GNU: ANPP warns FG


National Secretary of the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP), Senator Saidu Kumo, has warned that his party would withdraw from the Government of National Unity (GNU) if the Federal Government does not remain focused and committed to the cause of the masses.

National Secretary of the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP), Senator Saidu Kumo, has warned that his party would withdraw from the Government of National Unity (GNU) if the Federal Government does not remain focused and committed to the cause of the masses.

Senator Kumo told journalists in an interview in Damaturu that the ANPP decided to participate in the GNU because of the commitment so far shown by President Umaru Yar’Adua to establish purposeful leadership for the progress and unity of the country.

He said the day the president begins to fumble, the ANPP would be the first to stand up against him noting that the ANPP desires peace and unity of the country more than anything, and that it was the reason for their support to the federal government.

He explained that the party has begun to strategize its structures for triumph in future elections adding that it would also continue to criticize bad policies and programmes for good governance and delivery of the dividends of democracy.

Nonetheless, Daily Sun interacted with many during the meeting of the party’s National Executive Council (NEC) held recently in Damaturu that suggested that the key officers of the national leadership of the party were in strong alliance with the conclave in PDP and could have been planted in the party for interest other than the party’s.

The party’s NEC at the end of its meeting issued a 7-point communique. The communique noted that the NEC passed a vote of confidence on the leadership of the party and also supports the continued participation of ANPP in the GNU; but it condemned the rerun of the gubernatorial election in Kogi blaming it on INEC.
