We’ve Not Suspended Kano Governor, Says NNPP


The New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) has said its only governor, Abba Kabir Yusuf of Kano State, is not suspended.

At a press conference at NNPP national headquarters in Abuja yesterday, the party’s acting national chairman, Dr Ahmed Ajuji, stated that Governor Yusuf was a respectable member of the party, adding that he was not suspended.

He said, “For record purposes, Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf is a bona fide member of our great party and a worthy ambassador of NNPP whose leadership and unprecedented achievements in Kano State is a thing of pride to us, and as such we have no reason to suspend him. In essence, the NNPP did not suspend our governor,” the chairman said.

According to Ajuji, he amused early this week when those he described as ‘expelled political comedians, hirelings and clowns craving for relevance’ announced the suspension of the party’s action governor Abba Yusuf for attending the NNPP national convention.

“The jokers played back a cracked record and poorly scripted movie of the suspension of the Kano State governor as their sponsors and target audience no longer listen to the endless suspension and expulsion of Engr Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, the national leader of the party.

“These political jobbers were also the ones hired to scuttle Governor Abba Yusuf’s election at the Tribunal, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court, falsely claiming that he was not duly and properly nominated by the party as its candidate for the 2023 general election.

“To God be the glory the Supreme Court Justices in their own wisdom saw through their lies, and agreed with us and INEC that Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf is a bonafide member of NNPP.

“These same set of people have at various times instituted several suits in court challenging the leadership of the party and of late tried to scuttle the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting and the National Convention held on Friday, April 5, 2024 and Saturday, April 6, 2024,” the chairman said, adding that their party is focused on ushering in a new and better Nigeria as exemplified in the good governance of Kano State by Governor Abba Yusuf.

“The party is united and strong in fostering sustainable democracy in Nigeria and Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf is championing this,” he added.
