Former Minister Of Women Affairs, Aisha Alhassan.
The immediate past Minister of Women Affairs, Aisha Alhassan has been screened out of the race for the governorship ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Taraba State.
Alhassan resigned her ministerial position in July to pursue her governorship, having come within whiskers of winning the election in 2015 only to see the position go to Darius Ishaku of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
As the APC candidate in 2015, Alhassan polled 275,966 votes while Ishaku polled 369,318, according to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), despite leading the original election that preceded a rerun in the areas where voting was cancelled.
Alhassan’s disqualification was communicated to the press by Yekini Nabena, acting National Publicity Secretary of the APC, following a meeting of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC), which reviewed the report of the governorship aspirants screening committee.
Political observers believe that Alhassan’s fate may not be unconnected with her loyalty to former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar who is aspiring to be Nigerian President under the banner of leading opposition party, the People’s Democratic Party, PDP.
