The former governor of Kano state Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso has reportedly declined to be part of the Government of National Unity proposed by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
It was reported the former governor party, tNew Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) has revealed reasons for its decision to step aside which also includes involving politicians with corruption cases as well as the government’s “anti-people policies.”
According to a source, the party stated that it has “carefully reviewed the situation on ground with regards to our relationship with the Bola Ahmed Tinubu-led government and we have decided not to be part of it.”
The source also stressed that the party has “been observing all the programmes, actions and policies of this government since it came on board, and we have decided that they (the actions) are clearly anti-people and are at odds with the philosophy and aspirational goals of our party.”
“We have continued to see people with allegations of corruption and corrupt practices trailing them being made to play an important role in government,” the source said. “This runs contrary to the ethos and philosophy of our party which is made up of decent and responsible members of the public who are public spirited and development oriented.”
