The New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) has announced Mubarak Saliu Musa as its candidate for governor of Kogi State, with Tanimu Idris serving as his running mate. In a recent statement, the National Publicity Secretary of the NNPP, Agbo Major, claimed that Musa had won the party’s governorship primary election in Lokoja, Kogi State, which had been duly observed by officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). He also claimed that he had been given the NNPP certificate of return. In order to create a better Kogi State, he claims that the party’s leadership is in favor of Dr. Musa’s candidacy and has been working to elect him and his running mate, Idris. “A man of enormous intellectual capacity, honour, and integrity, Dr Mubarak Saliu Musa is the most credible and competent candidate for governor of Kogi State. “NNPP dissociates itself from any other person claiming to be the party’s governorship candidate in the state and warns the impostor to desist from his campaign of calumny forthwith or face the full weight of the law as there is no faction in our great party. “As a grassroots political party, the NNPP is strongly determined to win the Kogi State governorship poll and will not tolerate any distraction in its patriotic zeal to transform the state into a modern industrial one and deliver dividends of democracy to the long-suffering and marginalized people. “NNPP, therefore, urges the good people of Kogi to vigorously support, campaign for, and elect Dr. Mubarak as the next governor of Kogi State come November 2023,” he added.
