To be sure, the seemingly impregnable wall of the All Progressive Congress (APC) campaign team is starting to crack with some major defections happening in Nigeria ahead of the 2023 general election.

Some of the carpet crusading that APC has seen of late has been carried out by politicians who used to be the backbone of its presidential candidate, Asiwaju BolaAhmed Tinubu. has listed and highlighted at least three of these former APC bosses who would have added more vigor and power to the ruling party’s campaign council nationally if they had stayed.

1. Abdul Mumin Jibrin

Abdulmumin Jibrin, former CEO of the Bola Tinubu Support Group, in May 2022, confirmed that he had resigned from the APC and later joined the New Nigerian People’s Party (NNPP).

In a lengthy article posted on his verified Facebook page, Jibrin said he left the APC “to take the necessary steps to ensure that I survive the attack of a vengeful man who abuses the privileges of his distinguished office to thwart my career and the career of many others.”

He also said that he would no longer be involved in Tinubu’s presidential campaign because he has moved to NNPP.

Although the former member of the House of Representatives did not name the “vengeful man” who prompted his departure, there are strong indications that he was referring to Abdullahi Ganduje, the governor of Kano state.

2. Beatriz Nkwuda

Another prominent big shot who has lost the APC party and by extension Tinubu is Beatrice Nkwuda, a former leader of Ebonyi Central.

As to why she left the APC, Nkwuda noted that before Umahi’s defection from the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), she and her ruling party colleagues were at peace and freedom, but that all changed when Umahi joined.

According to her, Governor Ebonyi took charge of everything, without caring about the old men in the party, whom he failed to accommodate in his supposed autocratic style of leadership.

3. Hajiya Najaatu Muhammad

Najatu’s decision to switch from the APC to the PDP was a heavy blow to the ruling party, especially Jagaban.

Although after her defection, the APC claimed that Najatu had been a mole for Atiku Abubakar, the PDP’s presidential standard-bearer, she opened up after her mistake of endorsing President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015 will not be repeated by voting for Tinubu in 2023.

She said:

“I followed Buhari and millions of people followed Buhari because they thought he would change Nigeria for the better, but we never gave him an agenda, we never gave him demands, we never had an agreement with him on what we want.

“So this time we have to learn from experience. Buhari ruled out all his supporters, he ruled out each and every one of us. None of us were taken to the Village. And all the promises he made about corruption, security, agriculture and giving Nigerians an enabling environment, it didn’t deliver.”

Mental Ability: Najatu fires a new shot at Tinubu, reveals why he can’t support him

As the 2023 general election approaches, a former All Progressive Congress (APC) head, Hajiya Najaatu Muhammad, has questioned the mental abilities of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the party’s presidential candidate.

Najaatu, who said he followed Buhari blindfolded and without an agenda, insisted that Nigeria’s next president must be mentally sound.

She revealed this in a recent interview.
