The Minister of Women Affairs and Social Development, Aisha Alhassan, also known as Mama Taraba, has resigned from President Muhammadu Buhari’s cabinet.

She is also rumoured to have made up her mind to dump the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, to the United Democratic Party, UDP.

Her resignation and move to join the UDP follows the decision of the National Working Committee of the APC to disqualify her from running in the Taraba State governorship election on its platform

The minister’s letter of resignation obtained by Daily Correspondents reads in part: “I write with a lot of respect to infor Mr President of my decision to resign my appointment as a Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and as a member of the All Progressives Congress APC).”

Mrs Alhassan further said in the letter that she “had always been a very committed committed party member and was at no time queried or admonished for any wrong doing or unconstitutional behaviour.”

“Up to the time of writing this letter, no reason was given by the Party for my disqualification to contest election under the APC.”
