The Tinubu Media Office claimed that Hajiya Naja’atu Mohammed, the former Director of Civil Society Organisations for the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council, hastily resigned why the party was about firing her due to incompetence and for acting as a mole within the campaign council.
Recall that Naja’atu announced her resignation on Saturday, citing the lack of ideological unity among the country’s political parties. News of her resignation quickly spread through the media.
Following her resignation, the former APC power player vowed to stay out of politics but later said she supported Atiku Abubakar, the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate.
However, the Asiwaju/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council claimed in a statement released by the Tinubu Media Office and signed by Mahmud Jega on Tuesday that Naja’atu resigned before she was sacked for incompetence.
The statement partly read, “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. Her desperate, fact-free, machination-filled, and imaginary utterances since her sack from the campaign has proved beyond doubt that she was unfit to serve in the first place until it was discovered that she was actually a mole.
“Not being a medical doctor but whose profession in the last three decades was as a political jobber and expert name-dropper, she nevertheless issued a pseudo-medical report on our presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, after a brief meeting in London.
“Even the association of native doctors would sack her for quackery and for reaching a medical conclusion without any test.
“Despite his position as the clear front runner in the 2023 presidential race, Asiwaju has been running the most punishing campaign schedule of any of the presidential candidates, and has already visited many parts of the country with an almost non-stop schedule of rallies, town hall meetings and meetings with professional, community, business and religious groups and associations.”
While it urged the public to be wary of the former campaign director, the media arm of the APC Presidential Campaign Council lamented that “Naja’atu claimed that when she asked Asiwaju what plans he had for the North, he answered that he had none.”
The media group described the claim as “strange and questions the integrity of the woman and her story.”
