The deputy national publicity secretary of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Yekini Nabena has called on the Niger state governor Sani Bello to stop his plan to call for a National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting without the authorisation of Governor Mai Mala Buni. Nabena alleged that the plot by the Niger state governor to destabilise the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has been on for a while because of his vice presidential ambition in 2023, hence his plan to convey a NEC meeting.
In a statement sent to OBSERVERSTIMES March 6, the APC chieftain said Governor Bello is just an ordinary member of the Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) and not the chairman or secretary.
I am using this medium to call on our leaders across the states to caution Governor Sani Bello of Niger state. The presidency should also call him to order to immediately drop the plan to convey a NEC meeting without the knowledge of Governor Mai Mala Buni and the secretary of the CECPC. “The likes of Governor Bello are the political vultures working against our party and to cause anarchy in the ruling APC. “Governor Sani Bello is neither the chairman nor secretary of the National Caretaker Committee. So did he get the power to convey such meeting?
Governor Bello should not destroy the ruling APC because of his personal political ambition of becoming vice president or whatever in 2023.” According to Nabena, the large interest of the majority should be bigger than the personal ambition of Governor Bello.
