JUST IN : Aisha Alhassan Resigns As Minister, Dumps APC { See Letter}


The minister of Women Affairs, Aisha Alhassan, has resigned from President Muhammadu Buhari’s cabinet, following her disqualification by the ruling party to contest for governor of Taraba State.

On Thursday, the National Working Committee, NWC, of the party took the decision to axe Aisha Alhassan and another minister Adebayo Shittu based on the report of the party’s Governorship Aspirants Screening Committee.

Adebayo Shittu is aspiring to become the governor of Oyo State, while Aisha Alhassan, popularly known as Mama Taraba, is gunning for Taraba governor.

The minister’s letter of resignation obtained by DAILY NIGERIAN reads in part: “I write with a lot of respect to inform Mr President of my decision to resign my appointment as a Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and as a member of the All Progressives Congress APC).”

Aisha Alhassan further said in the letter that she “had always been a very committed party member and was at no time queried or admonished for any wrong doing or unconstitutional behaviour.”
