Few weeks after the supplementary election in Kano State, the Coalition of United Political Parties has dissociated itself from the state chapter of the coalition which endorsed the reelection of the state Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje.
The coalition which was led by one Isah Nuhu Isah, during their visit to the state Governor claimed that 42 parties planning to challenge his victory during the rerun have dropped their plan.
The spokesperson of CUPP, Imo Ugochinyere while in a statement on Thursday said;
“We make bold to say that the CUPP is a national coalition formed to work for the emergence of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, and the protection of national interest.”
“The coalition is not meant for any state jamboree as being witnessed in Kano.”
“For the avoidance of any doubt, the position of the CUPP remains that Ganduje is parading a stolen mandate that will be retrieved from him.”
“The recruitment of APC agents from Ganduje Village to come under the name of CUPP to support the stolen mandate He is parading is laughable and a show of the political inexperience of Ganduje which led to his disgraceful outing at the ballot in the first place.”
“The coalition therefore has not, and will never endorse him because we will not be part of the illegality that foisted him on the people of Kano State who roundly rejected him as seen during the election.”
