APC Convention: Pressure Mounts On Buni, Oyetola To Resign

Share This

Despite the resolution of governors elected on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) that the planned national convention should go ahead in February, pressure is mount­ing on Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State, who is also the Chairman of Caretaker Extraordinary Conven­tion Planning Committee (CECPC) of the party, and Gboyega Oyetola of Osun State, a member of the CECPC, to resign from committee.

It would be recalled that Chairman of Progressive Governors’ Forum (PGF) and governor of Kebbi State, Atiku Bagudu, as well as Buni, had after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in Aso Rock Villa on November 22,2021, announced February for APC’s national convention.

With January gradually drawing to a close, no definite date has been fixed for the con­vention while some party chief­tains have called for it to be post­poned in order to give room for the party to address the myriads of challenges confronting it.

However, speaking after the meeting of the APC governors on Sunday night, Bagudu said while they have agreed that the convention will go ahead in February, the announcement of the date will be made known by the caretaker committee of the party.

“We discussed our upcoming convention which you may recall I had cause to address the press after we visited President Buhari in November 2021 where the president and the party agreed that the convention would take place in February,” the governor added.

“We are one group of stake­holders in the party and our party respects institutions. The appropriate organ of the party that will announce a date for the national convention is the CECPC.”

Governor Bagudu also disclosed that the governors passed a vote of confidence on the caretaker committee of the party, led by the Yobe State governor, Mai Mala Buni.
