The National Legal Adviser of the New Nigeria Peoples (NNPP), Robert Hon, yesterday restated that the party’s Board of Trustees (BoT) lacks the constitutional mandate to suspend the Presidential candidate of the party, Rabiu Kwankwaso.
He explained that the only competent body to suspend Kwankwaso is the National Executive Committee (NEC), which must comply, with due process.
To this extent, he described the purported suspension of Kwankwaso, as a figment of the imagination, of a non-existent BoT, who have since been dissolved.
Hon disclosed that the party held an emergency meeting in Abuja, at the end of which all the party’s stakeholders from the 37 states, including Abuja passed a vote of confidence on Kwankwaso.
He noted further that the party hierarchy just ended a meeting attended by Senators, Governors, and stakeholders from all the 37 states, including Abuja, adding that they collectively passed a vote of confidence on Kwankwaso.
