APC chieftain drums support for Gov. Buni-led caretaker committee


Yekini Nabena, the Deputy National Publicity Secretary, All Progressives Congress (APC), has urged support for the party’s newly constituted Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee, headed by Gov. Mai Mala Buni of Yobe.

Nabena, who gave the charge in a statement in Abuja on Saturday, urged aggrieved APC members to drop court cases against the party to ensure peace and unity.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), recalls that President Muhammadu Buhari, along with the APC National Executive Committee (NEC), had on Thursday dissolved the party’s National Working Committee (NWC), and constituted the caretaker committee to reset the party.

Nabena said he was giving the charge in line with Buhari’s admonition during the 8th resumed meeting of the APC NEC, held at the Presidential Villa on Thursday.

“Perceived fears of a witch-hunt is misplaced. The APC Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee, headed by the Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni, has been given a mandate by the NEC to reform our party and ensure unity across party ranks.

“There might be contentions, which is not unusual in a political organisation, but the task before us now is to support the caretaker committee to settle our differences and bring the much needed reconciliation and peace to our party at this point.

“The leader of our party, President Buhari, has called on party members to withdraw cases against the party in court,” Nabena said.

He said it was heartwarming that many members had begun adhering to the president’s call.

“Therefore, I urge other members and groups to do same for the growth and unity of our party.

“Governorship elections in Edo and Ondo states are forthcoming. We must now come together as a united political party to consolidate and win the elections,,” Nabena said. (NAN)
