The presidential candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso has appointed Abdulmumin Jibrin as one of his campaign spokespersons for the 2023 polls.

Jibrin, a former member of the House of Representatives, was the Director-General of the Tinubu Support Management Council, before dumping the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the NNPP.

Following his defection, he immediately withdrew his involvement with the campaign of the APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

In a statement on Thursday, Kwankwaso announced the appointment of the ex-federal lawmaker and a Lagos-based lawyer, Ladipo Johnson as the spokespersons for his campaign council.

The NNPP flagbearer said the duo were chosen because of their wealth of experience in strategic communication, their commitment to the party, and their extensive network and reach.

“Dr. Jibrin is a former ranking member of the House of Representatives with extensive experience in campaign management and public affairs,” the statement read in part.

“An astute politician and consummate mobilizer, Jibrin holds a BSc, MSc and PhD from the University of Abuja and Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria with majors in politics, diplomacy and International Affairs.

“He holds a PLD, SEP, and MBA from Harvard, London and SBS Zurich respectively. He also completed programs on negotiation, decision making, strategy and marketing from the Harvard and European Institute of Business Administration INSEAD France.

“Johnson is a Barrister in Law, Managing Partner at Agbese & Johnson (Legal Consultants) and also the president of the African Institute of Enterprise Development and Management. A renowned public affairs analyst and a former gubernatorial and House of Representative candidate in Lagos State, Barr. Johnson is a graduate of Lagos State University (LASU) and the Convener of Johnson Initiative for Positive Impact.”
