BREAKING NEWS: Another Minister Resigns; Set To Dump APC

Nigeria's minister for women affairs, Aisha Alhassan, has resigned her position.

Ms Alhassan who is widely known as Mama Taraba, was appointed as a minister in 2015 by President Muhammadu Buhari when he assumed office.

In a September 29 letter to the president, Ms Alhassan decried her disqualification from contesting for the All Progressives Congress’ governorship ticket in Taraba State, saying the action constituted a grave injustice against her since she paid to purchase the form and had been a loyal member of the party since 2014.

She told the president she decided to resign from the cabinet because the APC has effectively disqualified her from being a minister if the party does not find her fit to contest for a governorship seat.

Alhassan is also known as been an affiliate if a presidential aspirant under the PDP Atiku Abubakar. And news has it that in little or no time,  the resigned minister might dump the APC for PDP.
