By-election: NNPP has no capacity to win in Lagos for now – Founder


The Founder of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) Dr Boniface Aniebonam, says the party do not have capacity to win election in Lagos State at the moment.

Aniebonam disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) while reacting on party’s chances in the forthcoming by-election in Surulere I Federal Constituency.

“For now, Lagos state election is a very serious election. For me, I don’t think that we have the capacity to win election in Lagos state for now.

“Maybe in the future, we will try to see what we can do to win election in Lagos state, “Aniebonam said.

Recall that INEC had said that 12 candidates of different political parties would be contesting in the Feb. 3 by-election, excluding the NNPP.

The seat became vacant due to the resignation of the former occupant, Rep. Femi Gbajabiamila, who after winning, was appointed by President Bola Tinubu as his Chief of Staff.

But on the prayers organised by his party ahead of the Supreme Court’s ruling on the Taraba governorship election, Aniebonam said the prayer session was to seek God’s intervention in the NNPP and its governorship candidate, Prof. Sani Yahaya’s appeal.

He said the prayers was to also thank God for the party’s Kano state victory at the Supreme Court. (NAN)
