Hajia Naja’atu Mohammed, a former Director of the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council, has said that the ruling party begged to appoint her as a director in the Tinubu/Shettima campaign team.
Mohammed said the presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu in particular kept calling her.
“If they (the APC) knew I was incompetent, why were they begging me? Folake cannot lie and say he did not beg me to take that appointment. Asiwaju called me. I still have the text. He called me severally. I didn’t even know his number, I refused to pick,” Mohammed said on Arise TV Morning Show on Monday morning.
TORI reported that the Minister of State for Labour and Employment and spokesperson for the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council, Festus Keyamo, had claimed that Mohammed chased Tinubu to London for an appointment in the PCC.
“What she (Mohammed) went to London to do was to grovel and lobby. We don’t see people who are worth their salt pursuing Asiwaju all over the globe. Why did she not meet him in Nigeria? Why chase him to London?”, Keyamo had said in an interview with the PUNCH.
