NNPP: Court order you procured too weak to protect you – Oginni blasts Kwankwaso


The National Secretary of the New Nigeria People’s Party, NNPP, Oginni Olaposi Sunday, has told the party’s Presidential candidate in the 2023 general election, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso that the court order he procured is too weak to protect him from EFCC’s invitation, arrest and prosecution.

Oginni, who made this statement while addressing newsmen in Abeokuta, Ogun State, said the magnitude of unprecedented corruption by successive governments and politicians in Nigeria has made nonsense of the nation’s democracy.

“The continuous resistance of former governors to EFCC’s investigations is becoming worrisome.

“It is on record that the New Nigeria People’s Party, NNPP, through its National Secretary, Comrade Oginni Olaposi Sunday has requested that the EFCC investigates Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso and other party officers on the money collected by the party from the sales of nomination forms and campaign funds donations for the 2023 general elections, which was allegedly stolen by Senator Kwankwaso and his cohorts.

“In a dramatic reaction to the imminent EFCC’s investigation, Senator Kwankwaso rushed to the Kano State High Court to ‘procure’ an order to stop the anti-graft agency from inviting him and other alleged corrupt officers for investigation, the same manner in which Yahaya Bello, the immediate past Governor of Kogi State is trying to use Court to frustrate EFCC’s prosecution.

“Nigerians cannot forget in hurry that Yahaya Bello also used Kogi State High Court to ‘procure’ a frivolous order similar to what Senator Kwankwaso also ‘procured’ from Kano State High Court to frustrate EFCC’s investigation and arrest,” he said.

The NNPP scribe said as a law-abiding political party, the NNPP has approached the relevant government agency with the responsibility to deal with corruption in Nigeria.

“We cannot teach the EFCC how to discharge its job. I am very sure that the anti-graft agency is up to the task,” he added.
