A youth group under the aegis of APC concerned youth in Adamawa has on Monday organized dinner/Iftar in honour of Comrade Mustapha Salihu, the newly elected national vice chairman north east of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
The youths who turn in their numbers said they hold the dinner to celebrate one of their own who by dint of hard-work has become their leading light and good ambassador.
Thanking the organizers for their support and recognition of a goal getter, the chairman of APC in Adamawa State, Ibrahim Bilal, said, the gesture was timely
Bilal who was represented by his deputy Samaila Taddaus appreciated the role Comrade Mustapha Salihu played in the return of the present exco from ward to state levels.
He urged the APC family to continue to support the celebrant for more benefits to accrue to the north east adding that because of his leadership qualities, the people of the north east entrusted him with leading the party at the geo-political level for the second time.
Bilal noted that the intervention of Salihu at a time when many thought the party will implode was responsible for the renewed unity in the party adding that his reelection as national vice chairman north east of APC is a payback to the sacrifices he made to the party.
Also extolling the good virtues of the celebrant, the spokesman of APC, Abdullahi Mohammed, said the victory of Comrade Mustapha Salihu is a reward for his selflessness, doggedness and commitment to the party.
He said majority of the exco from the ward up to the state levels were beneficiaries of Comrade Mustapha Salihu who is one of the brains behind the return of former excos of the party.
“The victory of Mustapha Salihu is a reward from God for the great role he played in the return of the former exco from ward to state levels,” he said.
