My support was for Osinbajo, not Tinubu – Naja’atu

A former member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council, Naja’atu Mohammed, said her support was for vice president, Yemi Osinbajo and not the party’s presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

Naja’atu stated this during an interview with The PUNCH.

WITHIN NIGERIA recalls that Naja’atu resigned from her appointment with the APC and Tinubu’s campaign train weeks before the February 25 polls.

Speaking with PUNCH, Naja’atu said, “Let me tell you what really happened. In the first place, I did not support Tinubu as a presidential aspirant; my support was for Professor Yemi Osinbajo from day one. In fact, I had sent emissaries to Osinbajo to come out and contest, that he is relatively young, well educated, proactive, and brilliant. We noticed that each time Buhari leaves the country; we regain some semblance of sanity, including the value of the Naira.

“When Tinubu emerged, he emerged in the most corrupt way. I knew how delegates were given money to go and vote, but it was not just to go and vote; the name Asiwaju was written on each ballot paper. They were only paid to go and drop it in the box. For that reason alone, I had no interest in that primary election. Yes, I was in the APC, but I couldn’t even liberate myself at that point in time. I waited, but I never attended any of the meetings, and I was not interested in anything.”
