Kano - Maj. Hamza Al-Mustapha, the former Chief Security Officer of late Gen. Sani Abacha, said on Monday that he had no ambition to venture into politics or seek for political position in the country.
He made the remark while addressing newsmen shortly after a courtesy visit to the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero, at his palace in Kano.
“I have not decided to venture into politics now and I have not been invited into that direction.”
He said his recent visit to some states, particularly troubled areas across the country, was informed by his desire to ensure peace and unity.
“Many organisations and associations actually contacted me with invitations that took me there. I did it with a view of putting a helping hand.
“Right from 1984, I found it mandatory to help associations in support of peace and unity, and now that God has granted me freedom, I cannot say no.
“We have opened ground for reconciliation to many tribes and communities and we hope it will add colours towards achieving peace, unity and development in the country,” he said.
He noted that he would continue to respond to such calls by organisations and associations provided they were meant to foster unity and peace in the country.
