Tension has brewed in the camp the National Leader of All Progressive Congress APC of Bola Tinubu, as the Director-General of his presidential campaign organisation, Abdulmumin Jibrin dumped the ruling party.
Jibrin, a former member of the House of Representatives announced this shocking decision to dump APC in a tweet on Saturday evening.
He said he was moving on from the party and promised to make known his next political move in a day.
“I have done my best for APC. It’s time to move on. I will announce my new political party within the next 24 hours Insha Allah. I will make a formal statement in due course,” he tweeted.
Some supporters of Tinubu who have since indicated interest in the ambition of the former Lagos State Governor are worried whether Tinubu too would dump the ruling party.
One of the supporters said on social media that Jibrin’s defection from APC sends a signal that Tinubu himself may dump APC to seek an alternative platform to actualise his presidential ambition.
“The defection of the Director-General of the Asiwaju campaign organisation has cast a lot of doubts in our hearts as to whether our mentor is leaving APC or not. It could be a forerunner of the next political move of Asiwaju,” the supporter submitted.
