By afolabi

A former director in the presidential campaign council of Bola Tinubu, Najatu Muhammad has said the lives of Nigerians and leadership of the country shouldn’t be entrusted to the All Progressives Congress flag bearer.

This is as she shared some unpleasant details about the health conditions of the former Lagos governor.

Within Nigeria had earlier reports that 67-year-old Kano-based politician dumped the party and resigned from her position as the Director of the Civil Society directorate of the APC Presidential Campaign Council.

Muhammad announced her resignation in a letter addressed to the APC National Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu.

According to her, a number of recent developments in the country’s political and democratic space necessitated her decision to dump the APC and its presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.

Speaking on the reasons for dumping the ruling party, Najatu opened up on the health conditions of Tinubu, saying Tinubu lacks the physical and mental capacity to lead Nigeria.

She disclosed that Tinubu showed clear signs of dementia when she visited him in London.

“Asiwaju that I sat with for two hours, he slept most of the time, it was Bisi Akande that I was really talking to. Most importantly he is not only physically unfit, he is mentally unfit, whether we want it or not, this is the truth. It’s not that I hate him, I respect him because I have heard of one or two people that he assisted which is good.” She told The Whistler.

“But when you talk of leadership of over two hundred million people you know that if you remove tribal sentiments, you know that he is incapable, those that will rule are those around him. This is the reality. He is mentally deranged – I said it!

“I sat with him for two hours in London, when you talk of green, he will give you an answer of red, he can’t even decipher, he has very serious dementia, I believe he has Alzheimer’s because he cannot even hold a cup of tea.”
