Borno State Governor, Prof Babagana Zulum, has on Saturday passed a vote of confidence on the Leadership of National Caretaker Chairman of the All Progressives Congress ( APC) and Governor of Yobe State, Hon. Mai Mala Buni stating that Borno will continue to support the party.
Zulum also call on members of the party at all levels not to be distracted but ” to remain loyal in the same direction ”
The Governor made the disclosure in Mafa , his Council Area where he had gone to partake in congresses held by the APC, to elect incoming executives at ward levels.
According to the Governor ” We fully affirm our recognition and loyalty to the leadership of our party at the national level, which is being led by His Excellency Mai Mala Buni.
“We fully support the leadership and abide by their decisions to conduct ward congresses today, the 31st of July”, Zulum said.
Borno APC stakeholders had, during a recent meeting, adopted consensus election of executives, heeding to the advice of the party’s national caretaker committee.
“Alhamdullilah, this afternoon we have witnessed ward congresses of our great party, APC, here in Mafa and everything went well. We thank our party members for their loyalty and commitment”, Zulum said.
Former Deputy Governor of Taraba State, Alhaji Uba Maigari, who’s the chairman of the ward congress committee, performed the process through a voice vote which the candidates unanimously voted.
“We’re here on the behest of the national caretaker committee of the party alongside INEC officials to ensure a free and fair ward congress. As Borno APC stakeholders have already agreed on consensus, we’re conducting it that way” Maigari said .
The caretaker chairman of the APC in Borno, Ali Bukar Dalori, who accompanied the Governor to Mafa, commended party faithful.
