How Tinubu Bribed Govs To Emerge APC Presidential Candidate

A former member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council and Director of Civil Society, Hajia Najaatu Mohammed, has accused Bola Ahmed Tinubu of financially inducing APC governors to emerge as the party’s flagbearer at the primaries.

Truetells Nigeria reports that Hajia Naja’atu Mohammed had last Saturday announced her resignation from the APC campaign organization and the ruling party.

The former director had stated that her conscience would not allow her to continue in the APC PCC, claiming that Tinubu was too sick and possibly suffering from Alzheimer’s disease as he could not hold a teacup when she visited him in London some time ago.

Speaking in an interview with ThisDay, Mohammed said Tinubu’s gaffes and blunders were an indication of ill health, which shows that he is incapable of presiding over the affairs of the nation.

According to her, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo would have been a better choice given Tinubu’s poor health.

Disclosing that the party primary election was a cash-and-carry exercise, she said, “You see, there is nothing like democracy in this democratic system. The whole thing is a hoax. I will tell you, for instance, what happened in their primary election. People were given ballot papers with Asiwaju written on it. That was what happened, and we saw a clip in which governors were collecting money. It’s so shameful. It’s a disgrace.

“Yes, collecting money, sharing money given to them by Asiwaju. It is such a disgrace. It is the first time that I have heard or seen such. At least in this dispensation, I have been in politics for decades, I was born into it. But this is the first time that a presidential candidate will be sponsoring governors.

“This is what is happening. So, you see, Asiwaju is synonymous with money. So, for God’s sake, if all it takes is money, then, what else will he do when he takes over power? It’s for him to retrieve his money. It is not even about Egbe Omo Oduduwa, Osinbajo is, even more Egbe Omo Oduduwa than Tinubu.

“He’s a Professor, he’s brilliant. For few weeks he was given to govern this country, he did a great job. But the Lagos-Ibadan press, they said all sort of things against him. Tinubu controls the strongest propaganda machine in this country, which is the Lagos–Ibadan press.”

The former director of the APC campaign in charge of civil society, who has recently met and allegedly endorsed the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party,  Atiku Abubakar, said those from the north believe Tinubu is not capable of governing.

Let me tell you why they are following Asiwaju, they know that he’s incapable. They know that he can’t decipher, they know that there is something seriously wrong with his brain. It is like they say in Hausa, somebody will hold the horn, and you will be milking. So, all of these people talking all these nonsense know that he’s incapable, know that he’s handicapped but they also know that he’s already a cabal that they can depend on for the piece of a pie.

“No more, no less. I want to tell you that I have not spoken to anyone, both in or outside APC from up north that I know that has told me or that believes Asiwaju is capable. But all they are saying is that you know we have to get something out of it.

The problem is extreme selfishness. All these people that you are talking about are thinking of themselves as individual, their personal interest; they don’t have the country at heart. That is why I said I have to follow my conscience because I cannot afford…in fact, to be silent is criminal. This is my position. Anyone that refuses to talk when they are supposed to talk is either a hypocrite or a coward or both. So, that is why I took the position I took.
