The Kwara State Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq has commended the quality leadership Governor Mai Mala Buni has provided for the All Progressives Congress through the Caretaker/Extraordinary Planning Committee (CECPC).
Governor Abdulrazaq made this known on Wednesday while submitting the report of the Party’s Direct Primary conducted on Saturday to elect the APC governorship candidate for the election fixed for July 16, 2022.

John James Akpanudoedehe at the Party’s National Secretariat assured the party’s leadership that ‘APC is alive, strong in Osun’, adding that the APC and the administration of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola were alive, strong and popular in Osun State, judging by the massive and peaceful voters’ turnout for the Direct Primary Election in the state.
Thanking Governor Buni for the opportunity to serve the Party, he noted that “The Primary Election Committee saw it as a privilege to have been appointed to undertake this exercise on behalf of the APC.
“We also saw it as a huge challenge, seeing the press and social media reports on the happenings in Osun before and while we received the appointment.
