APC Advises Alhassan To Step Aside
The All Progressives Congress, APC has advised the Minister of Women Affairs and Social Development to step aside instead of trying to divide the party with her utterances.
The party also called on the former Vice President Atiku Abubakar to refrain from making further statement that could bring the party to disrepute.
Reacting to the statement made by Alhassan that Abubakar was her godfather and that she would support his presidential ambition in 2019, the APC National Vice Chairman (North West), Alhaji Inuwa Abdulkadir condemned the utterances and warn her to desist from such.
He was reacting to statements credited to the duo within the last two days.
APC decried the statement credited to Abubakar that the party had used and dumped him, adding that the former vice president is still one of the party leaders and that he had always been invited to meetings.
According to Abdukadir, the former vice president had meetings severally with President Muhammadu Buhari, adding that if Abubakar is only being economical with the truth.
“It is unfair for Abubakar to say he was used and dumped while it is also advisable for Alhassan to step aside,” he said.
