10 state chairmen of the New Nigeria Peoples Party have called for the dissolution of the party’s National Working Committee.
The Chairmen from 10 states who passed a vote of no confidence on members of the Abba Kawu-led NWC, said they are rejecting the leadership because of their inability to properly manage the affairs of the party.
According to AIT News, the State Chairmen include those of Ekiti, Enugu, Rivers, Zamfara, Kastina, Kaduna, Niger among others.
They addressed journalists on Sunday in Ado-Ekiti, where the host Chairman, Olayinka Dada accused the party’s NWC of working only in the interest of the party’s former Presidential Candidate, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso against the overall interest of the party.
Dada also accused the former Presidential candidate and one-time Governor of Kano State of attempting to hijack the party, with the aim of solely controlling the structure and hijacking it from the original founder, Bonniface Aniebonam.
Dada, further stated that the Chairmen from the 10 states would not accept plans to rubbish Aniebonam because he remains the leader of the party, despite attempts to undermine him in the scheme of the party hierarchy.
