NNPP petitions Kwankwaso, 13 others to EFCC over alleged fraud

Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, the NNPP’s candidate for the 2023 presidential election, together with 13 other individuals have been hauled before the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) by the party over allegations of fraud.

The petition signed by the National Secretary of the party, Oginni Olaposi Sunday, and sighted by Vanguard in Abeokuta, was titled: ‘Petition against Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso and 13 others over mismanagement of NNPP funds’, was dated 2nd May, 2024 and was submitted to the EFCC headquarters, in Abuja same day.

The petitioner, Oginni said, “in 2022, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso through his representatives, led by Elder Buba Galadima and other very well respected Nigerians, which include but not limited to Senator Hunkuyi Suleiman and Prof. Bem Angwe approached the leadership of the NNPP at the country home of Dr. Boniface Okechukwu Aniebonam; founder of our great party.

“Present at the meeting, were the original members of our great party, including the current National Chairman of the party, Dr Major Agbo Gilbert and the expelled National Secretary of the party, Mr Dipo Olayoku”.

“Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso requested through his representatives for an opportunity to contest for the office of the President of Nigeria on our political party platform.

“We obliged him at no cost with a memorandum of understanding entered into and duly signed by both parties.

“Accordingly, the National Executive Committee was dissolved and new officers elected to run the party. We did this with a very clean mind, but unknown to us, Senator Kwankwaso just wanted to use our political party to propagate the kwankwasia movement and equally use it for political gains.

Oginni added, “as events unfolds, we realise that Senator Rabiu Musa kwankwaso was not interested in the presidential election, but rather using the platform to enrich himself”.
