Crisis in NNPP worsens as faction expels Kwankwaso



A faction of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), led by Agbo Major, has expelled Rabiu Kwankwaso, the party’s presidential candidate in the 2023 elections.


Last Tuesday, the NNPP’s board of trustees (BoT), led by Boniface Aniebonam, founder of the party, suspended Kwankwaso over allegations of anti-party activities.


However, a faction of the party loyal to Kwankwaso reversed the suspension.


The party’s national executive council had also set up a disciplinary committee to probe allegations of anti-party activities and mismanagement of party funds levelled against Kwankwaso.


The former Kano governor was directed to appear before the committee within five days of getting the invitation.


The NEC had warned that Kwankwaso would be expelled in line with the provisions of the NNPP’s constitution if he failed to appear before the disciplinary committee.


In a statement on Tuesday, Abdulsalam Abdulrasaq, NNPP’s acting national publicity secretary, said NEC resolved to expel him because of his refusal to honour the committee’s invitation.


 “Following the refusal of Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso to appear before the Disciplinary Committee which sat on Thursday 31st August 2023 after being duly invited in writing, he is hereby expelled from New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) with  immediate effect,” Abdulrasaq said.


Abdulrasaq added that Kwankwaso would be reported to appropriate quarters to answer questions on “financial impropriety relating to mismanagement of public funds.”
