APC struggles for survival: Gov’s Forum demands Buni’s resignation over convention

The Struggle for the soul of the ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC) heightened at the weekend as the Governors Forum demands resignation of Governor Mai Mala Buni .

 Director General of Progressives Governors Forum (PGF), Dr. Lukman Salihu made the call on the Chairman of the Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) and the Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni to resign honorably if he fails to conduct the party’s convention tentatively slated for February.

He said party leaders must understand that the survival of the party was at stake and any attempt to continue to contemplate postponement of the convention meant gambling with the future of the party.

Lukman’s demand for Buni’s resignation was made known in a letter dated January 5, 2022 titled, “APC National Convention: Urgent Matters for the Survival of APC,” which was sighted by DAILY POST.

The party chieftain said the insinuation in the public was that the reluctance of Buni to proceed with implementation of the decision to hold the APC National Convention on February 5, 2022, as agreed was because governors want to continue to control the party.

He stressed that there was need for party leaders to consider convening an emergency meeting of the National Caucus to review all those developments and perhaps give opportunity to Buni and the Secretary, Sen. John Akpanudoedehe to explain whatever difficulty they may be having.
