Questions have been raised about the APC membership of Hon. Moshood Mustapha, who allegedly worked with Bukola Saraki and Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate in the 2023 general elections.

Some members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who didn’t believe the party’s presidential candidate, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, could win the election were reported to have worked for Atiku, and Hon. Mustapha was listed.

Mr Babatunde Abubakar Tukur, the Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Alanamu Ward of Ilorin West Local Government, which is MM’s ward, in a statement, said Mustapha abandoned the APC to pitch his tent with the PDP in the last general elections.

This medium has also received reports that MM worked with the former Vice President Atiku Abubakar in the 2023 presidential election from sources who claimed he was in PDP’s campaign train across the states in the country and went on to send pictorial evidence.

But on Wednesday, February 7, Hon Muspaha’s media aide, Dr Opeyemi Aregbesola, in a statement, said her Principal is still a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), adding that the owner of the Crystal Group is not leaving the party soon.

In the statement, Dr Opeyemi didn’t refute the allegation that her Principal worked with Atiku Abubakar in the presidential election, possibly because the pictures featuring the leader of the Kwara PDP, Saraki, at one of the campaigns, have emerged on the internet.

Recently, Moshood Mustapha fell out with the APC-led Kwara State Government after his Crystal Group company could not win the legacy Kwara Hotel remodelling and rebuilding contract, which was awarded to Craneburg Construction Company Limited, which has since commenced work.

MM wrote an open letter to the APC-led government and accused it of wasting taxpayers’ money and inflating the contract’s price, which he claimed his Crystal Group could do for 3bn as against the 17.8bn the state government awarded the contract to another company.

In response to Hon Mustapha’s allegations, the state government offered Crystal Group the contract with the exact specifications given to Craneburg, the company earlier awarded the contract. But MM and Crystal Group ate their words, saying 3bn can no longer complete it.

Those who believe Moshood Mustapha worked with Atiku and is no longer a member of the APC have also used his fallout with the APC-led Kwara State Government as evidence, saying a progressive would not cast his party in bad light because he was not given a contract.

Many have reacted to MM’s APC membership claim, and some said he wanted to return to the APC after the Kwara People’s Democratic Party (PDP) didn’t welcome him as he expected.
