The All Progressives Congress (APC) has given reasons why President Muhammadu Buhari extended the tenure of the Mai Mala Buni-led Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee.
Recall that Buhari had on Friday granted an extension to the committee to remain in office until it can conduct a national convention for the party.
The Buni-led committee came on board in June 2020 after the dissolution of the Adams Oshiomhole led National Working Committee (NWC).
In a statement on Sunday, the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Yekini Nabena, said Buhari extended the timeline of the party’s because of its strength to make future elections a walk-over for the party.
According to Nabena, the Caretaker Committee had stabilised the party and rescued it from life-threatening crisis across the country.
“It is remarkable that the Caretaker Committee led by Buni inherited liability of unpaid legal fees to the tune of N340 million, but successfully negotiated and brought down the fees to N179 million which is now fully paid,” the statement read.
“In terms of inclusiveness in the party activities, the National Caretaker Committee has shown a new direction with so many members who have felt neglected now feeling proud as the owners of APC.
“I, therefore, appeal to all and sundry, especially the leaders at all levels, to not only give peace a chance but rally all the needed support for the current APC leadership at the centre to succeed in its efforts to make future elections a walk-over for our great party.
“We have all seen that with Governor Buni in charge.
“So many other opposition governors, Senators, Reps members and all other known politicians in Nigeria will be attracted to APC.”
