The presidential candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP), Malik Ado-Ibrahim has been summoned by the party over plans for the 2023 election.
According to the party, members are not satisfied with the preparations in place by the presidential candidate for the 2023 general elections.
A statement on Sunday by the YPP National Secretary, Egbeola Wale-Martins said the decision to summon Ado-Ibrahim was taken after the party’s 20th national working committee (NWC) meeting in Abuja.
He added that the gap in communication between the presidential candidate, the party leadership and its organs seem to have slowed down preparations for next year’s elections and hampered the expected fortunes of the YPP.
The National Secretary also stated that the outcome of the briefing from the presidential candidate would determine the next line of action to be taken by the party.
The statement reads: “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.
“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.”
Wale-Martins however called on supporters of the YPP across all levels to remain committed to the party and continue to give all necessary support.
