Governor Mai Mala Buni

The caretaker/extraordinary convention planning committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has finally seized the initiative to intervene in the crisis trailing the state congress conducted last weekend in Oyo State. 

A party source told Nigerian Tribune on Wednesday that Yobe State governor and chairman of the caretaker committee, Mai Mala Buni, had invited chieftains of the party to a meeting scheduled for today. 

At the end of the congress held at the Obafemi Awolowo Stadium last Saturday, former commissioner for land and housing, Isaac Omodewu, emerged as the chairman. 

The congress, which was twice postponed, was, however, boycotted by certain chieftains of the party in the state.
