Less than 40 days to presidential election, Tinubu’s Campaign Director dumps APC
Vondigest reports that Naja’atu Muhammad, a director in the presidential campaign team of Bola Tinubu has resigned.
Naja’atu Mohammad dumped the ruling party and consequently resigned as director of the council, weith less that 40 days to the 2023 election. She is the Director of the Civil Society directorate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council (PCC).
This online platform reports that in a letter dated January 19, 2023 and addressed to the national Chairman of the APC, Abdullahi Adamu, Mrs Mohammed said the challenges Nigeria faces require her to continue championing the struggle for a better country with a clear conscience.
“I am writing to you to intimate you of my resignation from the All Progressive Congress (APC).
“I am by this letter also informing you of my resignation as the Director of the Civil Society directorate of the Presidential Campaign Council of the APC. It has been a great honour working with you to contribute towards the building of our dear nation,” her letter partly reads.
In a separate statement issued on Saturday, the activist said she quit partisan politics as the parties have no ideological difference.
“After much reflection and careful consideration, I have decided to part ways with party politics,” she announced.
“I have come to the realization that my values and beliefs no longer align with party politics.
“Our political parties have no ideological differences and are simply robes that politicians wear to serve their personal needs and interests at any given time.
“As a result of which we see politicians changing from one robe to another whenever it suits them.”
Sixty-seven-year-old Naja’atu’s resignation is coming one month to the presidential election.
Her Saturday resignation letter was directed to the APC National Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu, in which she also decried the state of the nation.
She said recent developments in the political and democratic space prompted it impossible for her to continue participating in party politics.
“The challenges that Nigeria faces today require me to continue championing the struggle for a better country with a clear conscience as I remain absolutely loyal to Nigeria,” Naja’atu said.
“I am committed to supporting individuals that are truly interested in addressing the root causes of our challenges. To remain true to such commitments, one must be willing to take bold and decisive steps,” she added.
She expressed regret that citizens still face insecurity, poverty, inequality, and lack of access to basic services.
Naja’atu said the problems required the consolidated efforts of competent and patriotic leadership across every level of governance.
Hajiya Naja, as fondly called, advised Nigerians to be aware of the consequences of their decisions and their choices in the 2023 elections.
