The Forum of State Chairmen of New Nigeria People’s Party, NNPP, has called for the immediate resignation of of the party’s presidential candidate in the last general election, Rabiu Kwankwaso, or risk indefinite suspension over alleged anti-party activities.
The party chairmen demanded an open explanation of what they described as “unhealthy relationship between Kwankwaso and the All Progressives Congress during and after the general elections.”
A statement by the forum chairman, Sunday Oginni, accused Mr Kwankwaso of fomenting crisis in party across the country in order to take over the control of the party from the original founding fathers.
Mr Oginni insisted that Mr Kwankwaso was only using the platform of NNPP to allegedly negotiate himself back into Nigeria’s political scene.
While frowning at the secret alliance of Mr Kwankwaso and President Bola Tinubu, the forum also accused the presidential candidate of changing the constitution of the party to suit his whims and caprices.
“In the same vein, the recent unconstitutional and purported dissolution of seven states executives of Ekiti, Enugu, Niger, Kaduna Katsina, Rivers and Zamfara from State and Local to the ward levels at the same time is unacceptable.
“It’s on record that neither Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso nor any of his cohorts at the NWC committed a dime to the building of structures of the party they are not ashamed to demolish within a twinkle of an eye. The empty threat of NWC coming in later days for the jugular of Imo and Oyo State shall not see the light of the day.
“Also, the arrogant display of Executive Lawlessness by the NWC in Ogun State Chapter of NNPP has led to protracted litigation that may lingered to Supreme Court.
“The illegality of the arbitrary sacking of democratically elected officers of the party by Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso’s NWC acting like a garrison commander is an heinous crime against democracy and humanity. This is New Nigeria.. Thus illegality and brazen murder of democracy shall not stand in NNPP.
“The hidden truth is revealing Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso is the one behind all these unconstitutional actions of the NWC.
“It’s on record that Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso instructed the uploading of names that never participated in party primaries during the last Governorship Election.”
Mr Oginni also accused Kwankwaso of breaching the agreement on the Memorandum of Understanding he signed with the Founder and Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Boniface Aniebonam.
“Consequently, all the actions of the illegal acting National Chairman and that of the Secretary are null and void.
“We therefore advise the illegal Acting National Chairman and the Secretary Oladipupo Olayoku having been accused of unimaginable corruption and excessive abuse of office to voluntarily resign or face embarrassment of indefinite Suspension.
“The Forum of State Chairmen of New Nigeria People’s Party is hereby using this forum to call on the Founder of this great Party Dr. Boniface Aniebonam to rise up to the occasion by making sure that he revoke the Memorandum of Understanding having been breached by Kwankwaso and bring back our party.
“We are using this opportunity to appeal to Nigerians to be patient and prayerful for the emergence of new Nigeria of our collective dreams,” the forum added.
