A campaign director of the Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmad Tinubu, has resigned from her position.
Najatu Muhammad was the Director of the Civil Society Directorate of the APC Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) before her resignation on Thursday, January 19, 2023.
Ms Muhammad, in a letter, addressed to the National Chairman of the APC, Abdullahi Adamu, said she is resigning from partisan politics due to a lack of ideological differences amongst political parties.
The letter reads in part, “In line with article 9.5 (i) of the Constitution of the All Progressives Congress (APC), 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 (Mr Adamu) to contribute towards the building of our dear nation. However, a number of recent developments in the country’s political and democratic space make it impossible for me to continue to participate in party politics.”
Ms Muhammad is the third member of the PCC to officially resign from the Council. In early January, Ahmed Ibeto and Zanna Ali resigned.
Ahmed Ibeto, The Assistant Secretary of the North-central Directorate of Mobilization, in a letter dated January 3, 2023, which was addressed to the APC Ibelu Central Ward, Magama Local Government, Niger State, said his resignation was due to lack of unity of purpose and unending litigations, among others.
Another PCC member, Zanna Ali, a member of the Directorate of Youth Mobilization, North-east, also said his resignation was based on the inability of the ruling party to present a credible presidential candidate.
