BREAKING; Security operatives take over APC Headquarters amid rumoured news Buhari has sacked Buni
Following reports that President Muhammadu Buhari has sanctioned the sack of the National Chairman, Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Gov. Mai Mala Buni on Sunday before departing the country for London, there was a heavy presence of security operatives at the national secretariat of the party on Monday.
As early as 8am, policemen reportedly took strategic positions in and around the secretariat, restricting human and vehicular movements, in what they said was part of efforts to maintain law and order.
But despite his reported sacking, Gov. Buni has insisted that he is still in charge of the party, describing the reports of his sacking as ‘fake news’.
The governor made the declaration in a statement issued Monday morning in Abuja and signed by the National Secretary of the CECPC, Senator John James Akpanudoedehe.
The statement reads; “Our attention has been drawn to sponsored media reports on an imaginary leadership change in the All Progressives Congress APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee CECPC.
“The media report is fake news and should be disregarded.
“The APC is a progressive political party guided by rules. Leadership changes are not announced by ‘sources’ through name dropping in the media.
“We urge our teeming supporters, members and indeed the general public to remain calm and support the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led APC CECPC conduct a rancour-free and credible National Convention deserving of our great party,” he added.
