We’re not part of your court case against Tinubu, NNPP tells Atiku

Published

The New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) has said it would not be part of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Alhaji Atiku Abubakar’s effort to unseat President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

During a world press conference on Thursday, Atiku called for a coalition of oppositions to wrestle power from Tinubu.

He specifically called on the NNPP presidential candidate, Dr Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, to join him in his quest.

But, according to the NNPP, it is not in court and doesn’t want to be an interloper in the PDP’s presidential candidate’s case.

At a press conference yesterday, the acting deputy national chairman of the NNPP, Prince Nwaeze Onu, said they won’t be part of Atiku despite the call.

His words:

“We are not in court. We love the country. We will not engage in anything that does not concern us. We are only focused on the things that are happening at the level of our party.”

Speaking on the crisis in the party, Onu said: “Our advice to the outsiders fighting the party to steer clear and stop meddling in the internal affairs of NNPP.

“Let me at this juncture thank INEC for their commitment to the growth of democracy in our country and also for their support to NNPP.”

– Nnamdi Kanu seeks negotiation with FG over ongoing trial
– Kanu’s lawyer moves two applications before the Federal High Court
– FG’s counsel says defendant should approach Attorney General for negotiation

Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has expressed willingness to negotiate with the Federal Government over his ongoing trial.

Through his counsel, Alloy Ejimakor, Kanu informed the Federal High Court in Abuja of his intention to seek negotiation under Section 17 of the Federal High Court Act.

Ejimakor had earlier moved two applications before the court, including one objecting to the jurisdiction of the court. If the applications are denied, Kanu’s lawyer plans to invoke Section 17, which promotes reconciliation and amicable settlement among parties.

Meanwhile, the Federal Government’s counsel, Adegboyega Awomolo, stated that the defendant should approach the Attorney General of the Federation for negotiation.

Justice Binta Nyako, the presiding judge, clarified that the court’s role is to hear cases, not to solicit negotiations. Kanu has been in DSS custody since June 2021, facing terrorism-related charges levelled against him by the government.

His lawyer’s latest move may signal a potential shift in the case’s trajectory.
