President Muhammadu Buhari has alerted governors of the governing All Progressives Party, APC to the impending implosion of the party if a break is not applied to the current leadership crisis rocking the party and steady it ahead of the planned March 26, 2022 National Convention.

The president is still in the United Kingdom for his medicals where he received a delegation of the embattled Governor of Yobe State, Mai Buni, the party’s National Chairman, during which he wrote teh letter.

Buni who was almost kicked out of office last week by Governor Sani Bello, who assumed Chairmanship of the party in acting capacity and began to take decisions that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, queried.

In a letter (see copy below) of Wednesday, addressed to the Chairman of the APC Governors’ Forum and governor Kebbi State, Bagudu Atiku, Buhari frowned at the many court cases brought against the party by aggrieved members and the controversy over who chairs the party to prepare it for the upcoming convention, arguing that failure to address the various challenges amicably may force the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to invoke the necessary laws to against the conduct of the party.




According to Buhari: “No doubt, these controversies and uncertainties as enumerated above pose a real threat to the party and may lead to a possible non-recognition of its activities, elections and probable invalidation of all its other activities by INEC. This may even lead to its implosion and possible non-existent.”

As a solution, he asked that all members of the Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Committee led by Governor Mai Buna of Yobe state be restored to office and the governors and followers desist from utterances and behaviour that may jeopardise the transition to the convention, which the Buni exco must be allowed to conclude preparations and hold.
