NNPP founder revokes purported expulsion of Oginni, sends reconfirmation letter to Ogun CP, DSS, INEC

The Founder and Chairman of The Board of Trustees of New Nigeria People’s Party, Dr. Boniface Aniebonam has written to the Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alamutu, The State Director of DSS and Independent Electoral Commission to reaffirm Comrade Sunday Olaposi Oginni as the authentic chairman of the party in the state. 

Aniebonam, in the letter titled: 

“Reconfirmation of Comrade Oginni Olaposi Sunday as the Ogun State Chairman of NNPP”, insisted that the purported expulsion of Oginni by the party’s National Working Committee is null and void. 


The NNPP founder explained that the expulsion was inconsistent with the constitution of the party’s procedures of expulsion.

He maintained that the NWC was not the right organ of the party that could take such action. 

While reiterating that Oginni remains the only recognised and authentic chairman of the party in the state, Aniebonam urged members of NNPP to embrace and accept the decision of the party. 

The letter reads in part, “I write in my capacity as the Founder and Chairman of The Board of Trustees of NEW NIGERIA PEOPLE’S PARTY (NNPP) to Confirm to you that Comrade Oginni Olaposi Sunday remains the recognized and authentic Chairman in Ogun State.

“My attention was drawn to the Purported Expulsion of the Chairman of Ogun NNPP and The Federal High Court ruling that returned the matter back to the party as” a family matter”

“Firstly, the Purported Expulsion was null and void due to it’s inconsistency with the Constitution of NNPP procedures of Expulsion! Article 8.3(d) clearly stated that Only the Convention or NEC shall have Power to Expel a member from the Party.

“The Purported Expulsion of our Chairman in Ogun State in person of Comrade Oginni Olaposi Sunday was null and void because the NWC was not the right organ of the party that could take such action.

“Recognizing that this Action of NWC was inconsistent with the provisions of NNPP’s Constitution shall to the extent of such inconsistency be null and void.

“In the same Vein, the Judgement of Federal High Court of Abeokuta refers explicitly that the matter was “a family matter” by the Provision of Article 12.3.1(a).

“I am The Founder of the Party and the Life Member of the Board and The Chairman of Board of Trustees. Consequently, the Constitution in Article 12.3 .4(a) and (f) empowered me as the CONSCIENCE of the Party to “Call to Order” any Officer of the Party which conducts fall below the norms and to mediate in disputes. 

“Therefore, as The Father of NNPP family, I’m reiterating that Comrade Oginni Olaposi Sunday remains the Authentic Chairman of NNPP in Ogun State and hereby direct all NNPP family in Ogun State to embrace peace and cooperate with the State Chairman. 

“Hence, the case of impersonation against Comrade Oginni Olaposi Sunday is a ruse and should be discountenance in entirety.

“Having instances of braking, stealing and malicious damage still pending and hanging on some accused at the state magistrate Court, I am also using this opportunity to request for the continued protection of lives and properties of NNPP in Ogun State. 

“It is my hope that they all shall realise that they are brothers and sisters from Ogun State to show love among each other and live in peace. 

“I did invite them to Lagos annex office of the party to resolve their alleged transactional issues but the complainants refused. I am ever ready to receiving all of them to resolve this matter amicably.”
