The former chief security officer (CSO) to late Gen Sani Abacha, Major Al-Mustapha (rtd) has floated a new political party.
Al-Mustapha in a statement on Thursday, April 20, announced formally the party he called Green Party of Nigeria (GPN).
He said: “Finally, the real people’s Party has landed. Please give praise to our Creator for rare beautiful gift to the people. The future is GPN and GPN is the Future.”
The party’s logo was also received from Al-Mustapha.
Recall that In 2013, Al-Mustapha said he had no ambition to venture into politics or seek for political position in the country.
He was accused of complicity in the murder of Kudirat, a wife of the presumed winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election that was annulled by former President Ibrahim Babangida, late Chief Moshood Abiola.
Al-Mustapha who was standing trial for Kudirat Abiola’s murder was sentenced to death by Mojisola Dada, justice of the Federal High Court, Lagos for murder on January 30, 2012, but was discharged and acquitted by the Court of Appeal in 2013, resulting to heated controversies.
