A chieftain of All Progressive Congress (APC), Alh Hassan Alwan, has accused Yobe State Governor and APC Caretaker Committee Chairman Mai Mala Buni of using his position to extort money from contestants.
Alwan, a pro-Osibanjo campaigner, disclosed this on Channels Television’s “Sunday Politics” program on February 20, 2022.
Buni was also accused by the party chieftain of requesting a bribe from Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.
Alwan alleged that “because he doesn’t want to go, Buni doesn’t want to quit the party, he’s using the party platform to collect money from individuals who are contesting, that’s what he does.”
“When the judgment of appeal court came on Thursday and it was in favour of the Kano state government, and the Kano governor asked Mai Mala to issue a certificate of return to the substantive chairman, do you know what he said, he requested for money.”
“He requested the governor gives him money before he issues the certificate…. is that not fraudulent?” he asked.
“His excellency the governor Kano state is alive today, Mai Mala Buni is alive, you could ask from them. He requested for money.”
