Governor Of Yobe ‘Buni’ Takes Charge Of APC After Returning From A Medical Trip Abroad
Yobe State Governor, Mai Mala Buni, has returned from his medical trip abroad, to take over the leadership of the All Progressives Congress Caretaker and Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee.
This was contained in a press statement signed by his Director-General (Press and Media Affairs), Alhaji Mamman Mohammed, in Damaturu on Thursday.
Mohammed said that Buni appealed to all party members to remain calm and law-abiding.
The statement partly read:
“Put the recent events in the party behind you and work towards a successful Convention. The success of the party remains paramount and needs the support of every member.
“As we head towards the National Convention, the party needs the support of every stakeholder and member to succeed. As democrats and committed party members, we should avoid issues that are capable of diverting our attention from the path of success.”
Buni said it was a waste of time to hold grudges against individuals involved in the recent happenings in the party, saying grudges were detrimental to the success of a party.
He expressed gratitude to President Muhammadu Buhari for the amicable resolution of recent misunderstanding in the party.
“We appreciate the good leadership role played by Mr. President in resolving the recent events to keep a united and strong APC,” he stated.
Buni said that all actions taken by the APC CECPC under Gov. Abubakar Bello of Niger State, who was the acting chairman, remained valid and binding.
“I duly transmitted power to His Excellency, Niger state Governor, Muhammed Sani Bello. Therefore, all actions and measures taken by the committee under his leadership as acting chairman, remain valid and binding,” Buni affirmed.
