We Didn’t Suspend Kwankwaso From NNPPP – NWC

The news about Kano State former Governor of Kano State, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, being suspended from the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) is not true, said the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, the Board of Trustees (BoT) of the NNPP announced that it had suspended the party’s National leader and 2023 presidential candidate, Senator Kwankwaso, for six months for alleged anti-party activities.

Akelicious reports that Kwankwaso’s suspension was announced yesterday at the end of a parallel National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting held in Lagos State.

Secretary of the BoT, Babayo Muhammed Abdullahi, while addressing journalists at the end of the meeting, said the BoT also suspended the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party.

The development has since generated a barrage of reactions across boards.

However, in a statement issued on Wednesday, August 30, 2023, the party’s NWC refuted the purported suspension of Rabiu Kwankwaso.

The party’s national auditor, Ladipo Johnson, who spoke at a news conference today at the NNPP national headquarters in Abuja, declared that the suspension was null and void.

Akelicious reports that Johnson was the former spokesperson for the Kwankwaso Presidential Campaign Council.

Johnson said during the press that Aniebonam and Agbo were suspended for three months on Aug. 24 for engaging in unwholesome acts before they were later expelled from the party.

He added that the party’s NEC, at its meeting on Tuesday in Abuja monitored by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), took certain decisions, including the election of new national officials, the change of the party’s logo, and the expulsion of Aniebonam and Agbo.

“Is it not funny that all those people either suspended or expelled would gather somewhere and claim to have suspended Kwankwaso and also dissolve 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 added.
