APC Convention to Hold Soon - Buni
Obiajulu Joel Nwolu

Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC) caretaker committee, Mai Mala Buni has said the party’s convention will hold soon.

Buni disclosed this while reacting to accusations by some party faithful that the committee was not planning to hold a convention as part of scheme to extend its tenure.

Former senator from Zamfara, Kabir Marafa had issued Buni a December ultimatum to organise a convention or face opposition.

Speaking with journalists after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the state house, Buni said the convention will happen soon.

He said that members of the committee are not looking for jobs but are determine to unite the party.

The leadership crisis that erupted in the party led to the constitution of the caretaker committee by the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) in June.

Buni said, “Already, we have a job. But we have to sacrifice to ensure that we reposition the party. So, anybody who is thinking that maybe we are job seekers is wrong. We are not job seekers. We are here to reposition and reunite our party so that we have a party we can all be proud of.

“This is our mandate and we are ready to discharge our mandate. That [tenure elongation] is left for NEC of the party to decide. It is not me or caretaker committee to decide. We are operating within the limit of our assignment.

On the purpose of his visit, he said, “It’s to consult with him (Buhari) on the process of the membership registration. As from today, we are commencing with sensitisation.

“Thereafter, it will culminate into membership registration across over 119,000 polling units in the country. It is part of our mandate as bestowed on us by national executive committee to rebuild this party bottom up.”
