Reason Behind Buni’s Removal As APC Caretaker Chairman- El-Rufai

El Rufai

Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai has explained the reason, the All Progressives Congress (APC) Caretaker Chairman had to be pushed aside.

According to him, certain actions and inactions of Yobe State Governor, Mai Mala Buni put the Ruling Party at risk, noting that, those actions were hindrance to the Party’s plan to hold its convention on March 26.

El-Rufai, who spoke on Channels, said, he had the authority of the Chairman of the Progressives Governors Forum (PGF) and Kebbi State Governor, Atiku Bagudu to explain the action that led to the appointment of Niger State Governor, Abubakar Sani Bello, as acting Chairman of APC.

He noted that, 19 of the 23 Governors elected on the ticket of the party were on same page on the mission to prevent the party from collapsing.

El-Rufai further disclosed that, the APC Governors met with President Buhari on Sunday, shortly before his London trip to obtain his approval for the plan to proceed with preparations for the convention and to hold a NEC meeting.

He confirmed that an injunction had been obtained following a request from the Court by a Party Member to the effect that, the party should not hold its convention until his grievances had been addressed.

El-Rufai therefore reiterated that, efforts had commenced to vacate the injunction which, he described as “a weapon of mass destruction,” planned to be used to scuttle the Convention.

He also disclosed that, the fate of Caretaker Secretary, James Akpanudoedehe had been decided, after he refused to take instruction from acting Chairman, Bello who took over on Monday.
