The presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Rabiu Kwankwaso, has appointed Abdulmumin Jibrin and Ladipo Johnson as the spokespersons of his campaign.
The appointment of the duo was announced late Wednesday through Kwankwaso’s Twitter handle.
In his post, the former governor of Kano State said he approved the appointment of Jibrin and Johnson due to their experience in communication and network to deliver the objectives of the party across the country.
“I have approved the appointment of Hon Abdulmumin Jibrin and Barr. Ladipo Johnson as spokespersons for my campaign council.
“I have no doubt that the duo will use their wealth of experience in communications and vast networks to deliver on our mandate for a New Nigeria,” he said.
Hon. Jibrin is a former member of the House of Representatives. He defected to the NNPP in May after falling out with the Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State.
His defection from the ruling party was a shock to many owing to his allegiance to the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.
Mr Johnson, on the other hand, is a lawyer and Managing Partner at Agbese & Johnson (Legal Consultants). He is also the president of the African Institute of Enterprise Development and Management.
