Aisha Alhassan

Nigeria’s Minister for Women Affairs Ministry, Senator Aisha Alhassan has tendered her resignation from office and also quit the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

‘Mama Taraba’ as she is popularly known, made this decision in a letter to President Buhari, dated September 29.

The letter reads in part:

I received with shock and dismay that I was disqualified and not cleared to contest for the 2019 Governorship election by the National Working Committee of the party (APC). No reason was given for my disqualification Sir.

Mr. President may wish to be also informed that I had always been a very committed and loyal Party Member and was not at no time queried or admonished for any wrong doing or unconstitutional behaviour.  Up to this time of writing this letter, no reason is given by the Party for my disqualification to contest election under the APC.

It is for the above reason Sir, that I feel grave injustice was done to me by the Party (APC), therefore my reason to leave the Party and also resign my appointment as Minister. If I am not qualified to contest election in the APC. I feel I am also not qualified to remain a Minister in an APC Government.

She equally tweeted via official Twitter account where she also share the both letters issued:
