The Chairman, Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee of the All Progressives Congress and Yobe State Governor, Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State has been slammed by the former governor of Zamfara State, AbdulAziz Yari for dissolving the party’s executive in the state.
While speaking to APC supporters from Zamfara Central Zone at his residence in Talata-Mafara on Friday, he said Mai Mala Buni has made a mistake by dissolving the party’s caretaker committee in Zamfara State and also admonished Governor Bello Matawalle to be careful about political sycophants who may lead him astray because of their personal interests.
He, however, called on APC members in the state to remain calm and united, saying, “We will reclaim the state come 2023. Some people were saying I would leave the APC. That is their own speculation. I was one of the 10 founding fathers of the APC. I will not leave the party, no matter what.
“Anybody who says I will defect to another party has a hidden agenda. I will not build a party and leave it. We will try to correct our past mistake to recapture the state.
“We are ready to face (former Governor Ahmed) Yarima in whatever way possible. I was one of those who assisted him to achieve his political ambition. I was one of those who printed his posters. Mai Mala Buni has made a mistake by dissolving the party’s caretaker committee in Zamfara State.”
Yari, therefore, called on Buni to correct what he described as a mistake in Zamfara.
The Governor Mai Mala Buni-chaired All Progressives Congress (APC) Caretaker/Extraordinary and Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) had earlier this week dissolved the party’s caretaker committee in Zamfara and constituted a three-member committee to run the affairs of the party in the state following the defection of Matawalle.
