Preceding to June 2020, there was euphoria from other oppositions politicians camps and even some political analysts were writing off that governing All Progressives Congress (APC) party was on the brink of either serious leadership crisis or that the party might be in its last days. But like a miracle, the parry found a lasting solution by dissolution of the National Working Committee (NWC), led by Adams Oshiomhole.

The award conferred on the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) chairman, Governor Mai Mala Buni, as Politician of the Year at the 2021 Annual Conference and Awards Ceremony of Leadership Media Group, Is a mark of recognition of his led committee in retooling the ruling governing party and also a convincible pointer and a well deserved award on this humble grassroot politician and in addition, a morale booster to serve Yobeans and the country at large.

HMB reconciliation drive saved the party from being a divided party. APC witnessed gale of defections to the party, from its closest rival, the Peoples Democratic Party governors, federal and state legislators and other influential political leaders across the country.

In fact, HMB proved himself as a huge asset to the ruling governing party and the country that his three decades experience in politics are giving the party a sense of direction as National Caretaker and Extra-ordinary Convention Committee members acted together in ensuring party discipline, and cohesion are made sacrosanct and are imbibed by members by high and low.

The hallmark of a great leader is not measured in castle and materials, but in the ability to groom and lead successful discipline. The caretaker committee under Gov. Buni had regained the party and made it stronger and able to put the party back on track by first; addressing all the grievances that, in the first place, brought it to its knees.

Governor Buni’s as “Politician of the Year 2021′ is not borne out of sheer vain glorious imaginations but a great opportunity to write about a strategist and a grassroot politician and a great achiever of transforming socioeconomic and infrastructural development of Yobe.
