The Yobe State Governor’s appointment on 25th June 2020 followed the dissolution of the party’s National Working Committee as a result of the crisis that rocked the tenure of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole as National Chairman.
The primary mandate of the Buni caretaker committee and extraordinary national convention was to stabilise the party and conduct a national convention within a short time.
Almost two years later, the APC has witnessed twists and turns resulting in a serial postponement of its convention.
With President Buhari’s intervention, the cloud around the 26th March national convention may now have been cleared.
Many APC Governors had backed Governor Sani-Bello, who is a member of the caretaker committee representing the Northcentral.
But, a former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the party, Yekini Nabena urged Governor Sani-Bello to stop his alleged plan to call a meeting of the National Executive Committee without the authorisation of the CECC Chairman.
Nabena said then: ‘I am using this medium to call on our leaders across the states to caution Governor Sani-Bello.
‘The Presidency should also call him to order to immediately drop the plan to convene a NEC meeting without the knowledge of Governor Mai Mala Buni and the Secretary of the CECC
‘The likes of Governor Bello are working against our party and to cause anarchy in the ruling APC.
‘Governor Sani Bello is neither the Chairman nor Secretary of the National Caretaker Committee. So, where did he get the power to convey such a meeting’?
