Why Gov. Buni cannot be APC caretaker committee chairman
The All Progressives Congress (APC) national executive council (NEC) meeting held last week where Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe state, was appointed as the APC caretaker committee chairman.
The caretaker committee will run the affairs of the party pending when it elects new officials.
But his appointment is seen as a clear violation of the APC constitution which forbids officers of the party from holding any executive position in government.
Section four under article 17 reads: “No officer in any organ of the Party shall hold executive position office in government concurrently.”
The legal logic is that if you are not qualified to hold a substantive position, then you are not qualified to act.
This is contained in sections 11 (1) and (2) of the Nigerian interpretations act of 2004.
