..Accuses Buba Galadima Of Corruption, Illegal Imposition Of Candidates
The new leadership of New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) under Dr Agbo Gilbert Major in its maiden meeting at the Abuja National Secretariat has come up with punching resolutions after a review of the situation resulting from the gross mismanagement of the party in the past one year.
The resolutions reached after the meeting as signed by Ag National Publicity Secretary, Abdulsalam Abdulrasaq are slated to include conducting a thorough probe into the mismanagement of well over one billion naira (N1b) raised from the sale of forms to aspirants between March 2022 till date.
While the meeting resolved to invite relevant security agencies to properly examine the accounts of the party with a view to demanding explanations from the party’s presidential candidate, the party’s chairman who left in March 2023, the sacked acting chairman and the National Secretary. This is to restore confidence of party members / candidates who came forward with their hard earned money to purchase forms.
The party also queried the rationale for location of the Situation Room to the presidential candidate’s personal residence. It noted that the illegal location created room for the massive corruption and manipulation leading to imposition of candidates by Buba Galadima and his co-travellers and resolved to set up a Committee to launch a probe into it.
It therefore called for written complaints from aggrieved candidates who were shortchanged after making payments for forms into the party’s account.
Another resolution reached is resolved to query the rationale behind the denial of other presidential aspirants the right to purchase form and participate in the primary election that illegally produced Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, while insisting that it was against the spirit of fairness and equity which the great party preaches.
The party also confirmed its withdrawal from the Memorandum Of Understanding signed by it with the Kwankwasiya Movement and TNM, insisting that the principles of these two groups are targeted at massaging the ego of its sole owner and so not in line with the party’s policies of openness and inclusivity.
In view of this, the party called on its numerous members and supporters to remain calm in the face of this brazen assault of the Kwankwasiya movement whose members were erroneously made to believe the party is sold to them and called on all aggrieved and displaced members who left for whatever reason to return home.
The New Nigeria People’s party also resolved to overhaul its structures across all levels nationwide in the coming days and weeks.
