As a former pilot, Sirika is a member of the Senate Committee on Aviation. He bares his mind, undisguised, about how not to own a private aircraft through corrupt means. He also spoke about other issues bordering on piloting and the Aviation sector, in an interview with Jamila Nuhu Musa and Augustine Aminu. He also spoke on President Jonathan’s poor grasp of his brief and on a number topical issue.[2]

On the other hand, Nigeria cannot make the desired progress in the comity of nations under the leadership of the ruling People's Democratic Party, a Congress for Progressive Change lawmaker, Senator Hadi Sirika, has said. Speaking in an exclusive interview with LEADERSHIP WEEKEND, Sirika, who represents Katsina North senatorial district of Katsina State, said that the party had run out of ideas on how to move the nation forward despite leading the country in the last 13 years.[3] In his interview with Soni Daniel and Ruth Choji, Sirika, a pilot and long standing ally of former Head of State, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, speaks on how to enthrone credible and responsive leadership in Nigeria and how to salvage the Nigerian aviation industry.[4]

An elder of the opposition Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), Senator Hadi Abubakar Sirika has disclosed that elders of the party have succeeded in convincing General Muhammadu Buhari to run as president in 2015. Senator Sirika, who made the disclosure in Daura on Sunday while donating vehicles to his constituents from the response they have received from so far, the General, will run.[5]
