The Board of Trustees (BoT) of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) has suspended its presidential candidate in the 2023 election, Sen. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso for alleged anti-party activities. Kwankwaso was suspended alongside 18 others for six months by the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party. The suspensions were put to a voice vote by members of the party at its special general assembly, held at the Rockview Hotels in Apapa, Lagos. Addressing newsmen at the end of the meeting in Lagos on Tuesday, August 29, Secretary of the BoT, Babayo Muhammed Abdulahi, accused Kwankwaso of hobnobbing with President Bola Tinubu, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, and the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) Mr. Peter Obi, without the boards authorisation. Abdullahi announced that Kwankwaso had been stripped of the NNPP national leader status by the board for allegedly violating the partys constitution. Abdullahi said; The purported suspension of the founder is a flagrant gross violation of the NNPP constitution such that it is tantamount to recklessness and irresponsibility on the part of the incompetent NWC.The BoT decided that material evidence in the public sector affirmed that Kwankwaso was involved in anti-party activities in various meetings, suggest political discussions with the President, Atiku, and Obi without authorisation from the board.This has earned him six months suspension pending the outcome of investigation by the Disciplinary Committee. The BOT insisted that the avoidable violation of MoU between NNPP on the one part and Kwankwaso, TNM and NAGAFF on the other has no other choice than to withdraw from the partnership.It is therefore to state clearly that the MOU has been rendered void.The post NNPP BoT suspends Kwankwaso appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
