Minister Of Women Affairs, Aisha Alhassan Declares Her Support For Atiku Abubakar Come 2019 Election


The Minister of Women Affairs, Aisha Alhassan, in an interview with BBC Hausa, says she will support Atiku Abubakar, if he runs for presidency in 2019.

While many see this as an affront on the president, Alhassan said, Buhari did not say he would run for a second term.

According to her, Atiku is her godfather and she doesn’t mind losing her job because of her statement.

Her statement, as transcribed by TheCable

“Atiku is my godfather even before I joined politics. And again, Baba Buhari did not tell us that he is going to run in 2019,” she said.

“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 says he is going to contest.

“If because of what I said, I am sacked, it will not bother me because I believe in Allah, that my time has elapsed that is why… Baba is not a mad man like those calling for my sack. They have been sending it and spreading that if Baba sees this I will be sacked‎.”
