired of being the epicentre of poverty and insecurity in the country.
In another news, the failure of the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to announce the zone that would produce the presidential standard-bearer in 2023 has pitched the leaders of the party against one another.
The Nation reports that the National Working Committee (NWC) of the PDP has come under increasing pressure to declare its position on the zoning system.
