Buhari’s Minister: Why I Endorse Atiku For 2019


LAGOS SEPTEMBER 7TH (NEWSRANGERS)-Aisha Jummai Alhassan, Minister of Women Affairs, has given reasons why she declared her support for former Vice President Atiku Abubakar to run for president in 2019.
According to reports, Alhassan stated that even if President Muhammadu Buhari decides to re-contest in 2019, she would still support Atiku.
In an interview with BBC Hausa, the minister explained that the former vice president is her ‘godfather’, and that is why she supports him. She reportedly stated: “Atiku is my godfather even before I joined politics.
“And again, Baba Buhari did not tell us that he is going to run in 2019.
“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 Atiku said he is going to contest.
” She stated further: “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.”
