Buhari’s Reason For Sacking Buni Revealed

Following the recent dilemma rocking the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC), answers have begun to emerge gradually. Reports say that the ouster of the embattled former caretaker chairman of the ruling party, Mai Mala Buni was based on the directive of President Muhammadu Buhari. It was gathered that Buni’s ouster from the leadership seat of the ruling party was said to have resulted from the Yobe state governor’s deliberate attempt to delay the party’s national convention. However, the newly assigned acting chairman, Governor Sani Bello of Niger state has seemingly commenced his duties as he was reported to have inaugurated the zonal party chairpersons and held meetings on the preparation of the party convention. Bello, whose role has been described as interim, has also summoned the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting slated for next week. Buni, on the other hand, is expected to arrive from his Dubai trip on Wednesday, March 9. He is also expected to tender his resignation alongside the secretary of the Buni-led Caretaker/Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) Senator John James Akpanudoedehe. It was gathered that Buni’s resignation would be coming swiftly because of his second-term ambition as governor of Yobe state, while Akpanudoedehe will also be seeking to challenge the governorship seat in Akwa Ibom. Prequel to the ouster of Buni, current acting-chairman, Sani Bello revealed his stance over the recent crisis in the party. He stated that his emergence as acting-chairman of the Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) was due to Buni’s absence in the country. Bello claimed that his absence was what prompted the change in leadership.
