Mustapha who was represented by Hon. Edwin Osa Ogunbor, said:

“APC will continue its approach to politics and have a defined political culture that will have profound impact on the country's development just like President Muhammadu Buhari is putting in place legacies that will cement the party's name in Nigeria's political history.
“For us, politics of development will be our focus. It is a new brand of political culture and ideology that places emphasis on smart and good politicking as essential tool for rapid national development.

“We will adopt preventive diplomacy in crisis management. We will manage political crisis by preventing them.
“We will prevent crisis by constantly looking out for conventional and non-conventional triggers otherwise known as early warning signals across all strata of the party, and nip them in the bud promptly and firmly before they degenerate.
“But in the event that conflicts still rear their heads in spite of all, we will be prepared with a bottoms-up dispute resolution mechanism that is independent, dependable, fair, and inclusive.”

He also promised to build on the legacy of Governor Mai Mala Buni-led National Caretaker Committee, adding that from his first day in office, he will vigorously create and pursue a positive, consistent, and confident public image for the party and government.
