Kwankwaso faction reverses his NNPP suspension, expels Agbo, others
The Kwankwaso faction of the NNPP has held a parallel meeting of the National Executive Committee in Abuja to reverse his suspension.
The faction announced the expulsion of the new acting national chairman of the party, Major Agbo and some notable members involved in the NNPP flag bearer’s sanction.
The move is coming hours after Kwankwaso was said to have been suspended by the party’s Board of Trustees for alleged anti-party activities for six months.
The decision to sanction Kwankwaso and appoint new national officers that included Agbo, acting National Secretary, Ogini Olaposi, and 18 others was taken at a NEC meeting in Lagos earlier on Tuesday.
Reacting, the national auditor of the party, Ladipo Johnson, described Kwankwaso’s suspension as an illegitimate move.
Johnson, who claimed he was the chairman of the disciplinary committee that subsequently expelled Agbo and his loyalists at the NEC meeting in Abuja, affirmed that there was no division in the party as being speculated.
He said, “It is a fake news. Do you hold NEC meetings in the Apapa area of Lagos? Of course, it is not the proper thing to do. We held NEC in Abuja today.
Kano NNPP chairman clears air
The Kano State chairman of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Hashimu Dungurawa, has reacted to the report of the alleged suspension of the national leader of the party, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso.
Dungurawa denied Kwankwaso’s suspension, noting that, “right now, he is attending a well-represented NEC meeting of the party in Abuja.”
He insisted that Kwankwaso is held in high esteem within the NNPP and is recognised as a legitimate leader, making the allegations of suspension false and damaging to his reputation.
He said, “Kwankwaso is the leader of the party and for somebody to come out with a fake news of his suspension is tantamount to dragging his names and hard earned reputation to the mud.
“I am presently in Abuja where the party executive is holding a meeting. There was nothing like that,” he emphasised.
