Naja’atu Mohammed, a politician and a staunch member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) until her resignation has given her assessment of the presidential candidate of the party, Bola Tinubu after a first-hand meeting with him.
The former Director of the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council spoke to the press after dumbing the Tinubu/Shettima ticket.
According to her, the former Lagos governor lacks the physical strength to rule Nigeria should he win the elections in 2023.
During her personal encounter with the former National Chairman of the party in London, she noted that he was sleeping most of the time.
Below is an excerpt from an exclusive interview she had with The Punch.
“I saw him firsthand in London. He was sleeping most of the time. He cannot stay for ten minutes without dozing off. Sometimes, Pa Bisi Akande supported him like this (shrugs off her right shoulder).”
“It is so frustrating! He didn’t even understand what I was saying. The man is not mentally alert. I asked some of those around him, as well as some of our clerics, who claimed that having a Muslim-Muslim ticket is a Jihad. I asked them, “Can you allow Tinubu to lead you in prayer? Can you allow Tinubu to be your Imam? If you say yes, I will join you. But they said no, so I asked why? They said because he is sick.”
“APC has a candidate that cannot be deciphered, a man that the chairman of the party helped to be able to hold the party’s flag. Let us not crucify Tinubu because of his ill health, but we should also not sacrifice the lives and properties of over 200 million people because we want to be sympathetic to a sick person.”
