Convention: Leave Buni-led Committee Alone, APC Youths Tell Malami

Concerned youths and other stakeholders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has called on the Minister of Justice Abubakar Malami not to interfare with the activities of the Mai Mala Buni-led Caretaker/ Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC).

The youths alleged that Malami has prepared a list of delegates through the backdoor and is planning to prevail on the CECPC to accept.

Speaking at a press conference in Abuja, the group’s convener/president, Comrade Owolabi Abdullahi, said Malami’s action is an embarrassment to the party and the Buhari-led administration.

The youth which called for the immediate resignation of Malami, said he is planning to impose a candidates on the party ahead of the national convention.


“Malami is on a mission to cause gross disaffection in the party through the imposition of candidates, most of which are his allies and cronies,” Abdullahi said adding that as a matter of urgency, the AGF must desist from his ploy to dictate to members of the APC how to elect and whom to elect at the convention.

“The recent events in the buildup to the APC national convention slated for February 26th 2022, has indeed called for concern from all stakeholders; hence this press conference convoked to press for the immediate resignation of the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami from office with immediate effect.

“We are indeed concerned that a high ranking member of the government and the party in the mould of the Justice Minister would elect to undertake acts that are inimical to the ideals of the party, which are clearly outside his purview.

“Mr Abubakar Malami, in recent times, has been meddlesome in the affairs of the party, using his office to cause intimidation and harassment to the current leadership of the party into submitting to his whims and caprices.

“The Concerned APC Youth Forum finds his actions worrisome and an indication that the forthcoming National convention of the party might be in jeopardy due to the unwholesome activities of party members who have elected to make impositions of candidates the new norm at the expense of the array of credible candidates that have signified interest in the leadership positions in the party.

“We wish to state that the meddlesomeness of the AGF, Abubakar Malami, in the party’s affairs is unbecoming of a public official and the country’s chief law officer, whose conduct ought to be guided by fairness, equity and justice. But he has indeed displayed an apparent lack of grasp of the issues regarding equity and justice through his actions regarding the forthcoming National Convention of the APC,” the group said.

Speaking further, the group said as concerned stakeholders of the party, the AGF is on a mission to cause gross disaffection in the party through the attempt to impose candidates on the party.

“Most of which are his allies and cronies through which he intends to hijack the party structure in furtherance of his political ambition.

“It is also more worrisome that the AGF, Abubakar Malami, has carried on like the party’s legal adviser at the expense of his responsibilities as the chief law officer of the country, which has caused the government monumental embarrassment in recent times.
