THE All Progressive Congress (APC) Caretaker Committee Chairman and Yobe State Governor, Mai Mala Buni, has pledged to do justice to every member and ensure that the present challenges were amicably resolved.

Buni made the pledge on Thursday while speaking with newsmen in Abuja, after the APC National Executive Committee (NEC) dissolved the party’s National Working Committee (NWC).

It set up the Caretaker Committee at an emergency meeting of the party’s NEC, held at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, to organise a National Convention that would reset the party and appoint a national chairman.

Other members of the caretaker committee and extra-ordinary convention planning committee, include: Osun State Governor Gboyega Oyetola (South-West), Senator Ken Nnamani (South-East), Stella Okorete (Women Representative).

Others are: Niger State Governor Sani Bello (North-Central), Dr James Lalu for the physically challenged, Senator Abubakar Yusuf (Senate Representative) and Hon. Akinyemi Olaide, representing House of Representatives, David Lyon (South/South), Abba Ari (North-West), Prof. Tahir Mamman (North-East), Ismail Ahmed (Youth Leader) and Senato Akpan Udoedehe as the Committee Secretary.

Buni, a former APC National Secretary, described the committee as a capable team to deliver the job, noting that “after being two-time national secretary of the party, I can say, I know the party very well.

“I want to assure every APC member that we will do justice to every one, because we have a capable team.

“I am a team player and am here to manage a crisis, and if you do not manage crisis, crisis will manage you.

“So, without justice, there will be no peace; so, am ready to do justice to every APC member.”

According to him, NEC as the highest organ of the party, “has directed that every member in court should withdraw his suit.

“Party will carry all members along, especially the leaders of the APC.

“Many of them have paid their dues to the party, so we will carry them along.”

Meanwhile, the Publicity Secretary, APC State Chairmen Forum, Alhaji Lawal Liman, praised NEC for directing members in courts to withdraw the suits and for dissolving the NWC, saying that NEC resolution would go a long way in ending the crisis rocking the party.
