NNPP Southwest Frown Against Change of Party’s Logo


The South West chapter of the New Nigeria People’s Party, (NNPP) has rejected the new logo adopted by the party, saying the question bordering NNPP members, stakeholders and other party faithful in the country and in the Diaspora is why changing the logo the party has adorned for over 20 years.

In a release by the South West chapter of the NNPP on Sunday and signed by its Public Relations Officer, Mr. Kilamuwaye Badmus, the party insists that the plan to change the NNPP’s logo was an overnight move which is not acceptable to the members of the party in the South West.

“The plan to change the logo was not officially passed to the members to seek their opinions and so it cannot stand the test of time”, S/W NNPP said.


The party therefore called on Governor Abba Yusuff, National Assembly members elected under NNPP to retain the victorious logo that gave them victory in the last election.

“What happened to over two decades logo of our great party, the NNPP, with a patriotic inscription of Nigeria map with basket of fruits, which connotes food security for the masses, it is when there is no hunger, that people can think of any other things.

“And why the changing so sudden to Kwankwassiya colour of red white red without exercising the party’s internal mechanism?

“Enough of this political contractors that believe in party’s trading and ideology of self imposition.

“The exclusive urgency of NEC meeting and National mini convention of our great party shows that the Kwankwasiyya
group led by Dr. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso is working to hijack the party structure by announcing the trade mark of Kwankwasiyya colour to finally commercialize and to have full control of the party structure in the country”, Kilamuwaye said in the release.

The South West NNPP also queried the quick notification of the New logo by the National Leader Dr. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, Working Committee, (NWC) without seeking the opinions of the teeming members of the party across the country.

“We the leaders and members of the NNPP in the Southern Region were not consulted nor informed about the planned change of the party’s logo and therefore the change is unacceptable to us and INEC should take note and reject such kangaroo decision of changing original NNPP Party Logo.

“We wish to state that changing of NNPP Logo is not the next line of action or method to put an end to the internal crisis rocking the party in the nation, but rather it will cause another damage to the party because the adopted Kwankwassia colour can’t fly and the rational behind the idea is not acceptable to the Southwest Region Of the New Nigeria People’s Party.

“Dr. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso is not the only leader of the New Nigeria People’s Party, we have other formidable leaders across the country, we are not in the party to worship a single soul but rather to bring the party to a more reputable limelight collectively.

“NNPP is a national party in Nigeria though those elected as Governor, State House Of Assembly and the National Assembly members presently are from Kano State but it is not a yardstick or enough to take over the control of the party by the Kwankwasiyya Movement.

“Politics is not a one man show. Kwankwaso is just only one of the leaders in the party. We have a lot of leaders and vibrant stakeholders in the party that the national working committee failed to carried along im its action to change the party’s logo.

“We urge our only elected governor, Engr. Abba Yusuff to not to be ungrateful to God, the party members across the nation especially the Logo that gave him victory in the last election to be retained and maintained

“In the last general election the party dragged and condemn INEC for not putting NNPP in the Logo on the ballot paper. So therefore, We called on INEC this time not to accept any new logo of NNPP from the National Secretariat yet to pass through proper adjudication. The party logo remain the map of Nigeria, with basket of fruits and not a red and white with graduation cap”.
