NNPP crisis: Party’ll emerge stronger

By Sunday Ani

The Founder of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Dr Boniface Aniebonam, has assured party members, loyalists and Nigerians that the party would come out stronger from the current internal crisis rocking it.

He gave the assurance in a statement yesterday in Lagos.

He said: “What shall make us great in NNPP is the ability of members to resolve this internal crisis to the glory of God.

“It is, therefore, incumbent on all members to think out of the box and reason responsibly to find a lasting solution to the internal leadership crisis

“Let it be said and clearly understood by members that trouble is not the way going forward, if we must enhance productivity in our endeavour.”

Aniebonam enjoined members to respect and abide by the constitutional provisions of the party and the grand norm of the Federal Republic of Nigeria

He emphasised that police and court actions remained constitutional in conflict resolution, but stressed that the option of a round table conversation was paramount for members to find a lasting solution to any crisis.

He pointed out that Sen. Rabiu Kwankwaso, the Kwankwasiya movement and other expelled members of the NNPP, despite the odds, injected an additional value to the growth and popularity of the party.

“NNPP came into existence in 2002 and has done great to remain afloat as a registered political party in Nigeria, winning elective positions.

“The emergence of Kwankwaso and his kwankwasiya movement enhanced the NNPP’s political status in Nigeria.

“Winning a state like kano and several other positions are the tonic required to move on and expand our scope in Nigeria,” Aniebonam said.

He pointed out that as the founder and life member of the board of trustees of the party, he remained a father to all, and would wish for nothing less than total peace for the party.

He urged party members to be law abiding, and pray for Nigeria and its leadership to achieve the set objectives of the renewed hope for the county .

“The most important thing now is our capacity and ability to take advantage and advance the course of our objectives to enthrone a new Nigeria of our dreams.

“However, it is my hope that Kwankwaso, my very good friend and brother, may take a second look at some of the unemployed characters around him to save his dwindling fortunes in politics, as well as his earned honour and respect in Nigeria.

“His silence and changing the logo, flag, colour and mutilation of the party’s constitution suggest that he is totally in support of the avoidable circumstances in the party.

” To me, he is challenging God and the law of natural justice because conversion without the consent of the rightful owners is cheating, criminal and a betrayal of trust.

“I strongly believe that the NNPP shall come out stronger after this internal crisis. God bless everyone,” he stated.
