COURT/PDP BUNI

The People’s Democratic Party, PDP has dragged Yobe governor, Mai mala Buni to court over taking up the role of chairman, All Progressives Congress, APC caretaker/extraordinary convention planning committee, CECPC.

PDP, in a suit filed at the federal high court sitting in Abuja said holding two executive positions violated the constitution, hence the need for his removal, adding that by serving as APC chairman, the office of Buni and his deputy governor, Idi Gubana have become vacant.

Meanwhile, the legal action had demanded that the PDP candidate in the 2019 election, Umar Damagum and his running mate, Baba Aji, be sworn in.

Governor Buni was appointed the caretaker chairman in June 2020 after the crisis that consumed the National Working Committee, NWC led by former Edo governor, Adams Oshiomhole, however, in reaction to the suit, the APC condemned PDP’S court action, which it described as misplaced and frivolous.

  25. Bir herpetolog yılda ne kadar para kazanıyor?

    Herpetolog olarak para kazanabilir misin? BLS,
    herpetologların maaş verilerini “Zoologlar ve Yaban Hayatı Biyologları” genel kategorisi içinde bildirir.
    Bu sektördeki ortalama maaş, Mayıs 2022’da 63.270 dolardı ve çalışan kolejler
    ve üniversiteler ortalama 62.550 dolar kazanıyorlardı.

  26. Tıbbi laboratuar teknisyeni birinci derece maddelerle (kan, idrar vb.) ve aletlerle
    ilgilidir, ancak hasta ve hasta sahipleri ile de iyi ilişkiler
    kurmak durumundadır. Bu meslek zaman zaman tek başına, zaman zaman işbirliği
    halinde çalışmayı gerektirir. Dikkat edilmediği
    takdirde mikrop bulaşma ihtimali yüksektir.
