A statement issued by Hussaini Mai-Suleh, the Press Secretary to Yobe State Deputy Governor on Tuesday, said, “The defectors’ decision was due to the exemplary leadership of Gov. Mai Mala Buni’’.

“Babale said he defected to APC because of the leadership style of Mai Mala Buni, the Chairman, APC Caretaker and Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee.”

Gubana also said that the governor was capable of carrying everyone along, irrespective of any political differences.
