Former Minister’s Exit From Party Makes No Difference – Taraba APC
The Taraba chapter of Nigeria’s governing party, the All Progressives Congress, APC has said that the exit of the former Minister of Women Affairs, Hajia Aisha Alhassan, from the party made no difference.
The APC Taraba state Chairman, Mr. Ibrahim El-Sudi, said this while speaking to journalists at the APC National Secretariat in Abuja shortly after a meeting with the Chairman of the party’s Caretaker Committee and Extraordinary Convention, Mai Mala Buni.
He said that Alhassan only polled 16,000 votes when she left APC to contest election in another party, while the APC candidate polled over 340,000 votes.
“So, her movement has not shaken APC in Taraba. It is in the heart of Taraba people that they want APC and they will continue to support APC” he said.
He added that he and delegation of Taraba SPC members visited the Caretaker Chairman to seek solutions to the challenges they are experiencing in the state.
“We also brought the problems of Taraba to the committee to look into them, with a view to solving them.
“After addressing the chairman and the committee, we were assured that they would look into our problem in order to solve the issues that are hanging in the air,” he said.
Mr. El-Sudi expressed confidence in the ability of the committee to address the Taraba state issue.
“The chairman is a tested and trusted leader; he was a party secretary in his state.
“He knows the plethora of problems facing the party and he has already taken steps toward solving most of them,” El-Sudi said.
