A member of the Bola Tinubu Campaign Organisation, says resignation of its Campaign Director General (DG) Alhaji Abdulmumin Jibrin from membership of the APC, has nothing to do with Sen. Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s presidential aspiration in 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 Jubril’s work as DG of the Tinubu Support Group Management Council.

NAN reports that 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.

NAN, however, recalls that Jubrin 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 Gov. 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 Jubrin’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.”
