One of the founding fathers and chieftain of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP, Buba Galadima has described the suspension of the party’s national leader, Rabiu Kwankwaso as a “Nollywood and Hollywood joke”.
DAILY POST recalls that a faction of the party on Tuesday suspended Kwankwaso, alongside other members over alleged “anti-party activities in various meetings”.
The group claimed that there was “material evidence” showing that the party’s flagbearer for the February 25, presidential poll has been involved in anti-party activities.
But Galadima, who spoke during a program on Channels TV on Tuesday night, said the leaders of the group which announced Kwankwaso’s suspension had earlier been expelled from the NNPP.
Galadima also insisted that the party is still intact and has no crisis as being peddled.
He said, “When I saw it on social media, I thought it was like a Nollywood or Hollywood joke.
“Now let me make a small correction, those that were expelled were Boniface Okechukwu Aniebonam and Gabriel Agbor Major.
“All of them who were expelled were called to a disciplinary committee. They were drilled and they accepted their sins and it was on the basis of their acceptance that they were recommended to the Nation Working Committee for expulsion.”
Speaking on the alleged anti-party activities, Galadima explained that “as a politician, we can meet with anybody. He took permission from us.”
