- NNPP South West zonal leaders express support for Sen. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso in the face of his suspension by Dr. Boniface Aniebonam’s faction
- The National Vice Chairman (South West) of the NNPP deems the suspension illegal and unfounded
The New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) South West zonal leaders, which included state chairmen and others, backed Sen. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso against Boniface Aniebonam yesterday.
During a statutory South-West zonal executive meeting held yesterday in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, South West leaders gave Kwankwaso, a former governor of Kano State, a vote of confidence.
Remember that Kwankwaso, the party’s presidential candidate in the February 25 election, was recently suspended from the party by Dr Aniebonam’s faction for alleged anti-party activities.
However, the National Vice Chairman (South West) of the NNPP, Prince Ademola Ayoade, described the suspension as illegal and unfounded in a communique read at the end of the meeting.

After the general election, when further questioned to elaborate on his prior comments regarding Datti Baba-Ahmed, the LP vice presidential candidate, Soyinka reaffirmed his commitment to the truth.
