Speaking on the issue, the spokesperson of the group, Ibrahim Murtala, urged the NNPP to drop Hunkuyi's ahead of the election.

Stakeholders compiling signature for legal action against Hunkuyi

Murtala said the stakeholders of the party have commenced the compilation of signatures that would lead to an eventual legal action against the NNPP and Hunkuyi.

Noting that Hunkuyi was fielded wrong as NNPP's governorship candidate, Murtala said the party cannot afford to lose the forthcoming election for this reason.

His words:

“We have written several letters to state party executives apart from verbal complaints but we are yet to get a response.
“Therefore, we have no option than to go to court for justice, we can’t afford to sacrifice the hard work and dedication of the teeming supporters of our party because of some selfish interest."
