During an interview with Arise News, a former All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, Hajiya Najaatu Muhammad, stated that she couldn't be a zombie by supporting someone she didn't know. She added that she just can't follow the APC presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, because he said she should.
She revealed that Tinubu called her and told her that he respected her decision not to accept the directorate appointment. She further revealed that she does not want to make the same mistake she made with Buhari by supporting someone with whom she's not familiar.
According to him, "That night around 11 p.m., I started to get phone calls." Normally, I don't pick up my calls at night, but then I saw a message saying that Asiwaju wants to talk to you. So I gave them a reply, and I'm waiting. Immediately after they saw my text, they called me back, and Asiwaju called me; he said Hajiya, I said sir, and he said I respect your stance in not accepting the appointment. I said yes, sir, because I can't be a zombie. I can't follow you because you said I should. "Let me know what you have for us."
