    NNPP Gov’ship candidate in Ogun, withdraw from the race

    Published By:

    The New Nigeria peoples Party (NNPP), governorship candidate in Ogun State, Dr. Jackie Kassim has withdrawn her gubernatorial ambition.

    A Source who confirmed the development, noted that her stepping down may not be unconnected with some political realignment currently going within the party nationwide to enable NNPP to win elections in all the states where it fields candidates.

    Dr. Jackie, however, denied the statement credited to the Ogun State Chairman of the party, Sunday Oginni that she was disqualified for emerging as a factional candidate.

    She said, “I am the only qualified governorship candidate on the platform of NNPP that obtained the nomination form as well as paid all stipulated dues. All other so-aclaimed candidates were mere dummy aspirants, who never meet up with criteria set down that would have enabled them qualified for the contest.

    “But because of some clandestine moves by some personalities, which I considered would be inimical to the overall progress of the party and have the tendencies of affecting the fortunes of the party in the forthcoming general elections, I consider it exigent and in the spirit of sportsmanship, to sacrifice my guber ambition in the interest of the party, particularly when the purpose of the contest is to serve humanity in my state and in Nigeria as a whole.” She said.
