2023: NNPP Accuses APC of Plot to Disenfranchise Kano Voters
POLITICS DIGEST- The New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP, in Kano State has accused the All Progressives Congress, APC, of planning to disenfranchise holders of Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) in the state by buying the cards from them.
The NNPP said this in a workshop organised for it’s candidates at the weekend.
According to the statement signed by the workshop chairman, Honorable Garba Diso, and secretary, Dr. Hamisu Sadi Ali, the workshop, in seeking quick solutions to the threat of disenfranchisement, called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to as a matter of urgency publish the names of all uncollected PVCs in order to create awareness for the rightful owners to claim them.
Among other issues highlighted by the workshop were the alleged ‘destruction of the educational system’ following the Closure and de-boarding of unity schools; non-payment of all examination fees by the state government to WAEC, NECO, and NBAIS; delay and non-payment of scholarship allowances to foreign and local students; and the creation of non-educationally friendly environment within school premises through the construction of corner shops in schools like Northwest University, Kano.
Furthermore, the workshop emphasised that Kano State is now one of the leading states in drug abuse and thuggery under the watch of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje and his administration, adding that the Kiru Rehabilitation Centre which was established by the Rabiu Kwankwaso administration for drug abuse has since been closed by the Ganduje administration.
The NNPP also accused the state government of supporting illegal activities like land grabbing and supervising poor city/urban planning as well as turning governance into a family affair.
The workshop concluded that NNPP must come on board at state at national levels during next year’s elections to be able to right the wrongs of the APC.
