The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), Babatunde Akinteye has hailed a chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Hannatu Musawa, over her contributions to the victory of Bola Tinubu at the hotly-contested presidential election of February 25, 2023.

Musawa, an England trained lawyer, is the Deputy spokesperson of the APC.

NANS in a statement by its Vice President of External Affairs, Akinteye thanked the ruling party chieftain for proving herself to be dependable during the presidential election.

According to him, Musawa was all over the media before the poll, defending the proclaiming the gospel according to Tinubu and spreading the goodnews of the APC to as many as care to listen.

He also called on Tinubu to appoint her as member of his cabinet, describing her as “friend of the students”.

Akinteye said Musawa is a dedicated and hardworking party leader who worked tirelessly and round the clock to ensure the party’s victory” at the presidential poll.

The statement read, “There is a maxim that says “what a man can do, a woman can do better”. This is the case of Alhaja Musawa. She has proven via her uncommon energy that she’s a woman of substance.

“Virtuous and hardworking women are rare to come by, especially in an era where many women are always cutting corners via obnoxious means to get to the top or to even make ends meet. Hannatu has chosen to be different and she has stood. She has shown that a woman can be successful as a great mum, an accomplished business woman and a politician to reckon with.

“As a national student leader of NANS -who has gone round the 36 states of the federation charting the course of the Nigerian Students, I have seen and many young people (especially in Katsina State and Abuja), who have chosen Hannatu Musawa as their role model and mentor. This is unconnected to her achievements and how she’s been able to manage her life without leaving any area uncatered for.

“Hannatu, an England-trained lawyer and a lawyer of the Supreme court in Nigeria, is Principal Partner of two law firms – Laurus Lex Legal Practice and Hanny Musawa & Associates in Abuja. She made her mark in the legal department when she was on the opposition’s legal team of President Muhammadu Buhari against Chief Olusegun Obasanjo both in 2003 and 2007 after the general elections. She has been there and her record speaks volume.

“Hanny is a political activist with a difference. This could be seen in her dispositions over time, most especially in this gone pre-election era where she raised her voice and was able to douse the tension wrapped around the controversial Muslim-Muslim ticket of the All Progressive Congress (APC). She proclaimed that ASIWAJU IS COMING and ASIWAJU CAME. She was all over the media, defending the proclaiming the gospel according to Bola Ahmed Tinubu and spreading the good news of the APC to as many as care to listen.

“She also expressed her political sagacity as she made the APC PCC list, not just as a member but as the Deputy Director of Pubic Affairs and the Deputy Spokesperson. In the last general elections, her personal participation and contribution can be conspicuously felt and her personal and collective input to the victory recorded in the presidential election by the APC can never be overemphasized. Hannatu is a political juggernaut.

“As a model to the young people both in her state and in the country at large, her positive influence on the progress of the Nigerian Students has been unquantifiable. She has been supportive of the Nigerian Students in terms of providing welfare packages for students via her annual bursary awards to students in their hundreds and several intervention funding and material supports that we receive from her from time to time are additional feathers to her cap of philanthropy. Also, her words of encouragement and motivation at all times have taken us this far in the union and we cannot but hold her in high esteem always.

“Many other students leaders and I in the Nigerian political space will be looking forward to seeing Alhaja Hannatu Musawa represent us on higher grounds(political and otherwise) because we know what she’s made of, what she represents and what she can deliver. With people like her, Nigeria still has hope of a brighter future.”
