Yobe State governor Mai Mala Buni, who also double as Caretaker Chairman of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), has said that he spends at least three days in a month in the state.
Buni was reacting to criticism that he has been largely absent from the state since he took over as the caretaker chairman of the All Progressives Congress
Speaking in an interview with BBC, the governor said he carries out his duties effectively even when he is not in the state, adding that, his duty in the ruling party is not hindering his efforts in discharging his responsibilities.
In early November,2020, some stakeholders in the All Progressives Congress in Yobe, demanded the impeachment of the governor by the State House of Assembly, if he failed to resign
The stakeholders had premised their demand on the governor’s alleged unavailability in the State, to discharge his constitutional duties as elected state governor.
