The New Nigeria People's Party (NNPP) has explained why the party may not participate in the forthcoming local government election slated for October 2020 in Bauchi state, saying that it has lost confidence that there will be justice and threatened to boycott the election.
The Caretaker chairman of the party in the state Alhaji Yusuf Musa Gumli made this known in an interview with newsmen in Bauchi.
He alleged that the state commissioner for local government has already pre-empted that the ruling party will not allow any opposition party to win a seat in the October polls.
"I don't think we are going to participate in that election because the party in power made us to believe that there won't be fairness. We know that PDP lost in all the states that are not governed by their party. Definitely, that is what they are going to do for us. So, it is like he is already pre-empting the outcome of the election and that is why we should not delve into what we know certainly is planned?" He said
Gumli said that the caretaker executives include himself as Chairman, Baba Abubakar Misau, secretary, Barrister A. U Ganaru public relations officer, Abdullahi yahya, youth leader and Hadiza Abubakar Mustapha women leader will conduct election of new leaders within three months.
The NNPP won only one house of assembly seat in the state in the 2019 election. NNL.
