Mama Taraba.
The Minister for Women Affairs and Social Development, Mrs. Aisha Alhassan has finally resigned her appointment.


In a letter dated 28th of September, 2018, Mrs. Alhassan stated some of her reasons for resigning her appointment and also her membership of the All Progressives Congress, APC which include the fact that her ambition to be Governor of Taraba State will be trunced if she continued as member of the APC and a minster.
Part of her letter read: Mr. President, you may recall that I wrote you to notify you of my intention to again cibtest for Governor of my state in the forthcoming 2019 election under the unbrella of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and you again graciously blessed my intention and wished me well through a letter personally signed by Mr. President which i appreciate and forever cherish.
Sir, I purchased the APC nomination form and went for the screening on Thursday, the 20th of September 2018 along with Ten (10) other contestants for the Governorship of my state, Taraba. I, with your permission proceeded to Taraba State on the 23rd of September 2018 to prepare for the Presidential and Governorship Primaries then scheduled for the 25th and 29th of September 2018 respectively.
While preparing for the primaries in Jalingo, 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 and no reason was given for my disqualification sir.

It is for the above reason Sir, that i feel grave injustice was done me by the Party (APC), therefore my decision 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 Governor.
