As the 2023 general elections approaches, Senator Suleiman Othman Hunkuyi, former Political Adviser to Governor Nasir Ahmed el-Rufai, Ben Kure and other aggrieved members of the ruling All Progressives’ Congress (APC) in Kaduna State have decamped to the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).

Speaking at the formal unveiling ceremony of the new party and inauguration of the Interim Leadership of the Kaduna State Chapter, Senator Hunkuyi, who is also the interim Deputy National Chairman of NNPP, said the party was out for a political rebirth to rescue Nigeria from bad governance.

According to the former Commissioner of Finance, he and other like minds joined NNPP in order to promote internal party democracy, adding that the party has already put machinery on ground to conduct Ward Congresses and National Convention by March 28, 2022.

On his part, Ben Kure, who is also a two-time former Director-General of Governor Nasir el-Rufai Campaign Organization, having apologized to the people of Kaduna state for failure to fulfill their campaign promises, said he has moved from a party where a few select and anoint party leadership, to a party of progress.

Also speaking, former House of Representative member representing Soba Federal Constituency, Barrister Mohammed Musa Soba, said with the emergence of NNPP, politics in Kaduna and Nigeria at large will witness a new revival for fair participation, and good governance for a better and secured Nigeria.

It could be recalled that former Kano State Governor, Engineer Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, Convener of The National Movement, TNM, had last week led The Third Force to merge with NNPP in preparation to run for the 2023 presidential election, while Senator Hunkuyi is expected to contest for the Kaduna State Governorship on the platform of the NNPP.
