Aisha Alhassan Apologies To The APC.

The Minister of Women Affairs and Social Development, Hajia Aisha Alhassan has apologized to the leadership of the All Progressives Congress, the APC over the comments she made in support of former vice president, Atiki Abubkar's presidential bid in 2019.

The minister, popularly called Mama Taraba was summoned as acknowledged by the Publicity Secretary of the APC, former minister of Sports, Mr. Bolaji Abdullahi who said:

“Yes, the party invited her and she has come. When she came, we asked her to explain to us what truly transpired and in what context she said what she said and she did offer these explanations.
Now, having offered her explanations, we acknowledged that as a member of this party, she is entitled to her opinion and she is entitled to her choice.
However, as a senior member of this party, her statements represent an act of indiscretion because with the kind of position she occupies even within the party, she is a party leader in her own right, what she said was not what she was supposed to say at the time that she said it.
She ought to have exercised greater judgement than she did. She acknowledged that yes, maybe she ought not to have…maybe the timing was wrong and she apologised that if she had put the party in any difficult position, she apologised.”
