The presidential candidate of the Action Alliance (AA), Hamza Al-Mustapha, could not hold back his tears as he lamented the state of security in Nigeria.
The former Chief Security Officer (CSO) to late General Sani Abacha sobbed as he received a coalition of northern Christian women at his Abuja residence on Saturday.
“What Nigeria wants now is leadership.
“We have to get out of where we are and people will come and use the name of religion to say ‘Because he is a Muslim, he can not be this; because he is a Christian, he can not be this,’” Hamza Al-Mustapha said at the meeting.
“These are ingredients that killed Nigeria yesterday that they are also using to kill Nigeria tomorrow. We can’t accept that.
“I am seated next to you; you are my sister. Amongst you are mothers. We would die protecting you.”
Hamza Al-Mustapha also accused some unnamed individuals of attempting to destabilize the country.
“We as a country have been taken for a ride. God Almighty exposed some of us, almost as teenagers, I was 19 years old when I began to know power play in Nigeria,” Al-Mustapha added.
“They are only interested in destroying us the more and people don’t understand.”
