Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna state has revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari gave them a directive to remove Yobe State Governor Mai Mala Buni as the chairman of the caretaker committee of the APC.
El-Rufai who disclosed this on a Channels Television programme, said Governors of the All Progressives Congress discovered a grand conspiracy between the lawyers of the ousted  Chairman of the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, Mai Mala Buni; and some fifth columnists to postpone the national convention of the party through a court injunction.
The Kaduna state Governor said the plan was to postpone the convention till May which coincides with the deadline set by the Independent National Electoral Commission for all political parties to conduct their presidential primaries.
He added that no fewer than 19 governors of the party and one deputy governor unanimously agreed to carry out the directive of the president, adding that the remaining three governors are the ones dishing out “fake news” that Buni has not been removed.

 

El-Rufai said; 
 “The president held a meeting with us (APC governors), and gave us a clear directive and responsibilities and went into his waiting chopper at the airport. The president in his wisdom knew that we have the capacity.

“It is just that some of us decided to take the back seat and allow things to even get to this point because we believe that once we were elected, we should focus on governance, and leave the party administration to those who are better at it.

“But clearly, it got to a point that something was going to go wrong. The party was being placed at great risk, and we had to do something.

“I’m happy that the caretaker committee headed by Abubakar Sani Bello has issued a notice for an emergency National Executive Committee meeting.
