After dumping Tinubu, APC, Najatu Muhammad pays visit to Atiku
Hours after dumping the ruling All Progressives Congress, Najatu Muhammad, a former key campaigner for Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the APC’s presidential candidate, met Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential candidate.
She reportedly visited Atiku at his Abuja home
Dino Melaye, a representative for Atiku’s campaign, was one of the people that welcomed Muhammad at the former vice president’s home, it was learnt.
Given that she hasn’t made the conversation at the meeting public, it’s unclear if the visit represents support for Atiku.
On why she stopped sporting Tinubu, Muhammad, who is from Kano Municipal Local Government Area. said that Tinubu “hardly thinks straight.”
“Yes, I am no longer supporting him (Tinubu); that is why I left the party. A lot has changed. He can hardly think straight. I am very sure of that. You can see his clips.
“I have transcended religious, tribal or regional sentiments, so I can’t afford to look at things with that narrow premise. I think it is not only irresponsible, it is criminal because we have succeeded in dividing this country for selfish reasons. We can’t continue like that. We need to move our country forward. That is my reason. I have nothing personal against anyone,” she had said.
The former director of the APC campaign claimed in a letter dated January 19, 2023, and addressed to the APC national chairman, Abdullahi Adamu, that she departed because of recent changes to the nation’s political and democratic landscape.
