All appears set for a fierce contest between incumbent National Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, Mai Mala Buni, and his main challenger, Kashim Imam, at today’s (Saturday) national convention of the party.
Saturday PUNCH gathered that the party’s governors had yet to agree on a consensus candidate for the position of the national secretary as of the time of sending this report at 7:07pm on Friday.
A top ranking member of the party, who spoke on condition of anonymity in order not to jeopardise ongoing negotiations, said governors and other party leaders had yet to reach an agreement on the matter.
The source said, “After the issue of the national chairman was settled amicably, the position of national secretary which is the engine room of the party’s administration, has become a tough nut to crack.
