BREAKING: Mama Taraba joins UDP

BREAKING: Mama Taraba joins UDP

A former minister of Women Affairs, Aisha Alhassan, on Saturday defected from the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, to United Democratic Party, UDP.

Mrs. Alhassan resigned from President Muhammadu Buhari’s cabinet today, following her disqualification by the ruling party to contest for governor of Taraba State.

Recall that the National Working Committee, NWC, of the party took the decision to axe Mrs. Alhassan based on the report of the party’s Governorship Aspirants Screening Committee.

The ex-Minister’s letter of resignation obtained by DAILY POST reads in part: “I write with a lot of respect to infor 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).”

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

“Up to the time of writing this letter, no reason was given by the Party for my disqualification to contest election under the APC.”

At the UDP secretariat in the state, Mrs. Alhassan said she dumped the APC because of the injustice meted on her.

Mrs. Alhassan said she was joining the UDP alongside all her supporters.

It was gathered that she defected alongside seven APC members of the State House of Assembly, a member of the House of Representatives and all the APC executives in the 16 local government areas and 169 wards of the state.
