The Chairman of the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, in Borno State, Hon. Ali Bukar Dalori, Tuesday, applauded the outcome of the National Executive Committee (NEC), meting where members unanimously agreed and endorsed tenure extension of all elected and appointed officers of the party in the 36 states, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and the national level.
This was the outcome of the 5th meeting of the APC NEC and other caucus members in Abuja.
Reacting to the development, Dalori said the decision was welcomed for the interest of the party.
He, however, insisted that any member of of the executive still occupying position, but wants to contest for elective position in the state come 2019 should resign his position.
His words: “I want to inform you that our tenure as Executive of our great party has been extended to another one year, and so, anybody in the executive that is nursing for any elective position in the next year general election must tender his/her resignation letter based on the constitution of our great Party, APC”.
On some speculation that he (Dalori) is among those nursing for the seat of governorship in the state, and whether he was ready to step down and tender his resignation as APC state Chairman, he said, “for now, I have accepted what transpired in the NEC meeting in good faith for the interest of the party, but as I said earlier, anyone who wants to aspire should resign his position; it is applicable to my humble self, so we are studying the situation before the time comes”, he said.
