Naja’atu Bala Muhammad, the manager of the Bola Tinubu 2023 presidential campaign, has resigned.
She was Director of Civil Society on the Presidential Campaign Council of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
The departure of Naja’atu, 67, comes a month before the presidential elections.
In 2018, President Muhammadu Buhari appointed her as Commissioner of the Police Service Commission (PSC).
In his resignation letter to APC National Chairman Abdullahi Adamu, Naja’atu denounced the state of the nation.
The politician said that recent events in the political and democratic space prevent her from continuing to participate in party politics.
“The challenges Nigeria is facing today compel me to continue upholding the fight for a better country with a clear conscience and being absolutely loyal to Nigeria,” he said.
In a statement Saturday, the activist said she left the scene after realizing her values and beliefs were no longer aligned with party politics.
Naja’atu observed that the platforms have no ideological differences and are “robes worn by politicians to satisfy their personal needs and interests”.
“I am committed to supporting people who are genuinely interested in addressing the root causes of our challenges. To remain true to such commitments, one must be willing to take bold and decisive steps.”
The statement expressed regret that citizens still face insecurity, poverty, inequality and lack of access to basic services.
Naja’atu said the problems require the consolidated efforts of competent and patriotic leadership at all levels of government.
Ahead of 2023, Hajiya Naja, as he is affectionately called, advised Nigerians to be “aware of the consequences of their decisions and choices.
In November, he demanded the prosecution of First Lady Aisha Buhari for the detention of Aminu Mohammed, a senior at Dutse Federal University.
