“Let me tell you today that if Baba said he is going to contest in 2019, I swear to Allah, I will go before him and kneel and tell him that ‘Baba I am grateful for the opportunity you gave me to serve your government as a minister but Baba just like you know I will support only Atiku because he is my godfather.

“If because of what I said, I am sacked, it will not bother me because I believe in Allah, that my time has elapsed that is why…

“Baba is not a mad man like those calling for my sack. They have been sending it and spreading that if Baba sees this I will be sacked.”

Recall that the minister caused an uproar when she openly declared her support for Atiku Abubakar for the 2019 presidential elections when she led a delegation of APC members from her state on a Sallah visit to the former Vice President.
