•Says ruling party will rule Nigeria for 40 years •No plan for tenure elongation ― Jigawa gov
Yobe State governor and Chairman All Progressives Congress Caretaker/ Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, Mai Mala Buni has said the party would rule Nigeria for forty years.
He made the declaration, on Tuesday, while inaugurating a 61- member Strategy and Contact Committee.
Ahead of the national convention of the party, Governor Buni said the Committee was put in place to assist his leadership towards a smooth transition to establish a very solid, reputable and reliable future for the party.
He said the Strategy team would also consolidate the achievements his leadership is making in building a strong party with a solid structure that would accomplish APC to stand the test of time.
“Our vision is to provide a wheel that will drive the party to go beyond sixth, seventh and even eighth term of office to effectively implement the party manifesto, improve the lives of Nigerians and, remain Nigeria’s leading political party.”
The Yobe State governor said members of the Committee were selected based on merit and competence and expressed the confidence that they would collectively execute the assignment successfully with a high sense of responsibility.
In his acceptance speech, Jigawa State governor and Chairman of the Committee, Abubakar Badaru, said his team would take the assignment seriously and make the necessary sacrifice to complement the efforts of President Muhammadu Buhari and the interim leadership under Governor Buni.
Speaking with journalists shortly after the inauguration, the Jigawa State governor dismissed insinuation that the Caretaker Committee was plotting tenure elongation. He assured the party faithful that the APC national convention slated for June would hold as scheduled.
“June is feasible. It is very feasible. I know the national Caretaker Committee are committed to delivering in June. And we will support them and do whatever it takes to make sure we deliver by June.”
