The new Caretaker Committee Chairman of All Progressives Congress, APC, and Yobe State governor, Mai Mala Buni, has pledged to do justice to every party member and ensure the current challenges were amicably resolved.
Recall that during its extraordinary meeting on Thursday, the APC National Executive Committee, NEC, had dissolved the party’s National Working Committee, NWC, after which Mr Buni-led Caretaker Committee was set up to organise a National Convention for the party.
Speaking with newsmen in Abuja, shortly after his inauguration, Mr Buni described the committee as a capable team to deliver the job.
He said: “After being two-time national Secretary of the party, I can say, I know the party very well.
“I want to assure every APC member that we will do justice to everyone, because we have a capable team.
“I am a team player and am here to manage a crisis, and if you do not manage crisis, crisis will manage you.
“So, without justice, there will be no peace; so, am ready to do justice to every APC member,” the chairman said.
According to him, NEC is the highest organ of the party, except the convention, and NEC can function for convention in-between, so any decision taken by NEC is the final decision.
“NEC has directed that every member in court should withdraw his suit.
“Party will carry all members along, especially the leaders of the APC.
“Many of them have paid their dues to the party, so we will carry them along,” Mr Buni said.
Other members of the caretaker committee and extra-ordinary convention planning committee, include: Gov. Gboyega Oyetola of Osun (South-West), Sen. Ken Nnamani (South-East), Stella Okorete (Women Representative).
Other members are: Gov. Sani Bello of Niger (North-Central), Dr James Lalu for the physically challenged, Sen. Abubakar Yusuf (Senate Representative) and Rep. Akinyemi Olaide, representing House of Representatives.
David Lyon (South/South); Abba Ari (North-West); Prof. Tahir Mamman (North-East); Ismail Ahmed (Youth Leader) and Sen. Akpan Udoedehe as the Committee Secretary.
