Naja’atu Was a Mole in APC; We Sacked Her for Incompetence – Campaign Council

Presidential campaign council of the All Progressives Congress (APC) said last night that activist and Kano politician, Hajia Naja’atu Mohammed, was sacked from the governing party after it was discovered that she had been a mole in the party.

It said Naja’atu, a former director of Civil Society Directorate in the APC presidential campaign council, was also fired for her incompetence and quarrelsomeness.

Naja’atu had in a letter dated January 19, 2023 addressed to APC National Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu, said she was stepping down from her position because the challenges facing Nigeria compelled her to continue to champion the struggle for a better country with a clear conscience.

But in a statement issued by its public affairs adviser, Mahmud Jega, the APC Presidential Campaign Council said Naja’atu had misled Nigerians into believing she was resigning, whereas her sack letter from the campaign office and the APC had just arrived at her desk.

The statement made available to newsmen last night noted: “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 Organizations 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 have proved beyond doubt that she was unfit to serve in the first place, until it was discovered that she was actually a mole.”

Describing her as a “political jobber and expert name dropper, the APC presidential campaign council wondered why Naja’atu who is not a medical doctor would certify Tinubu not medically fit to govern the country.

“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, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed 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,” Jega stated.

Jega said it is “strange and questions the integrity” of Naja’atu and her story that “that when she asked Asiwaju what plans he had for the North, he answered that he (Tinubu) had none.

“Asíwájú has unfolded an Action plan for the whole country, in which problems bedeviling the North got very comprehensive attention. Asiwaju also attended the Arewa Summit last year, at which he unfolded and elaborated on these programs,” he added.

Questioning Naja’atu’s integrity further, the APC campaign council said, “As conclusive proof of her unstable and unreliable character, Naja’atu said in her pre-emptive “resignation letter” that she was quitting party politics as the political parties have no ideological differences and her values and beliefs no longer align with party politics.

“Within a day, pictures surfaced in the media showing her meeting with the PDP presidential candidate and declaring her support for him. All Nigerians must be wondering what kind of “values and beliefs” she has apart from opportunism, selfishness and greed.

“We were least surprised about her dramatic exit, coming after she went on TV to disparage our party and President Muhammadu Buhari. Only a mole could behave in such a manner.

“We urge our supporters all over the country to ignore the antics of this political soldier of fortune and concentrate on the job of delivering the Tinubu/Shettima ticket at the polls in barely a month from now.”

In a telephone interview with an online newspaper, Naja’atu had claimed that the presidential candidate of the APC, Tinubu, does not have the presence of mind to be the president of Nigeria.

According to her, Tinubu had demonstrated clear symptoms of dementia when she visited him for a private meeting in London.

It was earlier reported Naja’atu had made a U-turn, 72 hours after dumping the APC, saying she was quitting partisan politics.

Naja’atu who resigned on Thursday met with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in Abuja on Sunday evening and pledged her allegiance to the former vice president.

Spokesperson of the Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign, Senator Dino Melaye, confirmed Hajiya Naja’atu Mohammed’s visit to the PDP presidential candidate on Sunday.
