The South West Chapter of the New Nigeria People’s Party, (NNPP) has felicitated Kano State Governor, Abba Yusuf on his victory at the Supreme Court, saying the victory has disgraced the political jobbers who were alleged to have carried out hatchets jobs to undermine the party’s victory.
In a release issued on Saturday and signed by the South West Public Relations Officer of the party, Kilamuwaye Badmus, the South West NNPP noted that some political jobbers who are mostly the expelled members from the party worked for the All Progressives Congress, (APC) to frustrate the appeal filed by Yusuf and the NNPP at the Supreme Court but said the Supreme Court’s judgment has disgraced them and make them to be politically dead.
According to the release, “We thank God for the victory of Governor Abba Yusuf at the Supreme Court. The victory has disgraced some political jobbers led by the expelled former Chairman of the party in Ogun State, Mr Olaposi Sunday Oginni who gave fake information about the party to the All Progressives Congress, (APC) thinking they would be rewarded.
“Oginni and his co-travellers try as much as possible to blackmail the party and the governor Kano, Abba Yusuf, lying that he was not a member of the party by the time he contested but has God would have it, they failed woefully.
“All their efforts failed to stop the NNPP’s victory. With Yusuf’s victory, those who carried out the hatchet jobs have failed and our party remains stronger than even before. Their efforts to bring down Governor Yusuf ended in futility.
“We members of the NNPP in the South West hereby congratulate our leaders both in the region and at the national level especially our presidential candidate, Engr. Rabiu Musa Kwakwanso and the party guber candidate in Ogun state, Ambassador Olufemi Ajadi Oguntoyinbo, and others for their efforts, calmness and maturity while the process lasted.
“We call on Governor Yusuf to continue his good works . We know by the grace of God it will be 4+4 .
The victory is just the beginning of the greatness of our party not only in the South West but in the entire country”.
