Jibrin’s resignation from APC nothing to do with Tinubu –Official


Abdulmumin Jibrin


A member of the Bola Tinubu Campaign Organisation, has said the resignation of its  Campaign Director General,  Alhaji Abdulmumin Jibrin,  from membership of the APC, has nothing to do with Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, a presidential aspirant of the party.

The source who spoke to the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, on grounds of anonymity, said  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 2015, announced his resignation from the APC on his Twitter handle on Saturday.

Jibrin, however, 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, however, told NAN that Jibrin’s resignation had to do with local issues in Kano APC.

He said: “However, I understand Asíwájú Tinubu is intervening to resolve the matter with the party leadership in Kano.”

Jibrin who was silent on his next move, also said on his Twitter handle that he would announce developments  in due course.
