Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State has said his position as the Caretaker/Chairman of the Convention Planning Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) was not hindering his efforts to discharge his responsibilities.
Recall that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led National Executive Committee (NEC) of the APC had dissolved the Adams Oshiomhole-led National Working Committee (NWC) and appointed Mai Mala Buni as Chairman.
This was following the leadership crisis that rocked the ruling party which resulted in three different individuals laying claims to the acting chairmanship of the APC.
Since Buni’s emergence as caretaker boss, opposition parties and politicians have accused the Yobe governor of abandoning his state and relocating to the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
But speaking in an interview with the BBC, Buni SAID he spends at least three days in a month in the state, adding that he carries out his duties effectively even when he is not in the state.
He said: “On the issue of staying, there is no way I can spend a month without spending three or four days in Yobe state. And then even if I return to Yobe, I won’t advertise or make it public that today I will be in Yobe and tomorrow I will be leaving.
“Wait, Let me land, listen to me, I won’t be revealing to the public that I came to Yobe or when I am leaving. And at this age of technology, when will anybody say that there were bunch of files waiting for me? Even before I came here I don’t know the numbers (of files I treated).”
