After a prolonged leadership crisis that plagued the All Progressives Congress (APC), the party's interim committee chairman and Yobe state governor Mai Mala Buni took office, ensuring that he would be fair to everyone.
The newly appointed interim president arrived at the APC National Secretariat in the company of some APC governors, including Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti state, Yahaya Bello de Kogi, Simon Lalong of the plateau, Sani Bello of Niger state, Umar Ganduje of state of Kano, Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi, Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State and Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara State and the interim national president of the factions of the past, Victor Giadom.
Buni, who is a former national secretary of the party while addressing journalists on Thursday in Abuja, said he would do justice to all party members, adding that without justice there would be no peace.
According to him, "after being twice the party's national secretary, I can say that I know him very well, I want to assure all APC members that we will do justice to everyone because we have a capable team."
Buni emphasized that the party would take all members, especially the party leaders, emphasizing that many of them paid their debts to the party, so we will take them further.
He added: “I am a member of a team and I am here to manage a crisis. If you don't manage a crisis, it will manage you without justice, there will be no peace, so I'm ready to do justice to all APC members. .
“NEC is the party's highest body, except the convention, and NEC can function for an intermediate convention, so any decision made by NEC is the final decision. NEC ordered all members of the court to withdraw their action. "
