The NNPP chairman noted that the people who signed a communique that announced the suspension of Messrs Kwankwaso and Yusuf have since been expelled from the party for alleged anti-party activities.

This Day quoted Dungurawa as saying:

“Let me be clear to you that those people who said they suspended Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf, and expelled Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, were long ago expelled from the party over alleged anti-party activities and connivance with opposition to create problems in our party.

“I wondered how a sponsored group of expelled members could suspend Abba Kabir Yusuf.”
