The Kogi State chapter of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) said on Thursday that the party will soon be receiving defectors from the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
The chairman of NNPP in the state, Alhaji Ahmadu Abdullahi Usman, a.k.a. Angulu Hukuma, disclosed that some aggrieved members of APC and PDP in Kogi have concluded plans to join his party before the 2023 general election in the state.
Speaking to reporters in Lokoja, the state capital, Angulu Hukuma assured that the calibre of people already in talks with the party would give NNPP an edge in the coming election noting that the presence of Kwankwaso has boosted the image of NNPP.
The NNPP State Chairman expressed confidence that the party would be an alternative for the aggrieved members of PDP and APC.
He promised that NNPP would give a level playing ground for the new members.
‘When I interacted with some of those we will receive, they cited marginalisation and internal wranglings as some of the reasons for dumping their different parties. Then I realized that with proper internal democracy we operate in NNPP, we will surely have a good day during the forthcoming election,’ he stated.
He said that the party is open for any intending aspirants into various offices in the forthcoming 2023 general elections.
