The NNPP has also resolved to provide the needed opposition to the All Progressives Congress (APC). NaijNews reports.

A source within the party disclosed that the NNPP 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 said 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.”

Additionally, according to the source, the NNPP has also expressed concern about the involvement of personalities with corruption allegations in the government.

“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.”

Prior to the release of ministerial nominees by Tinubu, there were reports that he planned to bring the opposition party into the fold to form a rumoured government of national unity.

Wike vs Fubara: You are disrespecting Tinubu—APC Chairman blasts Rivers governor

The Rivers State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has accused Governor Sim Fubara of disrespecting President Bola Tinubu amid his rift with the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike.

The APC Caretaker Committee Chairman in the state, Tony Okocha, said Fubara has not fulfilled all the proclamations made by Tinubu at the peace deal with Wike.

He spoke at the party’s secretariat in Port Harcourt while addressing defectors joining the party.

Okocha said: “It will amount to barefaced disobedience for Gov. Siminalayi not to follow all eight indices in the proclamation made by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in response to the Rivers State political crisis.

“His continued refusal to present the Rivers State 2024 budget to a properly constituted Rivers State House of Assembly under Rt Hon Martin Amaewhule (Speaker), as captured in index 6.

“The flagrant cold feet in the conduct of local government elections (see index 8) are signs of disrespect for the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“The APC Rivers (which is Mr. President‘s Party) stoutly condemns this act of disobedience perpetrated by Gov. Fubara and warns against the likely concomitant fallouts.”
