From Ahmad Mohammed, Bauchi
The New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) has threatened to boycott the forthcoming Bauchi State 20 local governments elections slated for 17th October 2020 in the state.
Caretaker chairman of the party in the state Alhaji Yusuf Musa Gumli stated this on Sunday in Bauchi while speaking with newsmen.
He said the party has lost confidence that justice will be done in the elections.
He alleged that the state commissioner for local governments has already pre-empted that the ruling party will not allow any opposition party to win even a seat in the October polls.
“I don’t think we are going to participate in that election because the party in power made us believe that there won’t be fairness.”
