Aisha AlHassan Defends Decision to Defend Atiku......."Pres. Buhari Said He Will Contest for Only One Term"

The current Minister for Women Affairs and former Governorship candidate, Taraba State, who came under heavy criticism yesterday for defending Atiku Abubakar, against her boss, Pres. Buhari has defended her action stating the current president said he would run for only one tenure.......

“In 2015 prior to the election, when Buhari decided to contest following intense pressure, he declared that he was going to serve one tenure, that is four years.

“And to date no-one can claim Buhari has expressed any desire to stand for re-election in 2019.”


Meanwhile, this is what she told BBC Hausa that sparked the whole controversy......
If today Buhari decides to go for re-election… I will go and kneel before him and tell him, ‘Father, I’m grateful for the opportunity you have given me to serve in your cabinet but you know Atiku is my mentor, staying around you will portray me as a hypocrite and I’m not one’, that is if Atiku declares his interest to contest,”

Meanwhile, The Nation alleges that some ministers are already against her after she made those utterances......
 “She shocked me because I used to think she is closer to the President. What you cannot dispute is that the President has never hidden his respect for her. She was away from the cabinet for months when she was ill and the President tolerated her absence. She should have chosen a different approach to it because one good turn deserves another.”
Another minister said her utterance and action is like passing vote of no confidence on your boss………
“Some of us called her when the video went viral and she confirmed the comments attributed to her. “To me, I think it is like passing a vote of no confidence on your boss. I think it is untidy to write off your boss as incompetent to continue in office.”
