The National Executive Committee of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) says it has expelled former Kano state governor and its Presidential candidate in 2023 poll, Sen. Rabiu Kwankwaso, over allegations of anti-party activities and mismanagement of party and campaign funds.

His expulsion followed his refusal to appear before the party’s National Executive Council (NEC) disciplinary committee to defend the allegations leveled against him.

This was disclosed in a statement by the Acting National Publicity Secretary of NNPP, Mr Abdulsalam Abdulrasaq.

Persecondnews recalls that Kwankwaso had been earlier suspended by the party’s leadership at the National Convention on August 29 in Lagos.

The NEC had warned that failure to appear before the Disciplinary Committee, Kwankwaso would be expelled from the party in line with the provisions of the party’s constitution 2022 (as amended).

The statement said: “The NEC met in an emergency session on Friday, September 1 and resolved as follows:

“Following the refusal of Sen. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso to appear before the disciplinary committee which sat on Thursday, August 31 after being duly invited in writing, he is hereby expelled from NNPP with immediate effect.

“That the erstwhile presidential candidate, Sen. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso will be reported to appropriate quarters to answer questions on financial impropriety relating to mismanagement of public funds.”
