Governors of the All Progressive Congress are expected to meet in Abuja on Friday (today) over the Supreme Court pronouncement that nullified Yobe State Governor, Mai Mala Buni, as the chairman of the party.
The governors are expected to discuss Saturday’s APC state and local government congresses as well as the implication of Wednesday’s judgment of the Supreme Court on the Ondo State governorship election for the party.
This was revealed by the Chairman of the APC in Borno State and Chairman of the party’s Chairmen’s Forum, Ali Bukar Dalori, during an interview with Punch.
According to him, the meeting would determine whether the much expected congress would hold on Saturday or not.
Meanwhile, the party’s Caretaker/Extraordinary National Convention Planning Committee of the party at a press conference in Abuja said the Congress would not be stopped despite the court’s pronouncement.
The committee dismissed claims that the Supreme Court in its judgment on the Ondo State governorship election declared Mai Bala Buni’s chairmanship of the caretaker panel illegal.
FirstNews had reported that the Minister of Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo (SAN), had warned the party not to underrate the court’s judgement.
He also said “The technical point that saved the Governor Akeredolu was that Jegede failed to join Governor Mai Mala Buni in the suit.
“The Supreme Court has just weaponised all those that would be aggrieved by the APC congresses to proceed to court to challenge the competence of the Buni-led committee to organise the congresses and national convention.”
