‘Illegal convention’: NNPP slams 6-month suspension on Kano governor 

The New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) has suspended the Kano state Governor Abbah Kabir Yusuf for participating in what it described as an ” illegal / factional national convention” of NNPP held in Abuja.

The embattled governor was suspended for six months by the party.

Yusuf, popularly known as Gida, Gida suspension was announced at a press briefing in Abuja on Tuesday at the party national secretariat.

The national secretary of the party, Comrade Oginni Olaposi Sunday, who briefed the press, also chided former governor of Kano state, Rabiu Musa Kwakwanso, expressing regrets that he was being overrated.

Addressing journalists, the party scribe restated that the decision to suspend the governor was unanimous and was with the approval of the party’s Board of Trustees.

While reeling out the governor’s many sins, Oginni stated: “Nigerians need to know the position of New Nigeria People’s Party following the failure of the governor to appear before the disciplinary committees as directed by the Board of Trustees of NNPP.

“The leadership of the NNPP in order to strengthen our internal disciplinary and democratic measures most especially in the area of party supremacy without prejudice is left with no any other options than to decisively take necessary action according to the letters of NNPP Constitution 2022 as amended.

The controversial convention that led to the governor’s suspension, it would be recalled, took place at A Class Event Center a few days ago.
