Governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress have thrown their weight behind the Governor Mai Mala Buni -led Caretaker/ Extraordinary National Convention Planning Committee.
The decision was taken after a review of excerpts of the Supreme Court judgment which they noted did not invalidate Buni’s position as chairman of the committee.
This was contained in a statement titled, ‘Supreme Court Judgment on Ondo State Election,’ signed by the Chairman of the Progressives Governors Forum, Abubakar Bagudu, in Abuja, on Thursday.
He said the written judgment which was released late on Wednesday, August 4, 2021 had vindicated the party.
Earlier, a member of the caretaker committee, Mamman Tahir (SAN), while reading out excerpts of the judgement to newsmen at a press conference said, “The Supreme Court upheld the finding of the Court of Appeal that the Caretaker/Extraordinary National Convention Planning Committee, ‘was set up to act on behalf of the National Executive Committee to temporarily carry out the function of the National Working Committee until new members were democratically elected.
