The director of the civil society directorate of the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council, Hajiya Naja’atu Muhammad has resigned from the party.

Naja’atu’s resignation from the ruling party comes five weeks to the 2023 presidential election scheduled for Saturday, 25 February.

Daily Trust reports that while announcing her resignation in a letter dated 19 January and addressed to party’s national chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, Naja’atu listed some of the challenges facing the country as her reason for leaving the ruling party.

A national commissioner at the Police Service Commission, Naja’atu said she needed to concentrate on her struggle to make Nigeria a better place for all.

The letter read in parts: “I am writing to you to intimate you of my resignation from the All Progressive Congress (APC). I am by this letter also informing you of my resignation as the Director of the Civil Society directorate of the Presidential Campaign Council of the APC.

“It has been a great honour working with you to contribute towards the building of our dear nation. However, a number of recent developments in the country’s political and democratic space, make it impossible for me to continue to participate in party politics.

“The challenges that Nigeria faces today require me to continue championing the struggle for a better country with a clear conscience as I remain absolutely loyal to my dear country Nigeria.

“Kindly accept my most sincere appreciation for your leadership as the chairman of the APC”.

In a separate statement issued on Saturday, the former APC chieftain said she had realised that her views did not align with those of the ruling party. She also noted that she would focus on supporting individual candidates who are truly interested in addressing the major challenges bedeviling the nation.

She added: “After much reflection and careful consideration, I have decided to part ways with party politics. I have come to the realisation that my values and beliefs no longer align with party politics.

“Our political parties have no ideological differences and are simply robes that politicians wear to serve their personal needs and interests at any given time. As a result of which we see politicians changing from one robe to another whenever it suits them.

“What is important at this point in time is the individual wearing the robe and not the robe itself. I am committed to supporting individuals that are truly interested in addressing the root causes of our challenges as a nation. To remain true to such commitments, one must be willing to take bold and decisive steps”.
