NNPP to Ganduje: Leave our party out of your self-inflicted travails 


The New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) has exonerated itself from the travails of the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr Umar Ganduje, saying it has no hand in the suspension from his party ward as well as his matter in court.

Speaking at a press conference in Abuja on Thursday, the Acting National Chairman, Dr Ajuji Ahmed, also stated that contrary to insinuations, the travails of Ganduje was not aimed at paving the way for the NNPP leader, Rabiu Kwankwaso and Kano state governor, Abba Yusuf, to have a smooth working relationship with President Bola Ahmed Tinubu against 2027 presidential election.

Dr Ahmed also said there was no truth in the purported suspension of the Kano state governor. 

“Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf is a bonafide member of our great party and worthy ambassador of NNPP whose leadership and unprecedented achievements in Kano state is a thing of pride and as such, we have no reason to suspend him.

“Also, it came to our notice that the suspended National Chairman of the APC, Alhaji Abdullahi Ganduje, yesterday claimed that his travails i.e. his suspension and criminal case were engineered by our national leader, Senator Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso and Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf. 

“We must state categorically that our leaders have nothing to do with this claim and Alhaji Ganduje should face his self inflicted travails and not use the NNPP or its leaders as distractions from the facts.”
