Presidential campaign: Tinubu appoints Buni as adviser on party reconciliation


Mai Mala Buni, governor of Yobe, has been appointed as an adviser for the Tinubu-Shettima presidential campaign council.


The appointment was disclosed in a letter signed by Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).


Tinubu, in the letter dated August 8, said Buni’s appointment is fitting given his achievements as governor of Yobe.


“By way of this letter, we are pleased to formally convey your appointment as the Adviser on Party Integration & Reconciliation of the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council,” the letter reads.


 “This appointment is fitting and appropriate given your impressive political achievement and the exemplary leadership you have demonstrated as governor of your state and as a party member.


“We are grateful that you have joined our campaign team. We know you will do your utmost in this new responsibility so we conduct an effective, message-driven campaign leading us to victory in the 2023 presidential election.


“Together, not only can we ensure victory for our party in the February 2023 election, but we shall also move Nigeria along the path of national greatness by building on the achievements of our party and the President Muhammadu Buhari administration in providing progressive good governance to Nigerians.”


Buni was appointed as chairman of the caretaker committee of the APC in June 2020, and held the position for close to two years.


However, certain developments in the APC saw Abubakar Bello, governor of Niger, take charge of the party’s affairs before the national convention in March 2022, during which Abdullahi Adamu was elected as chairman of the party.
