As a disciplinary effort, 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 party’s founders, 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 the Disciplinary Committee.
Acting National Chairman of the party, Mallam Abba Kawu Alli, made these declarations on Thursday.
Alli said that the duo of Aniebonam and Agbo were suspended for anti-party activities.
He added that the party is one.
While speaking, Alli added that NNPP should stand up to those who would like to bring it to shame.
“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! As a responsible National Working Committee, we cannot permit this situation 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 harm the party or bring hatred, contempt, disrespect or ridicule to the party”.
