The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Caretaker Committee and Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni, has reconciled with his Niger State counterpart, Abubakar Sani Bello.
Naija News reports that the Yobe governor returned to the country on Thursday after travelling to Dubai for medical treatment. In a meeting with members of the caretaker committee at the party’s headquarters in Abuja, Buni appreciated Bello managing the party and its affairs while he was away. The APC caretaker chairman stated that the party leadership is doing its best to ensure the successful conduct of the National Convention slated for March 26. According to the Yobe governor, the March 26 National Convention is sacrosanct and nothing can stop the much-anticipated event from holding. He said: “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.” Speaking, Bello appreciated Buni for recognising the progress made in his absence, adding that members of the caretaker committee have been helpful in planning the convention. 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.”
