A spokesman for the ruling APC did not immediately return a request seeking comments.

Ms Nelson was appointed to NSITF by President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019, a position she held until May 2021 when she was removed under unclear circumstances. Months before her removal, Mr Buhari praised her as a loyal party member and commended her work towards his administration’s success.

She was born on February 9, 1956, and schooled in Ijebu, Lagos and Ibadan; and was survived by her three children.
