The New Nigeria Peoples Party has dismissed allegations of plot by the party and the Kwankwasiya Movement to occupy the Supreme Court and foreign missions in Nigeria.

The party described the allegation as a figment of the imagination of a conceived coalition of some civil society organisations.

The party’s acting National Chairman, Abba Ali, in a statement on Friday, said, “The allegations by the so-called coalition is laughable and show the extent the opposition in Kano State will go to fabricate lies in its desperation to seize power by all means.

“The All Progressives Congress knows that it has no case at the Supreme Court and has allegedly resorted to blackmail, Intimidation, and falsehood to hoodwink unsuspecting members of the public, the judiciary, and security agencies to take the mandate the good people of Kano State freely gave to the NNPP.”

The chairman further revealed that the party has confidence in the nation’s judiciary as the temple of justice and bastion of hope for aggrieved citizens.

He said that as a law-abiding political party, it is resolute and strongly determined to protect and defend its mandate across the country and will resist any attempt to subvert the will of the people.

“The ballot is sacrosanct, the mandate of the people is not negotiable and not for sale,” he added.

In another development, the party said that it was not in coalition with any political party.

Speaking in a separate statement signed by the chairman on Friday, the party said, “The attention of the leadership of the party has been drawn to reports of the formation of a coalition by the party and some political parties and wishes to state that there is nothing of such.”
