While declaring his support for the APC leadership at the centre and in the state, the party chieftain said Alhaji Buni has done well both as a serving governor in Yobe state and as the chairman of the ruling party.
“For a serving governor to be dedicated in such a way that governance in Yobe state does not suffer and the responsibility of repositioning our great party is taking good shape should be commended by all and sundry.
“I have, however, come to show appreciation and also lend my support to his leadership.”

Audu support was coming at a time another APC chieftain, Hon. Patrick Obahiagbon, had written a commendation letter to the Chairman Caretaker Committee of the party.
The former legislator advised party men and women against personal and selfish interests, which he said must not override the interest of the party.
“The party interest is more paramount than parochial and self-centered agitations from a microscopic few.”
