Speaking in a statement on Monday, Aluko urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to stop dealing with the affected persons, demanding that the electoral body provide up to date records in recognition of the expelled membera and the purported new party leadership. In the statement, Aluko said:

“Once again, may we use this public space to remind the INEC, through its chairman, that we have requested the urgent need to update their records of the National Executive Committee of the NNPP. It is instructive to indicate herein that the constitution of the NNPP is supreme and binding on all members, without prejudice to the overarching Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the Electoral Act.”
