Gov Buni bags Politician of the Year award
Governor of Yobe State, Hon. Mai Mala Buni, has been named ‘Politician of the Year’ by UK-based media conglomerate, TheNigerian News.
The governor will be presented with the award at an event to mark the company’s fifth anniversary on December 16th at the NAF Conference Centre, Abuja.
According to a press statement signed by Ms. Bridget Agada, secretary of the award planning committee, in his position as the interim Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Governor Buni has, through deft management and excellent politicking, poured cold water on the fire raging in the party.
Agada noted that the 10-man committee were stunned by the manner Buni seamlessly combined politics and governance, delivering at both ends with massive gains.
The company further applauded the governor for being fair to all in the discharge of his duties.
It added that no wonder at just 54, Buni has risen to an improbable height that would have only been imagined.
“From the brink of imminent collapse, Mai Mala Buni has steered the party onto a safe pasture. The predictions of doom have once again fallen flat; the APC political machine, retooled and freshly oiled by the Yobe Governor, is alive and in motion across the country, successful in its drive to expand and reposition. Mai Mala Buni has put the APC in a better position to consolidate on previous successes,” she added.
The event will be chaired by the Honourable Minister of Special Duties and Inter-Governmental Affairs, Senator (Dr) George Akume while His Royal Highness, The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero is the Royal Father of the Day.
Other distinguished Nigerians set to receive an award at the event includes His Excellency, Ambassador Tukur Burutai, Nigeria’s Ambassador to Benin Republic; His Excellency Govenor Babagana Zulum of Borno State, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim, the Director General, National Youths Service Corps; Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Isiaka Amao; Mananging Director of the Northeastt Development Commission,Mohammed Goni Alkali among others.
