The New Nigerian People’s Party (NNPP) has suspended the state Chairman, Hon. Abdullahi Angulu Hukuma and the Secretary, Malam Abubakar Suleiman over alleged misappropriation of funds and non performance.
.

The action of the party was contained in a letter signed by Comrade Umar Muhammed Murtala, State Auditor on behalf Of members of the party’s executive from 14 out of 21 Local Government . A copy was made available to THEANALYSTNG on Tuesday in Lokoja.

Specifically, the executives alleged that Anugu’s activities in recent time were against the provisions of the party’s constitution , while the secretary, Sulaiman was suspended, according to the letter because he is a serving civil servant with National Space Research Development Agency (NASRDA) Abuja.

The letter reads: “This is to notify the National chairman of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) of the immediate suspension of the Kogi State chairman of the party, Honourable Abdullahi Angulu and the party state secretary Mallam Abubakar Sulieman. The Kogi State Executive Council (SEC) of the party after due consultations across the 21 local Government Areas of the state came to a logical conclusion in the overall interest of the party.

The SEC had to act swiftly and rescue the party from immediate collapse due to the non
progressive activities of the chairman and the secretary of the party. The suspension of the
state party chairman became unavoidable because of two major reasons;

(A) Gross misappropriation of party funds:The chairman of the party could not account for
all the funds coming and going out of the party. The funds released for the formation of
structure across the 21 local Government Areas of the state estimated to be 1.5 million
naira, fund released for the renting of state party secretariat 2 Million naira,state
administrative charges estimated to be 2.7 million naira,funds released during the
presidential primary estimated to be 3.3 million naira, and other funds totalling 9.5
million Naira could not be accounted for by the state chairman. He succeeded in
misappropriating the said funds because he vehemently rejected all efforts by the state
Executives to open an account in the name of the party, therefore using his personal
account for the party.

(B) Anti party activities; it is public knowledge that the Kogi state chairman of the NNPP
is negotiating with opposition parties in the state against the interest and progress of
the NNPP. It will be a great abnormality to allow an individual scuttle the efforts of the
entire Kogi NNPP that is aimed at rebirthing the Nigerian state for the benefits of everyone.

The state secretary of the party, Mallam Abubakar Sulieman is suspended because he is a
federal civil servant working with National Space Research And Development Agency (NASRDA)
Abuja, as a result of which he could not effectively perform his duties and obligations to the party thereby creating vacuum in the party.

Based on the above verifiable reasons that culminated in the suspension of the chairman and secretary, the state SEC of the NNPP inorder to maintain the smooth running of the party has
directed the organizing secretary Honourable Nuhu Isiaka as the third ranking officer of the
NNPP in the state by hierarchy to assume the position of acting state chairman. Mr Shittu is
also directed to serve as the acting secretary of the party until normalcy is restored.

The Suspended chairman and secretary are by this notice directed to in the next 48 hours hand
over all party materials in their possession to the acting chairman and secretary respectively.
Attached are the signatories to the suspension of the state chairman and secretary respectively” the statement concluded.

Best regards,
