It took some time for us to have this replacement but what is more important is that at the end of the day we are able to come to a resolution and the new National Secretary has been sworn in today.

“We hope he will work with other leaders and consolidate on the gains of the party. I know Architect Buluma in the last 40 years.

“I know that he is the person of impeccable character, a person that you can vouch for and is very hard working. He knows what to do.

“In fact, he has already started doing that trying to work and carry everybody around so that APC should deliver on its mandate and that is what he going to do”.

Bulama, who would been inaugurated as the National Secretary since March, had his appointment opposed by a section led the National Vice Chairman from his North-east zone, Mustapha Salihu.
