In a statement explaining his resignation, on Saturday, Muhammad said the decision to quit partisan politics was taken after much reflection and careful consideration.
“I have come to the realization that my values and beliefs no longer align with party politics. Our political parties have no ideological differences and are simply robes that politicians wear to serve their personal needs and interests at any given time.
“As a result of which we see politicians changing from one robe to another whenever it suites them. What is important at this point in time is the individual wearing the robe and not the robe itself.
“I am committed to supporting individuals that are truly interested in addressing the root causes of our challenges as a nation. To remain true to such commitments, one must be willing to take bold and decisive steps,” she stated.

“Nigerians must be aware of the consequences of their decisions and their choices. Therefore, restricting ones choice to a single political party will be detrimental to the development of our country and our democracy,” she noted.

“I believe that all Nigerians deserve the opportunity to live a life of dignity, security and opportunity. Nigeria has a long history of struggle to build a better future for all its citizens.
“Despite many challenges, we remain resolute to overcome them and create a more prosperous, stable, and just society,” she said.
Muhammad restated his commitment to protecting the rights and freedoms of all citizens, and promoting a culture of tolerance and respect.
