Team Bucs is battling it out for party positions with the current party president Duma Boko’s team. “Our concerns stem principally but not exclusively from the fact that there are currently pending issues relating to the preparation and conduct of the planned congress.

The development has compelled us to issue this statement to inform the BNF members and the nation at large of the worrisome situation within the BNF," reads the press statement in part.
