The New Nigeria Peoples Party has distanced itself from supporting any party in its struggle with the court case with President Bola Tinubu.
It admitted that it would not be part of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party Alhaji Atiku Abubakar’s effort to unseat President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Recall that Atiku, during his world press conference on Thursday, called for a coalition of oppositions to wrestle power from Tinubu.
He specifically called on the NNPP presidential candidate, Dr Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, to join him in his quest.
On the contrary, NNPP said it is not in court and doesn’t want to be an interloper in the PDP’s presidential candidate’s case.
During a press briefing yesterday, the acting deputy national chairman of the NNPP, Prince Nwaeze Onu, said they won’t be part of Atiku despite the call.
He stated that he loves the country and will not engage in anything that does not concern the party.
He said, “We are not in court. We love the country. We will not engage in anything that does not concern us. We are only focused on the things that are happening at the level of our party.”
Speaking on the crisis in the party, Onu said: “Our advice to the outsiders fighting the party is to steer clear and stop meddling in the internal affairs of NNPP.
“Let me at this juncture thank INEC for their commitment to the growth of democracy in our country and also for their support to NNPP.”
