The National Working Committee, NWC, of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, (NNPP), has announced the suspension of two of its members.
The two suspended members are one of the founders of the party, Boniface Aniebonam and the National Publicity Secretary, Agbo Major.
In a statement signed by the party’s acting National Chairman, Abba Kawu Alli, the party said the suspension was with immediate effect pending the outcome of investigations by the disciplinary committee of the party.
Alli in a statement made available to newsmen said that the duo of Aniebonam and Agbo were suspended for alleged anti-party activities.
He added that NNPP shall stand up to those who would like to bring it to disrepute.
“Unfortunately, Boniface Aniebonam, one of the founders of our party, has arrogated to himself the right to solely reverse decisions of the National Working Committee, even those decisions ratified and adopted by the National Executive Committee of the party. This is a situation that, as a responsible National Working Committee, we cannot permit to persist.
“In line with our constitution, we have today suspended Boniface Okechukwu Aniebonam and the National Publicity Secretary, Agbo Major, pending the determination of investigations by the disciplinary committee at the national level of the party.
“Furthermore, the men and their suspended cohorts have, under Article 391 (7), been involved in anti-party activities and conduct which may likely have an adverse effect on the party or bring hatred, contempt, disrespect or ridicule to the party,” he claimed.
