A former Kaduna Central lawmaker, Shehu Sani has reacted to the suspension of Rabiu Kwankwaso, by the board of trustees (BoT) of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).

HeraldNG recalls that the suspension of Kwankwaso, the party’s presidential candidate in the February 25 election, was announced on Tuesday at the end of a meeting held in Lagos.

According to the party’s BoT, Kwankwaso’s suspension is for a period of six months.

The NNPP BoT also suspended the national working committee (NWC) of the party and appointed new officers, which include Agbo Major as the acting national chairman.

Speaking with journalists after the meeting, the secretary of the BoT, Babayo Muhammed Abdullahi, accused Kwankwaso of engaging in political discussions with President Bola Tinubu, Atiku Abubakar of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP), without the board’s authorisation.

Abdullahi said the party’s BoT has stripped Kwankwaso of national leader recognition.

Reacting to the suspension, Sani said that NNPP would have remained in the shadows without Kwankwaso.

Speaking via Twitter, he wrote, “Without Kwankwaso, NNPP would have been unknown.I think the party have just gotten their own Lamidis.”
