Kano state - The House of Representatives member representing Kiru and Bebeji Federal Constituency, Abdulmumin Jibrin, has reacted to the alleged coalition with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Jubrin said the NNPP is not in talks with the PDP or any political party at the moment.
In a statement issued via his X page (formerly known as Twitter) @AbdulAbmJ, he described the report of forming a coalition with PDP as a blatant lie and an act of mischief makers that should be regarded.
The NNPP lawmaker, however, said the party is open to work with the ruing All Progressives Congress (APC) the PDP, Labour Party and any other political party in the country.
“Our attention has been drawn to a widely circulated message on some sections of the media that our great party, NNPP is in talks with the PDP and other parties for possible coalition.
“There is no any element of truth in this. It’s a blatant lie. Our party has consistently maintained a neutral stand that we are open to collaboration, alliance and even merger with the APC, PDP, LP and any other political party.
“There is presently no any talk whatsoever ongoing and the party did not attend any meeting to discuss coalition or merger with PDP or any other party. It is an act of mischief makers and should be regarded as such
