President Buhari received the APC Chairman Caretaker Committee & Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni, Kebbi State Governor, Abubakar Atiku Bagudu and Jigawa State Governor, Mohammed Abubakar Badaru during the presentation of the Party’s News letter at the State House, Abuja.
President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the registration of new members of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
He gave the approval when the APC Caretaker and Convention Planning Committee, led by its Acting Chairman and Governor of Yobe State, Mr Mai Mala Buni, submitted the timetable for party registration to him.
Governor Buni said the committee had achieved tremendous success in its reconciliation efforts, pointing out that such efforts secured Ondo State for the party and the return of high profile members such as the former Speaker of House of Representatives, Mr Yakubu Dogara and Senator Barnabas Gemade to the party.
Governor Buni, however, debunked rumours of the committee elongating its tenure, explaining that only the party’s national executive committee has the power to end or elongate their tenure.
He added that the National Executive Committee would meet before the end of the year to work out a proper timetable for the party.
