South West NNPP raises alarm over alleged attempt to change party’s logo


The South West chapter of New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP, has raised an alarm over an attempt to change the party’s logo.

The zone noted that it will not allow anyone to change the party’s logo which has been in existence for 20 years.

South West Public Relations Officer of NNPP, Mr. Kilamuwaye Badmus, made these declarations in a statement made available to DAILY POST on Sunday in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

He added that the plan to change the NNPP logo is an overnight move which is not acceptable to the members of the party in the zone.

He added that the leaders and members of NNPP in the Southern Region are not in support of any attempt to change the party’s logo.

He noted that none of the members of the party from the zone was consulted before such a step was taken.

Kilamuwaye, while speaking further, called on Governor Abba Yusuff of Kano state, National Assembly members elected under NNPP to retain the victorious logo that gave them victory in the last election.

According to him: “The plan to change the logo was not officially passed to the members to seek their opinions and so it cannot stand the test of time.

“What happened to the over two decades logo of our great party, the NNPP, with a patriotic inscription of Nigerian map with a basket of fruits, which connotes food security for the masses; it is when there is no hunger, that people can think of any other things.

“We, the leaders and members of the NNPP in the Southern Region were not consulted nor informed about the planned change of the party’s logo and therefore the change is unacceptable to us and INEC should take note and reject such a kangaroo decision of changing the original NNPP Party Logo.

“We wish to state that changing of NNPP Logo is not the next line of action or method to put an end to the internal crisis rocking the party in the nation, but rather it will cause another damage to the party because the adopted Kwankwasiyya colour can’t fly and the rationale behind the idea is not acceptable to the Southwest Region of the New Nigeria People’s Party.”
