Mashood Mustapha Reaffirms Loyalty To APC

A Frontline Kwara born Politician and former representative of Ilorin West/Asa Federal Constituency in House of Representatives, Hon. Mashood Mustapha, popularly known as MM has reaffirmed loyal to All Progressives Congress.

Hon Mashood Mustapha in a statement issued by his Media Aide, Dr Opeyemi Aregbesola on Thursday, debunked claims that he is planning to leave APC over Kwara Hotels concession debacle.

MM said he remains a bonafide member of the APC, noting that the issue of Kwara Hotels concession is purely business and, therefore, has no political undertone.

According to him, Over the past couple of days, there have been insinuations that Hon. Mashood Mustapha is planning to jump ship following the informal termination of the Fix and Operate Concession of Kwara Hotels granted to his company, Crystal Group, by the Kwara State Government. The rumors are not only laughable but also a figment of the peddlers' imagination. MM is one of the few politicians who are consistent and stand firmly for what they believe in.

She said MM is one of the major forces behind the unity and stability of the APC in his ward, local government, and the state at large. 

Aregbesola noted MM has written his name in gold in the hearts of well-meaning Kwarans following his invaluable contribution to the success of the Otoge movement in 2019.

"It's on record that MM placed the interest of his party above his personal interest during the 2018 APC Governorship primary election where he was disqualified unjustly. Instead of proceeding to court, MM rallied support for the party's governorship candidate, Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, who later emerged as the governor of Kwara State in 2019.

"It is, therefore, preposterous to assume that someone who has gone to such great lengths for the success of the party will suddenly exit the party over a mundane issue like hotel concession. MM does not mix business with politics. Hence, his stand on following the due process.

"MM's open letter was not meant to embarrass anyone. Rather, it was an avenue to vent his displeasure over how the government handled the issue. The fact that a high-ranking member of the APC was treated in such a manner leaves much to be desired, especially, since his expertise in the field of hospitality cannot be questioned.
