Buni takes over APC, promises fairness to all

The newly appointed chairman of the caretaker committee of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Mai Mala Buni on Thursday took over administration of the party with a promise of justice and fairness to all members within his short reign.

The chairman, who drove into the party Secretariat with other members of his 13-man caretaker committee immediately after the emergency National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting, also promised to carry every member, including leaders along.

The gates of the party Secretariat locked by Policemen in the early hours of the day were flung open when the new caretaker committee arrived the party office.

Addressing newsmen on arrival at the Secretariat, Buni, who is Yobe Governor, said: “Party will carry all members along especially the leaders of the APC. Many of them have paid their dues to the party, so we will carry them along.

“After being two time national Secretary of the party, I can say I know the party very well, I want to assure every APC member that we will do justice to every one because we have a capable team

“I am a team player and am here to manage a crisis and if you do not manage crisis, crisis will manage you, so without justice there will be no peace, so am ready to do justice to every APC member.

“NEC is the highest organ of the party except the convention, and NEC can function for convention in-between, so any decision taken by NEC is the final decision”.

He said NEC has directed all suits filed in court by members should be withdrawn.

The chairman later held a brief meeting with members of his 13-man caretaker committee.

Buni was accompanied by some Governors in solidarity to the party Secretariat.

Governors of Kebbi, Kano, Ekiti, Kogi, Kwara, Plateau and Kaduna States accompanied Buni to the Secretariat.

The Senate President and Gombe governor had earlier arrived the party office.
