– There are speculations that Mai Mala Buni, the governor of Yobe state, is planning to resign his position in a bid to emerge as the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), ThisDayhas reported.
Governor Buni who is currently the chairman of the ruling party’s national caretaker committee is scheduled to end his second term as Yobe’s number one citizen in 2023.
The newspaper added that Governor Buni’s alleged ambition may have stopped the caretaker committee from announcing dates for national and states congresses to usher in new party leadership.
Governor Buni reacts
Meanwhile, Governor Buni has reportedly denied the alleged plan to resign his position as governor to become the substantive chairman of the APC.
His media aide, Mamman Mohammed, said he already has a job, and he is not looking for another one.
“It is a blatant lie; it is just a fabrication. The governor has a job, which he’s doing and he is not looking for any other job.”
Mohammed said the task given to Governor Buni is to build a viable and vibrant APC, organise a successful congress and convention and hand over the party to the newly elected officials, Arise TVreported.
More governors to dump PDP for APC, Ganduje claims
