As regards the commotion rocking the All Progressive Congress party, APC, a former Aviation Minister and PDP chieftain, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has aired his view.

Contained in some reports that a few APC chieftains and some oppositions had requested that Gov of Yobe State, Alhaji Mai Mala Buni, the interim chairman of the ruling APC, steps aside from his position as caretaker Chairman of the party to allow a former governor take over as national chairman.

These calls became serious shortly after one of the Supreme Court judges in the Ondo gubernatorial election, declared that the position of Governor Buni as the interim chairman of the party is against the constitution.

But in a meeting headed by Vice President Osinbajo, as directed by President Muhammadu Buhari, the Attorney general of the federation and Minister of Justice, Mr Abubakar Malami had declared that Buni’s led APC is in line with the party’s constitution and as such, the party’s fortunes would not be affected before or after the general elections.

In a reaction, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode speaking as a Nigerian and political observer expresses surprise over calls and moves for the removal of the Yobe State Gov as the Caretaker Chairman of the crisis rocking ruling party.

The former Aviation Minister wondered why anyone would be against a party leader who has attracted several political heavyweights – three governors, many distinguished senators and formers ministers, including many honourable members of House of Representatives to the ruling APC by his excellent style of leadership.

FFK, in several tweets has warned that the ruling APC would be making a very grievous mistake if Gov Mai Mala Buni is removed as the party leader.

He stated, “It amazes me that the Nat. Chairman of a pol. party that has attracted 3 Governors from the ranks of the opposition together with Senators, House of Rep members, BOT members, fmr. Ministers & other notables all in 1 year is being undermined by disgruntled elements in his party. The biggest mistake APC can make is to get rid of Gov. Mala Mai Buni as its leader.”

“I say this because he has done more for the credibility and strength of the ruling party than any National Chairman since its inception,” He said.

“Apart from being a formidable intellectual, a man of his word and an absolute gentleman, he is also a moderate, civilised, cerebral, fair-minded & focused individual for whom I have immense respect,” Fani-Kayode added.
