Any attempt to change NNPP logo without our consent is illegal – South West zone


The New Nigeria People’s Party, (NNPP), South West Zone has declared that any attempt to change the logo of the party without the consent of the members from the zone is illegal.

The zone noted that the electorate do not have problem with the party’s logo during the 2023 general elections.

Public Relations Officer of the zone, Hon Kilamuwaye Badmus made these declarations via a statement on Tuesday in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital.

It was gathered that NNPP in a mini convention last Saturday, changed the party’s logo and slogan.

NNPP National Secretary, Mr Dipo Olayokun, while speaking said the change of the logo was as a result of complaints from members during the last general elections that the logo was not visible enough.

But, Badmus while reacting, noted that any move to change the party’s logo without the consent of the members from the zone is illegal.

He said it is the same logo that Olayokun claimed was not comprehensive by voters that gave the party the Governorship seat and majority of members of national and state assemblies in Kano state.

He described the mini convention as illegal.

“They have their own plan and the plan is to turn NNPP into Kwankwasiyya Movement. Nothing is wrong with our logo. The logo was used in Kano and we won the Governorship election, the national assembly election and won the majority in the state assembly election.

“Our complaint was that in many states like Ogun State for instance, INEC deliberately omitted our logo on the ballot papers and this caused us the Governorship election which ordinarily we would have won with wide margins.

“The question we need to ask the organiser of the mini convention is why the hurry. Why jettisoning a court order. To us in the South West NNPP, the mini convention is illegal and we are not part of the changing of the party’s logo.

“You can’t change a party’s logo without carrying all members along. We stand by our position, that the new logo is not valid and is illegal. All the efforts put up by Olayokun in defending the illegal action cannot stand.”
