A leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has reacted to statements by Nigeria’s Minister of Women Affairs, Aisha Alhassan, that she would not support any re-election bid of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019 but would rather support a former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, who she referred to as her godfather.
The official also criticised Mr. Abubakar, who recently said that he had been sidelined in party affairs.
The APC National Vice Chairman, North-west, Inuwa Abdulkadir, in a statement said he was not surprised by the statement noting that Mrs. Alhassan had never been a supporter of the president.
Mr. Abdulkadir’s statement aligns with that of the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, who also said yesterday that Mrs. Alhassan had never supported the ‘Buhari ideology.’
Mr. Abdulkadir also warned leaders of the party, particularly, the former vice president to stop “misleading statements aimed at causing division within the party.”
