The New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) has written to INEC, intimating the commission of alleged plans by some groups to change the party’s logo.
The party has also written to Sen. Rabiu Kwankwaso, its 2023 presidential candidate, to end the MoU it entered with the Kwankwasiyya group for the 2023 general elections.
The letters written to INEC and Kwankwaso were signed by Mr Peter Ogah, the party’s Solicitor and made available to newsmen on Wednesday in Lagos.
The letter to INEC is with the title: “Unauthorized and fraudulent plans to change the NNPP logo and amend the party’s constitution.”
Daily News 24 recalls that a faction of the party on Sept. 5, under the leadership of Major Agbo expelled its presidential candidate, Kwankwaso, over his alleged anti-party activities and misappropriation of party campaign funds.
Ogah informed INEC in the letter that its client had informed the firm of a news item that some individuals were taking steps to change the party’s logo and amend its constitution.
“We act as solicitors to the New Nigeria Peoples Party, represented by Dr Boniface Okechukwu Aniebonam, the Founder and Dr Temitope Aluko, the Chairman. Board of Trustees and we write upon their instruction.
“Our client, however, informed us that while the board is preparing for the said meeting. their attention was drawn to a news item in the media.
‘Our client informed us that some individuals are taking steps to change the NNPP’s logo, and to also amend the party’s Constitution, hence the need to place this caveat immediately.
“The commission is hereby formally notified of the unauthorised and fraudulent plans by some individuals to change the NNPP logo and amend its constitution.
