NNPP Expels Kwankwaso Over Alleged Anti-Party Activities

Crisis rocking the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) is festering like sore as a faction of the party  under the leadership of Major Agbo has expelled the presidential candidate of the party, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, over his alleged anti-party activities and misappropriation of party campaign funds.

The latest  development is coming barely three days after the factional leaders vowed to probe the former Kano governor and some of his loyalists over alleged misappropriation of over N1bn, generated from the sale of nomination forms.

The NNPP factional National Publicity Secretary, Abdulsalam Abdulrasaq, announced the expulsion of Kwankwaso in a statement issued in Abuja, the nation’s capital on Tuesday, 5 September, 2023.

According  to the statement, the decision to expel Kwankwaso with immediate effect was taken after he failed to appear before the disciplinary panel to defend himself over the allegations of “gross anti-party activities and mismanagement of party campaign funds within five days.”

Abdulrasaq, however, explained that his expulsion was done in line with the provisions of the party’s 2022 constitution as amended.

 “The NEC met in an emergency session on Friday, September 1, and resolved that following the refusal of Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso to appear before the disciplinary committee, which sat on Thursday, August 31, after being duly invited in writing, he is hereby, expelled from NNPP with immediate effect.

“That the erstwhile presidential candidate, Sen. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso will be reported to appropriate quarters to answer questions on financial impropriety relating to mismanagement of public funds,” the spokesperson of the party said in the statement.
