Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State and Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, has returned to the country.
When Buni travelled abroad for medical treatment, Governor Sani Bello of Niger State assumed office in acting capacity.
In a brief interview with newsmen at the Yobe Governor’s Lodge in Abuja, on Thursday night, Buni said Bello performed well in his absence.
The Niger gov and and his Kogi counterpart, Yahaya Bello, as well as other members of the party paid Buni a solidarity visit.
Speaking with journalists, Buni said, “You know that since I travelled, the party has not stopped. His Excellency has done very well in managing the affairs of the party.
“We are here to discuss the issues going forward. We are now at the finishing line in the preparations for our national convention which is at hand on March 26. We are putting heads together to achieve this task ahead. I want to emphasis that the March 26 national convention is sacrosanct.
On the absence of the embattled Secretary of the Caretaker Committee, Senator John James Akpanudoedehe at the meeting,  Buni said; “You know that this is not a formal meeting of the committee.
“These members of the CECPC just came to welcome me back to the country and wish me well after returning from a medical trip outside the country. So, it is not a formal meeting that one will ask whether the secretary is here or not. However, he was in the house earlier today. “
Similarly, Governor Sani Bello said, “I can tell you for free that in the last one week, we have ensured that we are good to go for convention.”
However, they declined to brief newsmen at the end of their closed door meeting.
