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, Dr Boniface Aniebonam and the National Publicity Secretary, Dr Agbo Major.
The party said the duo of Aniebonam and Major have been suspended pending the determination of investigations by a disciplinary committee.
Acting National Chairman of the party, Mallam Abba Kawu Alli made this declaration on Thursday.
Alli in a statement made available to DAILY POST 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, Dr Boniface Aniebonam, one of the founders of our party has arrogated to himself the right to solely reverse decisions of the National Working Committee, when those decisions are ratified and adopted by the National Executive Committee (NEC) 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 Dr Boniface Okechukwu Aniebonam and the National Publicity Secretary, Dr. 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.
