The National Secretary of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, Oladipupo Olayokun, has been suspended by his ward for alleged anti-party activities.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria, Olayokun was suspended by the executive members of his local constituency in Ward 5, Abeokuta South Local Government Area of Ogun State.
The suspension of Olayokun was contained in a letter addressed to Olayokun dated August 6 and sent to the party’s presidential candidate, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, and the founder of the party, Boniface Aniebonam.
The letter, which contained his sanction, was officially signed by 25 members of the executive team of the ward, including 25 other ward members.
In the letter, the ward executive accused Olayokun of involvement in anti-party activities, mastermind of the crisis in the party in Ogun, negligence of duty and encouraging factionalism in the party.
The letter read, “The suspension of Your Membership is due to the total neglect of NNPP at the Ward Level, realising you never participated in any party activities.
“In the same Vein, your refusal to vote neither for the Presidential Candidate nor the Governorship Candidate of NNPP at the last General Election was an act of gross indiscipline that must not go unpunished.
“Our investigation at the ward level showed clearly that you committed various offences in contravention to Article 39.2 subsections 1, 2,4,5,6,7 and 11 of NNPP’s 2022 Constitution as amended.
“Consequently, we advise you to Stop parading yourself as a member and National Secretary of this Party.”
