The New Nigeria Peoples Party’s (NNPP) National Working Committee (NWC) has denied reports that its 2023 presidential candidate, Rabiu Kwankwaso, has been suspended.
This was announced at a press conference held on Wednesday at the NNPP national headquarters in Abuja by the party’s national auditor, Ladipo Johnson.
Former Kwankwaso Presidential Campaign Council spokesperson Johnson said the suspension was illegal.
Kwankwaso was suspended for six months on Tuesday following a parallel National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting in Lagos, presided over by Boniface Aniebonan, the former chairman of the party’s Board of Trustees (BoT).
Major Agbo, formerly the party’s national publicity secretary, was promoted to the position of interim national chairman.
But according to Johnson, Aniebonam and Agbo were ejected from the party after being suspended for three months on August 24 for participating in unwholesome behavior.
He also said that the party’s NEC elected new national officials, changed the party’s logo, and expelled Aniebonam and Agbo at a meeting on Tuesday in Abuja overseen by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Is it not amusing that all the people who were either removed or demoted would get together and claim to have removed Kwankwaso and dissolved the NWC?
“The jokers also appointed a CTC made up of those people who have ceased to be members of the party by virtue of our constitution,” he continued.
