I Am Not Supporting Atiku’s Presidential Ambition, Alhassan Claims

Mrs Alhassan  who is also  a Political god-daughter to the former Vice  President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar   disclosed this today  in a phone interview said

“Contrary to insinuations especially in the social media, I only sought for permission from President Muhammdu Buhari to begin consultations.

“This is preparatory to my seeking nomination from our great party the All Progressive Congress (APC) to contest for the office of the governor of Taraba State in 2019, which he has graciously accepted,” she said.

Mrs Alhassan added: “The letter in circulation in the social media does not in any way mean or suggest resignation.

“The letter is straight forward and unambiguous.“Our esteemed supporters and loyal party men and women in Taraba should please disregard any rumour of my resignation.“When the time comes for me to resign, I will do so in accordance with the laid down procedure and regulations.’’

Mrs Alhassan said she is presently preoccupied with the task given to her by Mr Buhari as Minister of Women Affairs and Social Development.

“I am also helping in mobilising support for him and the APC for the 2019 election,’’ she said.
