NNPP disowns Gov. AbdulRazaq’s new appointees



The New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) said the three newly appointed special aides by Governor Abdul-Rahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara are not its members.

The state Chairman of the party, Malam AbdulSalam AbdulRazaq, made this known in a statement made available to newsmen in Ilorin on Thursday.

AbdulRazaq recently appointed four members of the NNPP as his Special Advisers as a redemption of his inclusive governance.

But the party chairman asserted that the appointees were not known to the NNPP in the state.

“The appointments were not routed through the party, as there was no nomination or input from the party members and executives.

“The state leaders of the party observed that the persons who benefited from the appointment are ‘Talban group members’ and not NNPP.

“The party noted that moves by the former gubernatorial candidate of the party, Prof. Shuaibu AbdulRaheem, was a one-man arrangement and not in the interest of the party,” he said.

The chairman revealed that during the build-up to the just concluded general election, there were negotiations from different contestants and parties to join forces with NNPP, which the party turned down.

“NNPP in Kwara is not collapsing its structures with APC or any political party.

“We remain focused and also call on Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq to lift bans on local government elections as soon as possible, as NNPP is fully prepared to fill candidates in all 16 local government areas of the state,” the chairman stated.
