Buni Settles Leadership Rift With Bello, Speaks On APC Convention

Mai Mala Buni, the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Caretaker Committee and Governor of Yobe State, has bonded with Abubakar Sani Bello, the Governor of Niger State.

The Yobe governor returned to the nation on Thursday after receiving medical treatment in Dubai.

Buni praised Bello’s management of the party and its operations while he was gone in a meeting with members of the caretaker committee at the party’s headquarters in Abuja.

The APC caretaker chairman noted that the party leadership is doing all possible to ensure that the National Convention, which is scheduled for March 26, goes off without a hitch.

According to the Yobe governor, the National Convention on March 26 is sacred, and nothing can prevent it from taking place.

“You know that this is not a formal meeting of the committee. These members of the Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) just came to welcome me back to the country and wish me well after returning from a medical trip outside the country.

You know that since I travelled, the party has not stopped. His excellency (Abubakar Sani Bello) has done very well in managing the affairs of the party.

“We are here to discuss the issues going forward. We are now at the finishing line in the preparations for our National Convention which is at hand on March 26.

“We are putting heads together to achieve this task ahead. I want to emphasise that the March 26 National Convention is sacrosanct.”

He said.

In his remarks, Bello expressed his gratitude to Buni for recognizing the work accomplished during his absence, and he said that members of the caretaker committee had been helpful in the organizing of the convention, among other things.

He said: “For the past one week, I have been acting as the chairman of the CECPC and what I can tell you is that we made lots of progress towards our national convention like we saw in the inauguration of the state chairmen, adoption of some of the zoning formula, and some of the decisions of the CECPC taken before he (governor Buni) left the country.

“I can tell you for free that in the last one week, we have ensured that we are good to go for the national convention.”
