The All Progressives Congress (APC) has called for the immediate resignation of the Minister of Women Affairs, Aisha Jumai Alhassan over what it tagged her ‘derogatory remarks’ against President Muhammadu Buhari.
Alhassan, famously known as Mama Taraba, has been under fire following her recent comment that she would support former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar even if President Buhari opted to contest in 2019.
She had said, “And again, Baba Buhari did not tell us that he is going to run in 2019.
“Let me tell you today that if Baba said he is going to contest in 2019, I swear to Allah, I will go before him and kneel and tell him that ‘Baba I am grateful for the opportunity you gave me to serve your government as a minister but Baba just like you know I will support only Atiku because he is my godfather. If Atiku said he is going to contest.”
Reacting to her assertion, while fielding questions from newsmen at the APC national secretariat Abuja on Friday, a member of the National Working Committee (NWC) and National Vice Chairman, Northwest zone, Inuwa Abdukadir, said Alhassan’s comment was crude.
“She must resign over her derogatory comment against the person and office of President Buhari. It is very obvious that she is beginning to bite the finger that is feeding her,” he said.
Reacting to Atiku’s claim that he was abandoned after he brought the APC to power, Abdukadir described the former vice president as a liar and blackmailer, labeling his attack on President Muhammadu Buhari and the party as ‘misleading.’
