The National Chairman of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Professor Rufa’i Ahmed Alkali, has given reasons why he resigned as the head of the party.
Alkali, in a letter dated March 31, 2023, said he stepped aside to allow new hands to take over the party and consolidate on the achievements recorded in the last general elections.
Alkali, in the letter, copied the National Leader of the party and presidential candidate, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso; Chairman, Board of Trustees of NNPP, Elder Chief Boniface Aniebonam; and Secretary, Board of Trustees of NNPP, Engr Buba Galadima, stressed that the interest of the party superseded personal interest, hence his decision to step aside.
He said, “As I stated in the letter, we have done our best. We have fulfilled our objectives of contributing to the growth of democracy. And I’m sure the party will move forward.
“The party needs to go through a lot of reorganization, and the best way is to lead and live by example. I really need to lead by example. We have made sacrifices and we have to make decisions that will take the party forward.”
