NNPP Called Buhari to Issue Warning to APC Governors

Following the incident in which thugs attacked Atiku’s vehicle in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state, the New Nigerian People’s Party (NNPP) urged President Muhammadu Buhari to contact the progressive governors.

In a statement released on Thursday and bearing Dr. Agbo Major’s signature as National Publicity Secretary, the NNPP made the announcement.

Recall that numerous vehicles in Atiku’s convoy were vandalised, and there were reportedly roughly 70 people hurt during the event.

The NNPP contends that to preserve Nigeria’s arduously attained democracy, Buhari had to issue a warning to the APC governors.

Prior to the pivotal 2023 general election, which would redefine and reroute the course of the nation, the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential campaign convoy, or NNPP, condemned the attack on the party and called it disgusting, savage, and ugly.

The party urged Nigerians and the government to denounce and oppose this heinous act. In place of our beloved rule of law, tolerance, and togetherness in diversity, it portrayed the offenders as anti-democratic forces that wish to impose the rule of might and thuggery.

The party stated that the most recent assault on the nation’s flimsy democracy demonstrates the desperation and intolerance displayed by opposing political parties by the departing All Progressives Congress in Borno State.

It stated, “In August this year, our great party, the NNPP was a victim of this political intolerance and executive recklessness in the state when Governor Babagana Zulum was jittery over the ever-increasing popularity and acceptance of the party’s Presidential Candidate, His Excellency, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso (FNSE), PhD invited the police to seal off NNPP’s two secretariats in Maiduguri, the state capital ahead of his visit to commission the secretariats.

“The national outcry it generated forced the police to vacate the secretariats, which paved the way for the party’s presidential candidate to visit the state. During the same visit, our presidential candidate’s convoy was attacked at the Bulumkutu railway crossing in the suburbs of Maiduguri as he made his way to the airport to depart the state,” the party stated.

The NNPP pleaded with the victims of the attacks and prayed for their speedy recovery, urging the Inspector General of Police and Director General of State Protection Services to provide sufficient security at political events to prevent any disturbances.
