How NNPP crisis started

The battle for the control over the NNPP leadership had factionalized the party especially among the loyalists of the founder and the kwakwasiya movement with each camp having its national executives.

Abioro made the call in an exclusive interview with TheTalk.NG, describes the level of the crisis between the two leaders as unfortunate and worrisome.

The Ogun-born politician explained that the political crisis is already destroying the party and the ideology of the founding fathers. He said the development was sending wrong signals to Nigerians and party members in particular.

He added that the NNPP will suffer more consequences, including loss of leaders, members and followers if the two factions failed to toe the path of peace and resolved their differences.

Why Nigerians may no longer trust NNPP

According to him, if the party which promised to give Nigerians a new nation is facing such an internal crisis, no one will believe it has what it takes to rescue the wrecked ship from its current sailors.

His statement reads:

“I wish to send this message to our national leaders within the party, that the ongoing suspension and expulsion and counter-suspension and expulsion from the two factions in the party is a bad omen for NNPP in the larger picture.

“The party leaders must know that they are expected to be a role model worthy of emulation.

“I’m sure many young politicians like me join the NNPP having seen a bright future in it for the young and upcoming politicians who had shown interest in the leadership affairs of the country but It is very discouraging as the crisis is rocking the party from the national to the ward levels”.

He called on the genuine and concerned members of the party not to sit on the fence at this critical time, instead they should join him in compelling the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) to take some effective steps in putting an end to the internal crisis rocking the NNPP.
