A member of the Bola Tinubu Campaign Organisation, has declared that the resignation of its Campaign Director-General, Abdulmumin Jibrin, from membership of the APC, has nothing to do with Bola Tinubu, a presidential aspirant of the party.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) quoted an anonymous source as saying that the former federal lawmaker’s resignation had nothing to do with Tinubu or Jibrin’s work as DG of the Tinubu Support Group Management Council.
Jibrin, who represented the Kiru/Bebeji Federal Constituency of Kano State in the 8th Assembly, announced his resignation from the APC via Twitter on Saturday.
Recall that Jibrin belonged to a faction of the APC in Kano State, led by former governor Ibrahim Shekarau, that lost out at the Supreme Court on Friday to the Governor Abdulahi Ganduje’s faction .
The Supreme Court had dismissed the appeal filed by the G-7 faction of the APC led by Shekarau, challenging the ward and local government congresses conducted by the Ganduje faction of the party.
The source further revealed that Jibrin’s resignation had to do with local issues in Kano APC.
“However, I understand Asiwaju Tinubu is intervening to resolve the matter with the party leadership in Kano,” he said.
Jibrin who was silent on his next move, also said in the tweet that he would announce developments in due course.
