BUA Group Chairman rejects APC’s appointment


In a recent report, BUA International Limited’s Chairman was said to have been appointed to a standing committee of the All Progressive Congress( APC).

However, the organization, in a statement released titled ‘‘Clarification on the appointment to APC standing committee on Finance.’’ The company cleared its chairman of not accepting such a political appointment.

The statement reads in part,  ‘‘We extend our sincere appreciation to the APC for considering our Chairman for such a distinguished role. This acknowledgement reflects the recognition of his commitment, and that of BUA Group, to economic prosperity and the development of our dear nation, Nigeria.’’

‘‘However, it is important to note that our Chairman, Abdul Samad Rabiu, and BUA Group have consistently adopted an apolitical stance over the years. This approach is integral to the nature of our business and aligns with Mr Rabiu’s focus on fostering economic growth through BUA Group’s initiatives and philanthropic efforts through ASR Africa. With respect to this, we wish to inform the publishers, our partners, stakeholders, and the general public that Mr Rabiu has decided to graciously decline the nomination/appointment.’’ 

In the statement, the company stated that ‘‘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.’’

‘‘Our 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. His 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. He, however, remains committed to supporting governmental policies that foster the desired development as partners in progress.’’
