A forum under the auspices of Well-wishers of Barr Boss Mustapha, Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) cutting across the 36 states of the country, warned that people should stop using the social media in propagating unfounded stories and pictures of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu with the indefatigable SGF of 2023 political ambition.
The statement signed by Hon Musa Usman Terrang said the uncalled move is not only unhealthy but is unnecessarily dragging the SGF into 2023 politics that’s untimely not good for the next level governance.
The statement said that, Boss is tied up with many national assignments that need his entire time in making sure the country is free from novel COVID-19 that he is heading as the chairman of the Presidential Task Force (PTF).
“We wish to reiterate that the SGF is busy, tied up with many National Assignments with the fight against the novel COVID-19 which has caused more harm than good and has placed a great threat to the socio-economic development is one of it; the SGF is the PTF Chairman and always committed to delivering the responsibilities of his office for better governance and service to Nigerian people.” The statement said.
The statement continued that the Well-wishers of the SGF, Barr. Boss Mustapha wishes to draw the attention of the general public on the trending social media pictures of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the SGF, Barr. Boss Mustapha with the caption “HOPE 2023” and “2023 Great Combination”.
The group cautioned the general public to desist from sharing such unfounded text; and to please ignore it calling on the security operatives to investigate and bring to book those behind such actions.
According to the forum, they are progressive minded Nigerians and well-wishers of the SGF who are really working hard in supporting him to succeed on the called assignment of SGF and the PTF chairman.
“The indefatigable SGF is busy and always committed to ensuring the success of the Muhammadu Buhari administration which tops every interest to him now and beyond.
“Consequently Forum wishes to state categorically, that the principled SGF should not be distracted by such political propaganda which is untimely and unhealthy to the governance.
“The SGF chose to deliver the mandate and the confidence reposed on him by his principal, President Muhammadu Buhari which is the first, second, third, to the tenth of his priorities.
“Anything short of these will not be tolerated by the SGF nor his well-wishers.
“We are optimistic that the SGF will not be deterred by cheap distractions until the next level of Mr President is fully delivered to Nigerians.
“At the moment, the journey to the next level is on its top gear with so many productive policies, restructuring, diversification of the economy, and socioeconomic reforms towards uplifting the over 100 million Nigerians out of poverty in the next 10 years as promised by this administration.
