The Progressive Youth Vanguard (PYV), a pressure group within the All Progressives Congress (APC), has asked the party’s Caretaker Committee Chairman, Mai Mala Buni, to resign.
The Yobe Governor faces multiple battles as scores of members are in different courts to demand his removal, others have picked holes in his asset declaration form.
In a statement, PYV Coordinator, Ahmed Usman, regretted the President’s “silence on what has become a frustrating issue”.
Usman said they were worried about the Nigerian leader’s body language and were not prepared to take any more chances.
He vowed that concerned party loyalists will not allow President Buhari, Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, and Buni to keep making errors.
“Enough is enough. We believe that within the APC, we have capable hands who can manage the affairs of our party. Why must it be one individual?
“The provision of Section 183 of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) is unambiguous to the effect that the Governor shall not, during the period when he holds office, hold any other executive office or paid employment in any capacity whatsoever.
“It is therefore incontrovertible that the continuous stay of the Governor as Chief Executive Officer of the All Progressives Congress runs contrary to provision of the Constitution and may be an albatross on the party.
“All he had done before would be null and void, including nomination of candidates within the period of his so called leadership of the party.
“We expect President Buhari to direct Governor Buni to immediately resign as acting Chairman of the All Progressives Congress as a stitch in time saves nine.
