KANO: NNPP not in any merger talks, open to alliance – Jibrin Kofa

KANO: NNPP not in any merger talks, open to alliance – Jibrin Kofa

The New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP) is open to allying with the All Progressives Congress (APC), according to Abdulmumin Jibrin Kofa, a member of the House of Representatives who represents the Kiru and Bebeji Federal Constituency.

In a message he shared on his X account on Friday, Mr Jibrin refuted rumours circulating in the media that his party, the NNPP, is in merger negotiations with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The statement read: “Our attention has been drawn to a widely circulated message on some sections of the media that our great party, NNPP is in talks with the PDP and other parties for possible coalition.

“There is no any element of truth in this. It’s a blatant lie. Our party has consistently maintained a neutral stand that we are open to collaboration, alliance, and even merger with the APC, PDP, LP and any other political party.

“There is presently no any talk whatsoever ongoing and the party did not attend any meeting to discuss coalition or merger with PDP or any other party. It is an act of mischief makers and should be regarded as such.”

Special prayers were said on Monday in Kano for President Bola Tinubu and Sen. Rabiu Kwankwaso, the National Leader of the NNPP, according to a different statement made by the lawmaker’s media assistant, Sani Paki.

In his brief remarks at the event, Mr Kofa said his relationship with Mr Tinubu is no secret.
