The former Chairman of the Forum of local government chairmen of the New Nigerian People’s Party (NNPP) Salisu Ibrahim Dauran has raised alarm that their exit to the APC is further draining the NNPP in Zamfara since two more other chairmen with lots of other powerful supporters of the party are defecting out of the party.
Dauran who stated this during an interview with the Thunder Blowers on Saturday insisted that NNPP cannot win a single poling unit in Zamfara because the leaders of the party, as well as the aspirants, do not mean well for the party since the leaders of the party both at the national and state level are not ready to offer the most desirable leadership the party required in the state.
On why, they refused to use the opportunity of the Kwankwaso’s visit to address the problem affecting the party in the state he replied, “Kwankwaso is not after NNPP and from his utterances during the town hall meeting he had with all stakeholders at Conference hall of Karma Hotel in Gusau, we have become crippled politically because he hurriedly responds to some issues and left for his hotel room pretending that he has more commitments in Katsina the next day”.
“We have noticed that despite the challenges faced by the APC in the state we thought meeting Kwankwaso in person will be an option in resolving the party problems but in all honesty, the manners demonstrated by the Presidential candidate of the NNPP clearly demonstrated the simple facts that Kwankwaso does not mean well for the party”.
He explained that, after their defection, two out of the four remaining chairmen of NNPP had sealed the deal to join the APC noting that, soonest, they will empty the party and strengthen the APC more.
“We have already sealed a deal with the two additional Chairmen of the NNPP who are ready to join the APC saying soonest they would be presented to the Governor for formal reception.
He assured that they would work tirelessly to support the victory of the APC across all levels, noting that their union with the Matawalle in the APC will raise the flag of the party high.
