Senators not aware of Buni’s sack – Adeyemi

KOGI State Senator, Smart Adeyemi, says his colleagues in the National Assembly were not aware that President Muhammadu Buhari had sanctioned the sack of Governor Mai Mala Buni as s as chairman, Caretaker/ Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee of the All Progressives Congress.

Speaking on Channels Television’s Politics Today, yesterday, Senator Adeyemi’s re-echoed pro-Buni sentiments.

“There was a letter written by Mai Mala Buni saying that he was travelling. And in that letter, he did transmit power to the Governor of Niger State,” Senator Adeyemi said.

“As far as we are concerned in the Senate, we are not aware that Mr President gave a marching order to the acting Chairman to vacate his office.”

Senator Adeyemi said the controversy was generated by people who have “one interest or the other to protect.”

“It is just a game,” he added. “Mai Mala Buni performed excellently well, he brought in seasoned people, Governors, former Generals, statesmen, he brought them back to the APC. So today the APC is more formidable. In fact we owe him some level of gratitude.

“Buni came when there was crisis in the APC, when the APC was almost collapsing. And he has succeeded to put the party together. And consolidated the party, and we are cruising to victory.”
