- The National Working Committee (NWC) of the party also constituted other committees after its meeting at the national secretariat in Abuja.
- The decision was made due to the individual’s lack of consultation and their inability to commit due to their demanding schedule.
His candidature to join the finance committee established by the ruling All Progressives Congress was turned down by Abdulsamad Rabiu, the chairman of the BUA Group.
Prior to his nomination, Rabiu revealed that he had not been consulted in a statement released by the BUA Group on its X account on Friday.
The statement partly read, “It is important to note that our Chairman, Abdul Samad Rabiu and BUA Group have consistently adopted an apolitical stance over the years.
“This approach is integral to the nature of our business and aligns with Mr. Rabiu’s focus on fostering economic growth through BUA Group’s initiatives and philanthropic efforts through ASR Africa.
“With respect to this, we wish to inform the publishers, our partners, stakeholders, and the general public that Mr. Rabiu has decided to graciously decline the nomination/appointment.
“This decision is made in light of the fact that he was not previously consulted regarding his inclusion in the list and his inability to commit time due to his demanding schedule.”
The BUA chairman was earlier nominated by the party to serve as a member of the 34-member committee constituted on Thursday.
