Ogun NNPP Supports Kwankwaso and Tinubu’s Political Connection, Sees No Issue Following the February 25 presidential poll, where Kwankwaso placed fourth, and Tinubu emerged as the winner, the Ogun State chapter of the NNPP defends their relationship. Instead of pursuing a legal challenge like other candidates, Kwankwaso has been engaging with Tinubu and even hinted at potential government involvement.
Ogun NNPP Chairman emphasizes that Kwankwaso’s association with Tinubu is not a violation, and the party’s withdrawal of its petition against Governor Dapo Abiodun’s electoral victory should not be seen as an act against the party.
Oginni clarifies that after elections, political parties typically come together to find a way forward, and Kwankwaso’s actions align with this spirit. Ogun NNPP withdraws the petition in alignment with Kwankwaso’s post-election approach, calling on him to address certain party members, and prevent an appeal against the tribunal’s dismissal of the case.
Oginni said, “I want to use this opportunity to call on Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso to call on these people in Ogun State that are working in contrast to his belief and what he’s doing with Asiwaju (Tinubu).
“We have withdrawn our petition against Abiodun’s victory before the tribunal, but when Senator Kwankwaso is going to Paris to meet Tinubu, going to the Villa, some people in the National Working Committee of the party are struggling that withdrawal of petition from the tribunal should not stand.
“I say this is going to become a double jeopardy for these people working in contrast with the leadership of the party, especially Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso.”
