NNPP denies accusing Nigerian Govt of plotting emergency rule in Kano


The New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP, has distanced itself from the allegation that the Federal Government was planning to declare emergency rule in Kano State.

The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Abdulsalam Abdulrasaq, made the clarification in a statement in Abuja on Wednesday.

According to him, the unfounded allegation credited to the party’s 2023 presidential candidate, Rabiu Kwankwaso, did not represent the party’s views.

Abdulrasaq said that the party had long expelled Kwankwaso from its fold, alongside some of his supporters in the Kwankwasiya Movement, for alleged anti-party activities.

He said aside being the party’s candidate in 2023, Kwankwaso does not speak for the party.

“Kwankwaso speaks for himself and we totally disagree with him on the allegation and undue interference in the Kano Emirate saga.

“It is an aberration for Kwankwaso to refer to himself as the national leader of the NNPP.

“The NNPP strongly believe the Emirate tussle in Kano State is an internal traditional issue and can be resolved by the indigenes of the state.

“As a party, NNPP cannot be dragged into the Emirate Tussle under any circumstance, in spite the fact that the governor is our member,” he said.
