This is as they avoided announcing a particular date, saying the forum is only an organ of the party and, therefore, cannot announce a date on its own.Chairman of the Progressive Governors’ Forum and Kebbi State Governor, Abubakar Bagudu, disclosed this to correspondents in the late hours of Sunday after a three-hour meeting at the Kebbi State Governor’s Lodge in Abuja.“The Buni-led leadership is not against those that were calling for the convention in February but the leadership wanted a situation where the house will not be too divided against itself during the national convention.The meeting which began at about 09:00 pm had in attendance all governors of the Forum except Aminu Masari of Katsina and Muhammad Yahaya of Gombe.’ He said, “In furtherance of the agenda to continue the extension of its six-month mandate, which is now running to the 19th month, the Buni-led Caretaker Committee has come up with another plot to deceive party members and buy time to propagate its selfish agenda further.Speaking after the meeting, Bagudu said, “The Progressive Governors met tonight to discuss numerous issues affecting the forum and member states and we acknowledged some of the achievements in the states and members of the forum as well as the President who visited Ogun and Borno states where he commissioned projects.” The final decision on the February date is coming against the backdrop of calls for the sack of the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led caretaker committee over allegations that it was hell bent on holding on to the seats to score political goals.“We have had challenges in some states and we commiserated with them.ADVERTISEMENT.
We spoke about our unanimous appreciation for Mr President and especially the confidence he has in the forum.In this article.” Audu said the actual plot was to use the February 25 date to buy more time, pretending it has no knowledge of the forthcoming bye-election, by which time the committee will be left with no option but to postpone the much-awaited February convention to another date.“We also passed a vote of confidence in the National Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee of the party chaired by Governor Mai Mala Buni and assisted by two other governors including Governor Abubakar Bello of Niger State and Gboyega Oyetola of Osun State; who have done an incredible job of running our party successfully, mobilising people into the party.” The governor explained that the Forum discussed the February National Convention stating that it has unanimously agreed that it holds in February; as opposed to speculations of an impending postponement.He said, “We discussed our coming convention which you may recall, I had cause to address the press when we visited Mr President in November.“This is the reason it opted to plant the date in the media rather than coming out with an official position.We expressed that both Mr President and the party have agreed that convention should take place in February.
“So we took inputs about the reviews and we noted all the misrepresentations in the press and sought to correct it.“The Progressive Governors’ Forum is one united body as you can see evidently from the attendance.” Copyright PUNCH All rights reserved.And our decision is unanimous.We are united behind Mr President and we thank him.And we are united behind the Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee.
” Asked what date in February the convention will hold, he said, “Yes, February is still realistic.But we are just one group of stakeholders.Our party respects institutions.It is the appropriate organ of the party, the National Caretaker Committee that will announce a date.“We have agreed and they will announce a date in February.
The announcement comes from the party.It is a party decision.There are other stakeholders that they are consulting with and to show respect and institutional limits, we are not going to overstep our bounds.” In attendance were the Governors of Yobe, Mai Mala Buni; Borno, Babagana Zulum; Jigawa, Muhammad Abubakar; Ondo, Rotimi Akeredolu; Niger, Abubakar Bello; Kaduna, Nasir El-Rufai; Ekiti, Kayode Fayemi; Kogi, Yahaya Bello; Ogun, Dapo Abiodun; Zamfara, Bello Matawalle; Ebonyi, Dave Umahi; Osun, Gboyega Oyetola; Lagos, Babajide Sanwo-Olu; Plateau, Simon Lalong; Imo, Hope Uzondinma; Nasarrawa, Abdullahi Sule, Cross River, Ben Ayade; Kwara, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, Kano, Abdullahi Ganduje; and Deputy Governor of Anambra State, Nkem Okeke..
