Hajia Abibata Shanni, NPP parliamentary aspirant for the Yendi constituency, has petitioned the party’s National Executive Council (NEC) to order fresh elections.

The CEO of MASLOC has also called on the National Executive Council, the highest body of the NPP, to declare the elections “null and void.”
