The New Nigeria People’s Party, NNPP, has expelled two of its state Chairmen over alleged anti party activities in the just concluded General election.

They are Chief Efe Tobor, from Delta State and his Ogun state counterpart, Comrade Olaposi Sunday Ogini.

The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Dr. Agbo Major who made this known while briefing newsmen in Abuja, explained that both chairmen and their executives apart from engaging in very visible anti-party activities were also accused of other wrongdoings which negates their oath of office.

“It is very disheartening that some members of our party engaged in anti-party activities by aligning openly with other parties in the last election, you will agree with me that no party worth its salt will condone such misdemeanor” he stressed.

According to him, the men worked against the party’s interest and endorsed other party candidates in their states.

Dr. Major explained that the National working Committee, NCW, of the party had set up a disciplinary Committee to investigate the involvement of three states which include Edo, Ogun and Delta states, while Edo State Chairman appeared before the committee others declined the invitation.

“Consequently, the NWC met and resolved that both state Chairmen be expelled from the party, the Executives from the states, the Local Government and ward levels in both States be dissolved also with effect from Thursday, April 27, 2023 adding that the expulsion of both Chief Efe Tobor and Comrade Sunday Olaposi Ogini will be taken to the National Executive Committee (NEC) and the National Convention for ratification” he said.

On the off-season elections, the NNPP image maker urged the Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC) to provide a level playing field for all the political parties and ensure that every vote counts.

Dr. Major who said insecurity has been the bane of the nation’s development, urged security agents to discharge their constitutional duties effectively.
