NNPP Crisis Worsens As Kwankwaso Subtly Moves To Change Logo, Constitution

Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso
The New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), which is led by Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, is about to face a deeper crisis as a result of a move to amend the party’s logo and constitution.
Recall that Kwankwaso, the NNPP’s presidential candidate, had been expelled from the party by another faction led by Major Agbo for alleged anti-party conduct and misappropriation of party campaign funds.
In a statement issued on Tuesday, Abdulsalam Abdulrasaq, the NNPP’s factional National Publicity Secretary, announced Kwankwaso’s expulsion.
According to Saturday PUNCH, the Kwankwaso camp has begun subtle moves to amend the logo and constitution allegedly to weaken the grip of the party’s founder, Dr Boniface Aniebonam.
Confirming the move to amend the NNPP’s constitution, the National Auditor of NNPP, Ladipo Johnson, however, denied the move was a response to the emergence of a faction within the NNPP.
He said: “No, it has nothing to do with any faction. It was something we already discussed at the NEC. Unlike them (Agbo faction), we are serious people. But we haven’t changed the logo yet. We are planning to throw it out there for our members to compete and come up with ideas.”
The Acting National Chairman of the faction, Major Agbo, responded by telling The PUNCH that they were aware of the subtle move and believed it was intended to take away the founder’s immunity.
He said, “Obviously, the proposed amendment to the constitution and changing of logo they are talking about was deliberate. That was because they discovered suddenly that the man they are after (the founder) has immunity by the provision of that constitution. That’s why they are in a hurry to amend it.”
