Tinubu Opens Up On Naja’atu Resignation, Reveals That The Former Campaign Director Was Sacked For Incompetence

By Damilare Adeleye

The All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, has revealed that Naja’atu Mohammed did not resign from the ruling party's Campaign Council.

The APC flag-bearer said that Naja’atu Mohammed actually was sacked from her position as his campaign’s Director of Civil Society Organisations for incompetence and for being a mole in his campaign team.

Special Adviser to Bola Tinubu on Public Affairs, Mahmud Jega, said Mohammed was planted to leak sensitive information to the opposition.

A statement by Jega reads partly: “The Asiwaju/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council received with amusement the hasty “resignation” of Hajiya Naja’atu Mohammed from her position as Director of Civil Society Organisations just before she was sacked for incompetence, quarrelsomeness and after being uncovered to be a mole planted in our winning campaign in order to leak sensitive information to our desperate opponents.

“Although she deceived the gullible public by claiming that she resigned, her sack letter with ignominy from the campaign and the party had just arrived at her desk.”

Tinubu said Naja’atu’s desperation, fact-free, machination-filled and imaginary utterances after she was sacked showed that she was “unfit to serve in the first place until it was discovered that she was a mole.”

Mohammed, who defected to the Peoples Democratic Party over the weekend, had claimed to have resigned from her appointment due to Tinubu’s alleged ill health.
