Minister of Women Affairs, Senator Aisha Alhassan, has vowed to oppose President Muhammadu Buhari if he shows interest in the 2019 presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
The minister said she would resign and pitch her tent in the camp of Atiku Abubakar, if the President showed interest to contest against Atiku.
She made the statement while leeading a delegation of political stalwarts on a Sallah visit to the former vice-president, during the recent Sallah holidays in Yola.
In the video, Mrs. Alhassan was heard saying in Hausa:
“Your Excellency, our father and our president by the grace of God come 2019. Before you are your people, your supporters for life, the people of Taraba State. They are here to pay homage and to greet you on the occasion of Sallah and for all that Allah has done for you because Allah has raised your status.
“We heard that they are coming to extend their greetings, so we said we have to be part of this, and we all came to you. Chairman of the party, come out chairman; he is our leader because he is the chairman of the party, I was only made leader of the delegation.
“Here are some of the party officials (pointing at them while sitting). Everybody here is asking to be allowed to say something, but I said no, Baba should be left alone, you are tired…
It is also reported that Mrs. Alhassan, later joined the Atiku delegation to pay Sallah homage to the Lamido Adamawa.
The Presidency is yet to react to the issue, while The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has said that it was a strong vote of no confidence on the President Buhari led government.
