- Reactions continue to trail the recent tenure elongation of the All Progressives Congress national caretaker committee
- The deputy national publicity secretary of the ruling party, Mr. Yekini Nabena, says the elongation is well deserved
- The national official also commended President Muhammadu Buhari for his role in the elongation process
The deputy national publicity secretary of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr. Yekini Nabena, has rallied support for Governor Mai Bala Buni-led national caretaker committee of the party.
Nabena also commended President Muhammadu Buhari for granting tenure extension for the 13-man committee.
APC experiencing a new lease of life
In a statement sent to Legit.ng on Sunday, June 27, the APC chieftain said President Buhari as the leader of APC who approved the extension also testified that 'the party is now back to life.'
Speaking on the leadership quality of Governor Buni, Nabena noted that:
“In terms of inclusiveness in the party activities, the national caretaker committee has shown a new direction with so many members who have felt neglected now feeling proud as the owners of APC true to sense of belonging given by Governor Buni-led committee.”
A proactive and politically savvy committee
Nabena also noted that the financial records of the governing party are now looking healthy since Governor Buni took over the reins of the APC.
He also cited the numerous defections to the party in the last couple of months as another testament to the effectiveness of the caretaker committee.
Meanwhile, President Buhari, national leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Vice President Prof. Yemi Osibanjo, and many other leaders of the ruling party are scheduled to speak at the public presentation of a book 'APC's Litmus Test.'
The book is written by the director-general of the Progressive Governors Forum, Mallam Salihu Mohammed Lukman.
A statement sent to Legit.ng on Monday, June 7 by the former APC national publicity secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, on behalf of the organising committee, described the book as a contribution to APC's quest to bolster its democratic credentials.
Legit.ng had earlier reported that the senior special assistant, media, and publicity to the president, Mallam Garba Shehu described President Buhari as the superstar of Nigeria's democracy while speaking at the book launch.
The presidential spokesman described the book as a compendium of President Buhari, adding that the author of the book has made the job of the president's spokespersons easier with the contents of the publication.
“People will be amazed by the contents of this book when they read it because it tells you who their president is. It brought the spotlight on President Buhari, and as his spokespersons, I and Femi (Adesina), we want to say this book makes our job a lot easier.”
