Four aggrieved national Assembly candidates contesting 2023 elections on the platform of the New Nigeria Peoples Party in Osun State, on Monday, said their decision to back presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, was an indication of NNPP’s collapsed structure in the state.
This was contained in a press release signed by the leader of the group, Clement Bamigbola, in reaction to the statement credited to the state caretaker chairman of the party, Abdusalam Abiola, who had earlier alleged that the four candidates that declared support for Tinubu, were like liabilities that would not be missed by the NNPP.
It would be recalled that four NNPP candidates; Clement Bamigbola, Osun Central Senatorial, Bolaji Akinyode, Osun West Senatorial, Olalekan Fabayo, and Oluwaseyi Ajayi of Boluwaduro/Ifedayo/Ila, and Ijesa South Federal Constituencies respectively, had dumped NNPP presidential candidate, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso for Tinubu, citing lack of transparency in the running of their party at the national level.
The release by the aggrieved candidates further read in parts, “Our decision to support Asiwaju Bola Tinubu in the 2023 general elections serves as evidence of the Osun NNPP’s imminent collapse.
“It is unfortunate to see the so-called acting chairman referring to the party candidates as irrelevant members. It shows the man in question knows nothing about politics. As at today, NNPP is dead in Osun state.”
