The National Working Committee, (NWC) of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) has warned the general public against the action and utterances of some expelled members of the party who it said have been hired to disparage some leaders of the party including the Kano State Governor, Abba Yusuf and the party’s Presidential Candidate in the last election, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwakwanso.
According to a release issued on Monday and signed by Ladipo Johnson (Esq) on behalf of the NNPP National Working Committee under the leadership of Ag. National Chairman Hon. Abba Kawu, “certain expelled members of the party which include Tope Aluko and some ex state chairmen, who are sponsored elements, are conducting a press conference in Jabi, Abuja to falsely state as a form of propaganda, that H.E. Abba Kabir Yusuf was not a member of the NNPP as at the time of the election and that His Excellency, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso is dismissed from the party”.
The party said these allegations are totally false and inaccurate.
“We state that the Kano State Governor was a bonafide member of the NNPP at all material times and that we have confidence in the Supreme Court of Nigeria that justice will be done.
“These hired/paid hands who seem to be lackeys in the hands of the APC national Chairman, Ganduje, seem to have “sold their souls” and will do anything for pecuniary gains at the expense of the Nigerian electorate.
“We remind the general populace that Chief Boniface Aniebonam, one of the founders of the NNPP, recently spoke out in favour of Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf and asked that his election be upheld.
“Therefore it is a mystery that some of his loyalists would stoop so low as to become hired hands to misinform Nigerians.
“In conclusion we urge that Nigerians ignore the false statements by these enemies of the Nigerian electorate”, the party said
