A former member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council, Hajia Naja’atu Mohammed, has claimed that some northerners are plotting to make Senator Kashim Shettima president if the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, becomes incapacitated.
She told This Day that some northerners urging Tinubu to continue with his presidential ambition so his running mate can replace him if his health fails.
Hajia Naja’atu, who had recently resigned as the APC campaign organization director for civil society, disclosed that some supporters of northern extraction are banking on Tinubu’s eventual incapacitation so that Shettima could assume office as constitutionally stipulated.
While stating that the northerners are banking on his ill health, Mohammed said: “They just want to push him for them to be the president. It’s not even in his interest.”
She added, “Some people from Maiduguri called me today (Monday) asking, ‘Hajia, why did you do this? You have now punctured our interest. Our son is going to be president, and you’re talking like that? After all, look at Tinubu; he cannot do it. We’re all for Kashim. You have not done well for us.”
