2023: YPP summons presidential candidate over ‘slow campaign’ %Post Title


Malik Ado-Ibrahim, presidential candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP), has been summoned by the party over the “slow build-up” of his activities for the 2023 elections.

Egbeola Wale-Martins, YPP national secretary, disclosed this on Sunday in a statement issued at the end of the party’s 20th national working committee (NWC) meeting in Abuja.

Ado-Ibrahim became the party’s flag bearer in June 2022 after defeating Ruby Isaac.

In the statement, Wale-Martins said the party was displeased at the slow build-up of political activities due to gaps in communication between the presidential candidate and the appropriate organs of the party.

According to NAN, he said the NWC has acknowledged the concerns of its members, supporters, and other critical stakeholders on the poor visibility of the party and its presidential candidate.

“Having done so much hitherto to build a political capital that should have made YPP the third force, the NWC therefore has directed the national secretary to summon the presidential candidate, Prince Malik Ado-Ibrahim, through official communication within 7-working days,” the statement reads.

“He is to appear and address several issues, including but not limited to his blueprint and a comprehensive campaign plan going into the 2023 presidential election, for the purpose of speedy harmonisation to avoid working at cross purposes.

“It was also unanimously agreed that the outcome of the proposed engagement would help the NWC to either embrace available strategies aimed at covering lost grounds or take difficult informed steps in the interest of the party, our members, and all Nigerians.”

The national secretary further said the NWC ratified the expulsion of Matthew Namo, the suspended Nasarawa state chairman of the party, for allegedly going incommunicado.

He added that in pursuit of justice, the NWC further mandated the legal directorate to give necessary support to all aggrieved members.

He also urged candidates running for various positions on the YPP platform to work in synergy with the party leadership across state, local government, and ward levels.
