2023: Top NNPP Chieftains Dump Kwankwaso, Back Tinubu

The All Progressive Congress (APC) presidential candidate Bola Tinubu and his running mate, Kashim Shettima, have been declared the preferred presidential candidates, and the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) Osun chapter has lost two senatorial candidates and two House of Representatives candidates as a result.

The candidates that endorsed Tinubu include Kola Bamgbola for the Osun Central Senate seat, Mayowa Akinyode for the Osun West Senate seat, Elijah Fabayo for the Boluwaduro/Ifedayo/Ila Federal Constituency, and Babatunde Ajayi for the Ijesa South Federal Constituency.

Osun Central candidate, Bamgbola, said the decision to support the APC presidential candidate stems from dissatisfaction with the NNPP leadership at the national level and the inability of the party stakeholders to work in accordance with justice and democratic running of the party. Bamgbola was speaking on behalf of other candidates who were physically present at NUJ press center, Osogbo on Wednesday.

Bamgbola claimed that the NNPP leadership was acting out of self-interest rather than for the good of the party. He added that the incompetence of the National Secretary, Mr. Dipo Olayoku, the South West Zonal Secretary, Mr. Tunde Oke, and other inexperienced individuals would jeopardize our vision for a new Nigeria.


According to him, “We, candidates for Osun Central Senatorial District, Osun West Senatorial District and two House of Representatives candidates and one other House of Assembly, we wish to announce and declare our support and endorsement for the All Progressives Congress Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the coming election.

“This is as a result of our dissatisfaction with the leadership of the party at the national level coupled with the inability of the party stakeholders to work in accordance with the principle of justice, disobedient of the rule of law, and undemocratic running of the party..

“On desire to enjoy good governance and dividends of democracy which can be realized under a new Nigeria, can only be found in the APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
