NNPP Crisis: Kwankwaso’s Suspension Is a Joke Taken Too Far – Galadima

A chieftain of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Buba Galadima, has said the purported suspension of the party’s 2023 presidential candidate, Senator Rabiu Kwankwas, is a joke taken too far.

Recall that the NNPP Board of Trustees (BoT) after a National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting in Lagos on Tuesday, announced Kwankwaso’s suspension for six months for alleged anti-party activities.

The BoT also claimed that Kwankwaso was also in political discussions with President Bola Tinubu, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Atiku Abubakar; and Labour Party (LP)’s Peter Obi. without authorisation from the party.

Reacting to the development during an appearance on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Tuesday night, Galadima described the suspension as a “Nollywood and Hollywood joke”.

The NNPP stalwart stated that the party is still intact, adding that the leaders of the opposing group had been expelled from the NNPP.

He said: “Now let me make a small correction, those that were expelled were Boniface Okechukwu Aniebonam and Gabriel Agbor Major.

“All of them who were expelled were called to a disciplinary committee. They were drilled and they accepted their sins and it was on the basis of their acceptance that they were recommended to the Nation Working Committee for expulsion.”

Speaking on the accusations of anti-party activities against the former Kano governor, Galadima dismissed the claims, saying: “As a politician, we can meet with anybody.

“He took permission from us. Whatever the case, Kwankwaso had permission from the party to meet with President Tinubu and talk to any other political group. So, he didn’t do this on his own.”

Galadima also accused political adversaries of masterminding the internal wranglings within the party but insisted that the NNPP remains strong.

He said: “A lot of people are interested in this party in the sense that the other parties felt that they could only survive if they destroy this party.

“But unknown to them we are as solid as the Rock of Gibraltar.”
