The New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP says Dr. Mubarak Musa is the authentic governorship candidate of the party in Kogi State with Tanimu Idris as running mate.

The National Publicity Secretary of NNPP, Dr. Agbo Major in a statement, said Dr. Musa won the party’s governorship primary election in Lokoja, Kogi State which was duly monitored by the officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and was issued the Party’s certificate of return.

Dr. Agbo said the national leadership of the party, the State Chapter and stakeholders in the quest for a better Kogi State are all in support of Dr Musa’s candidature and have been campaigning vigorously for him and his running mate, Tanimu Idris to win the forthcoming governorship election in the State as the party did in Kano State.

He described Dr. Musa as a man of enormous intellectual capacity, honour and integrity.

The NNPP dissociates itself from any other person claiming to be the party’s governorship candidate in the State.

“and warns the impostor to desist from his campaign of calumny forthwith or face the full weight of the law as there is no faction in our great party”

“As a grassroots political party, NNPP is strongly determined to win the Kogi State governorship poll and will not tolerate any distraction in the patriotic zeal to transform the state to a modern industrial one and deliver dividends of democracy to the long-suffering and marginalized people”, the statement reads in part.

The NNPP therefore urged the good people of Kogi to support, campaign and elect Dr. Mubarak as the next governor of the state come November 2023.
