Ben Kure, Kaduna State Chairman of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), has been removed following a vote of no confidence passed on him by the State Working Committee of the NNPP at its meeting and deliberations, Njenje Media News reports.

Hosea Baba, Zone 3 Vice Chairman, moved the motion for the removal of the chairman and was seconded by the Kaduna State NNPP Organising Secretary, Alhaji Sa’ad Idris Kudan.

Also removed along with the chairman was the legal adviser of the party in the state, Ibrahim Ahmed.

Kure has since been replaced by the former Kaduna State caretaker chairman of the NNPP, Nuhu Audu.

Audu who was the interim chairman of Sanga Local Government Area of the state has been declared the authentic State chairman of the party.

Col. Albehu Dauda Gora (retd), Kaduna State Publicity Secretary of the party, in a statement, explained that shortly after the meeting, both Kure and Ahmed breached the provisions of Article 31 (1) of the NNPP Constitution and sections 82 (1) (3) (5) and 83(1) of the Electoral Act, 2022.

According to the statement: “The Kaduna State Working Committee of the NNPP held a meeting on Tuesday 6th November 2022 and after deliberation at the instance of a motion moved by Zone 3 Vice Chairman, Hon. Hosea Baba, and seconded by State Organising Secretary, Alhaji Sa’ad Idris Kudan, have unanimously passed a vote of no confidence against NNPP Kaduna State Chairman, Ben Kure and State Legal Adviser, IB Ahmed, Esquire, respectively.”

The statement further explained that the removal of the former state chairman and legal adviser from office was based on a plethora of complaints in respect of their failure to discharge their responsibilities, neglect and dereliction of duty, misconduct in office, breach of provisions of the party’s constitution, dishonesty and fraudulent activity, fictionalizing the state executive committee of the party, negligence in carrying out lawful directives of the party, sabotage, and engaging in anti-party activities and conduct which have detrimental and adverse effect capable of bringing hatred, contempt, disrespect and ridicule on the party.

When contacted through a telephone call, Ben Kure simply replied via SMS, saying, “I will call you back.” The beleaguered ex-chairman has not called back at the time of filing this report.
