APC Sacks Buni As Niger State Governor Takes Over
Mai Mala Buni, the Governor of Yobe State and Chairman of the APC’s caretaker committee, has been ousted from his post in the ruling party.
According to reports, the governor of Niger State has taken over as head of the party’s caretaker committee.
This comes after a Southern Governor elected on the party’s platform approved Buni’s dismissal as Chairman of the party’s caretaker committee.
Buni was dismissed on an order from President Muhammadu Buhari, the party’s leader, according to the Governor, whose name was not revealed.
On Monday, Bello presided over a meeting of the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee as well as state party chairmen.
“The states chairmen took their oath of office today,” the Niger State Governor remarked in an interview with journalists after the meeting.
“We discussed progress made so far on convention and what needs to be done next so that we will achieve the March 26 date for the convention.”
When asked why he presided over the meeting said, “Acting Chairman; I have been acting for a while since the chairman (Buni) travelled.”
He, on the other hand, remained silent about his selection as the Caretaker Committee’s new chairman.
