BREAKING: NNPP Expels Kwankwaso From Party

The NEC had expelled Kwankwaso with immediate effect because of his refusal to honour the committee’s invitations.

The New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) National Executive Committee has ousted Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso due to his reported failure to attend a hearing before the party’s Disciplinary Committee.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recollects that Sen. Rabiu Kwankwaso, who ran as the NNPP’s Presidential Candidate in 2023, had previously faced suspension by the party’s leadership during the National Convention held on August 29 in Lagos.

Recall that the National Executive Council (NEC) of the NNPP established a Disciplinary Committee and instructed them to extend an invitation to Kwankwaso within a five-day period to allow him to address allegations of severe anti-party activities and mismanagement of party/campaign funds.

Consequently, Mr Abdulsalam Abdulrasaq, the Acting National Publicity Secretary of NNPP, said in a statement on Tuesday in Lagos, that the NEC had expelled Kwankwaso with immediate effect because of his refusal to honour the committee’s invitations.
