The details of their meeting which was held in the residence of the Yobe Governor in Abuja has emerged.

Senator Kalu while speaking on behalf of the caucus noted that the caucus came to show their support and pass a vote of confidence on the leadership of the Buni-led committee.
The former Governor also lauded the leadership qualities of the committee and called on him to promote transparency in the party’s activities.
He said: “We need more openness in the party inorder to promote transparency within the party because once the party has transparency in operating in all their activities, things would be easier.”
“It is easier to win an election with popular candidates. It is difficult to win elections when people are imposed. We should avoid the imposition of candidates. You are a very experienced party administrator and governor of the state and you are also very experienced in handling party matters. The caucus of the South East APC want to congratulate you, to enjoin other party members and to reassure you that we are going to work with you.”
The former governor of Abia State reassured South East APC’s commitment to improving its performance in subsequent elections in the zone.
“I want to specially congratulate and to tell you that we are solidly behind you and we shall support you in your quest to do everything transparently. It is important to have transparency in our party congresses. This will make the party have a big footing in the area. We assure you that we, from the SouthEast, shall do better in the next election than we did in past election. We believe that with your honest leadership, the party will go to further heights. How I wish you are not the governor of a state. We shall not be looking for another national chairman because we have trust in you and I know you very well and even your capabilities.”
Governor Buni while speaking appreciated Senator Kalu for the visit and restated the committee’s willingness to work with the South East caucus.
He extolled Kalu’s efforts and contributions to the party’s growth and urged him to continue his good work for the party.

“When I first heard the song I realized that I see a lot of potentials in this boy and I felt like music really uplifts people, it really makes them feel high when they feel low it gets them out of tough times especially in this country and I know that with him winning I felt like he would do more with that win in terms of other people and I felt that with him winning he would do more with that win in terms of people so I felt like he would be able to really touch some peoples life no matter how low or high up.”
A group, George Uboh Whistleblowers Network, has called on Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State to give account of his four years in office.
The group made this known in a letter to Governor Obaseki dated September 14, 2020 and signed by its chairman, George Uboh.
The Whistleblower said if it had requested the anti-graft body and number two citizen of the country to tender their stewardship, Obaseki should promptly respond to its call.
The group, which raised allegations on public spending by the governor, said rendering account is in the spirit of electioneering period.
George Uboh Whistleblowers Network asked the Edo governor to shed light on the financial transactions by his government, including payments for contracts, salaries, Value Added Tax and transfers running to billions of Naira.
The group said explanations would be needed for alleged transfers to banks, ministries, departments and agencies, contractors.
Uboh said: “Although we found suspicious transactions in multiple years, however, the suspicious transactions became rampant and egregious in 2019, hence, our conclusion that Obaseki needs to explain whether or not he misused funds in preparation for the election.”
