Buhari’s recommendation was thereafter approved by the party’s National Executive Council (NEC) and a caretaker NWC recommended to take over in the interim.

Following the NEC approval, Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni has been appointed as the Chairman Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Committee of the party.

The NEC also ratified all decisions taken in respect of the Edo Guber Primaries which means Osagie Ize-Iyamu can now be recognized by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as the authentic candidate of the APC in the September 19, 2020, governorship election in Edo State.
