Sokoto APC rejects ministerial nominee Aisha Abubakar
The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Sokoto State on Friday rejected the nomination of Miss A’isha Abubakar as the Ministerial nominee from the state.
Addressing newsmen shortly after a stakeholders’ meeting in Sokoto Friday, the state APC Chairman, Alhaji Usman Danmadamin-Isa, said the party in the state rejected Aisha Abubakar because she hails from the same local government area with Governor Aminu Tambuwal.
He emphasised that it would amount to injustice, if the governor and minister hail from the same Sokoto -south senatorial zone.
Danmadamin-Isa insisted that the party had conducted investigation and realised that the ministerial nominee doesn’t belong to the APC.
”The meeting had discussed the nomination of one lady called A’isha as the nominee from Sokoto state and we have rejected her nomination.
”We have out rightly rejected her nomination because she is not a card-carrying member of the party in the state and nobody knows her, while she knows nobody in the state.
”We have also resolved to, respectfully, write to President Muhammadu Buhari to replace her with another more competent person,” he said
Danmadamin-Isa further explained that the party rejected the nominee because she hailed from the same local government with the state governor.
Thehe meeting was also attended by members of the national and state assemblies from the state and other key stakeholders of the party, including Alhaji Inuwa Abdulkadir, Zonal Vice Chairman, North West.
