He said: “The States Chairmen took their oath of office today and we discussed progress made so far on the forthcoming National Convention and what needs to be done next so that we will achieve the March 26 date for the convention.

“I have been acting for a while since the chairman (Mai Mala Buni) travelled.”

There were reports in the media that President Muhammadu Buhari sanctioned the removal of Buni as APC chairman before he travelled to the United Kingdom for a routine medical check-up.
