Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso’s faction of the New Nigeria Peoples Party has expelled the new acting National Chairman of the party, Major Agbo and some notable members involved in the presidential candidate’s 6-months suspension. The faction held a parallel meeting to reverse Kwankwaso’s suspension over alleged anti-party activities late on Tuesday, August 29. Recall that the decision to sanction Kwankwaso and appoint new national officers that included Agbo, was taken at another factional NEC meeting in Lagos earlier on Tuesday, August 29. Prior to the NEC session, Agbo and founder of the party, Dr Boniface Aniebonam had allegedly been on suspension since August 24. Aniebonam and Agbo had kicked against their suspension, insisting that if any member deserved to be punished, it ought to be the presidential candidate of the party over his alleged suspicious activities in recent times. Confirming the suspension of Agbo and Aniebonam by a faction loyal to Kwankwaso, National Auditor of the party, Ladipo Johnson said; It is a fake news. Do you hold NEC meetings in the Apapa area of Lagos? Of course, it is not the proper thing to do. We held NEC in Abuja today.The Agbo you talked about has been expelled along with some other people. He was the one doing all this nonsense and thats because you know him as national publicity secretary. Who made him acting chairman? Ask yourself, is that how one becomes a chairman? I dont like your use of the word faction. Is that how one creates a faction? If you come to NNPP headquarters, you will see us there.You will also see that Agbos office has been locked for over a week. And he didnt even go to any court to say what we did was wrong. They are the judges themselves and they are the ones you should be calling a faction. Thats because they were suspended and eventually expelled from the party. Let me send you a statement on the NEC we just held. NNPP also released a statement, announcing the expulsion of Agbo, a new party logo and constitutional amendments. It read; At the National Executive Committee meeting of the NNPP held in Abuja today August 29, Dr Boniface Aniebonam, Agbo Major and several others were expelled from the party.The NEC also moved several other motions relating to the Logo of the party, the Amendment of the constitution, ratification of the State caretaker committees, and the suspension of two Articles in the constitution of the NNPP 2022.At the meeting were the Executive Governor of Kano State, the National Chairman, Distinguished Senator Kawu Ismaila, the Speaker of the Kano State House of Assembly, Engr Buba Galadima and many others.NEC noted that there were suspended (now expelled) persons who purportedly held a Board of Trustees meeting in Apapa, Lagos this morning. Naturally, their meeting was null and void and to no effect. The post Kwankwaso’s faction of NNPP suspends Agbo appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
