Mai Mala Buni, national chairman of the All Progressive Congress, APC caretaker committee, says Nigerians should expect a more united party after the convention is held.
Speaking with journalists on Monday after he and other APC governors held a meeting with Buhari at the presidential villa, the Yobe state governor said: “The Progressive Governors Forum, after their meeting, suggested February to the party and the president has concurred. So, we are going ahead to plan for the convention in February,”
“Nigerians should expect more unity and progress as a result of the forthcoming convention.”
The governor denied allegations that he is delaying the convention to extend his tenure as chairman.
“Am I a jobless person who is always trying to extend his tenure? To do what? I have my primary responsibility as a governor to go back to my state and carry out my primary responsibility,” he said.
“What I am here to do is ad hoc and of course to reposition the party and that is exactly what we have been able to achieve.”
