The national working committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has asked the minister of women Affairs, Aisha Alhassan, to honourably resign over her scathing remarks on President Muhammadu Buhari.
A member of the NWC and national vice chairman, northwest zone, Inuwa Abdukadir, called for the resignation of the minister on Friday, September 8, in Abuja, when speaking with journalists, The Sun reports.
Abdukadir also attacked former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, describing him as a liar and blackmailer.
The party chieftain described Atiku’s recent comments about President Buhari and the party as misleading. The call for Alhassan’s resignation is sequel to the emergence of a video footage of her allegedly pledging to support the presidential ambition of Atiku Abubakar.
This was followed by an interview she granted the BBC Hausa service where she said that even if President Buhari decides to re-contest in 2019, she would still support Atiku.
The minister was reported to have told the BBC that the former vice president is her ‘godfather’, and that is why she supports him.
She reportedly said that President Buhari declared in 2015 that he would do only one term.
