…Rabiu Graciously Decline Party’s Nomination, Appointment Based On Apolitical Stance
The BUA group wish to acknowledge the recent publication in several Nigerian national dailies dated December 1, 2023, regarding the purported appointment of their Chairman, Abdul Samad Rabiu, to a standing committee of a political party.
The signed information was brought to the notice of theforesight.com.ng yesterday by the release sent to our management desk in which the statement aims to holistically clarify Mr. Rabiu’s position as an individual, as well as that of BUA Group, on this matter as they extend their sincere appreciation to the ruling political party All Progressives Party (APC) for considering their Chairman for such a distinguished role.
This acknowledgment reflects the recognition of Rabiu’s commitment, and that of BUA Group, to economic prosperity and the development of our dear nation, Nigeria.
However, it is important to note that BUA Chairman, Abdul Samad Rabiu and BUA Group have consistently adopted an apolitical stance over the years.
This approach is integral to the nature of the company”s business and aligns with Mr. Rabiu’s focus on fostering economic growth through BUA Group’s initiatives and philanthropic efforts through ASR Africa.
Bearing this in mind, the group wish to inform the publishers, their 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.
BUA Chairman, Abdul Samad Rabiu, is a firm believer in leveraging business acumen and philanthropic activities to drive development and positive societal change, independent of political participation.
BUA Chairman primary contributions to Nigeria’s advancement will continue to be through strategic investments in the economy and philanthropy, rather than through political affiliations or roles.
Rabiu however remains committed to supporting governmental policies that foster the desired development as partners in progress.
BUA group trust this statement provides clarity on the matter and reaffirms it’s Chairman’s dedication to Nigeria’s progress in the roles he is most suited for—those of an entrepreneur, businessman, and philanthropist!
