- The Governor Mai Mala Buni-led caretaker committee of the All Progressives Congress been asked to resign by a group
- According to Concerned APC Stakeholders, the call was made because the committee had failed to manage the affairs of the party
- Going further, the group said the party's performance at the recent Anambra election could not be divorced from the national secretariat to provide leadership
Abuja - It appears the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) maybe heading for another crisis following a call for the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led Caretaker/Extraordinary National Convention Planning Committee to resign immediately.
The Punch reports that supporters of the ruling party under the aegis of Concerned APC Stakeholders made the demand on Thursday, November 11.
Ayo Olalowo, the spokesman for the group, made the call at a press conference in Abuja, saying the committee had been unable to manage the party’s internal affairs.
According to the group, APC's performance at the governorship election in Anambra state could not be divorced from the committee's failure to provide leadership, The Guardian added.

They also blamed the Buni led committee for the loss by the APC and its candidate, Senator Andy Uba to the ruling All progressive Grand Alliance (APGA).
Olalowo said similar circumstances are also being witnessed in Osun and some other states. While noting that the reason for the problems was because the processes were built on very shaky foundations, the spokesman said the outcome was designed to favour certain selected individuals in the party.
2023: Photos emerge as APC chairman Buni, his team visit Tinubu in Bourdillon
In a previous report by Legit.ng, the presidential ambition of the national leader of the APC Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, may have received a major boost on Sunday, October 24.
Legit.ng reports that the boost was not unconnected with the visit of the caretaker committee chairman of the ruling APC and Yobe state governor, and his delegate to the former governor of Lagos.
Buni's delegate, thus, joined the scores of APC leaders that have visited Tinubu both in London and in Lagos in the last three months.
