Kano NNPP Rejects Gov Yusuf’s Suspension, Kwankwaso’s Expulsion, Says Action Was Sponsored By Outside Forces

July 08, (THEWILL) – The Kano State chapter of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), has rejected the suspension of Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf from the party by a faction of the National Executive Committee of the party, describing it as illegal.

The party also dismissed the expulsion of the Leader of the party and its Presidential candidate in the 2023 general elections, Senator Rabi’u Kwankwaso, by the same group.

The party described the suspension as “laughable” as it was carried out by expelled members of the NNPP.

The NNPP Chairman in Kano State, Alhaji Hashimu Suleiman Dungurawa, who sounded the rejection while briefing newsmen in Kano on Monday, also alleged that those who effected the suspension and expulsion were sponsored by “Outside Forces.”

Recall that the National Executive Committee (NEC), of the factional New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), had affirmed the six months suspension of Governor Abba Yusuf and the expulsion of Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso from the party.

The resolution of the party was contained in a communiqué issued on Sunday, and jointly signed by Umar Jibril and Omolara Johnson, following the NEC meeting held on May 27.

Dungurawa also described the purported suspension and expulsion as “unserious” and of no consequence to the party whatsoever.

He wondered how a sponsored group of expelled members of the party could suspend Alhaji Abba Kabir Yusuf, who is the only Governor of the NNPP in the country, and expel Senator Kwankwaso, the party’s National Leader, describing the action as “absurd.”

According to him, the leadership of the party, genuinely mandated by members across the country, would not be distracted by the action of the sponsored group as it is focused on developing the NNPP to continue to provide good governance to all Nigerians.

Equally, the Chairman said, the NNPP as a party remains strong, winning more members across the country, despite the “evil machinations of outside forces.”
