Buhari has abandoned Taraba, Minister cries out
The Minister of Wom­en Affairs, Hajia Aisha Alhasan, yesterday cried out on what she de­scribed as the abandonment of Taraba by the President Muhammadu Buhari led All Progress administration.
The minister, who led other members of APC from Taraba state on a visit to the leadership of the par­ty at the national secretariat yesterday regretted that de­spite all the contributions of the Taraba state chapter of the APC to the emergence of Buhari’s administration, the state has not been car­ried along by the adminis­tration in the distribution of positions.
While calling on the na­tional leadership of the APC to intervene on behalf of Taraba State APC, Alhassan regretted that apart from her appointment and one Ambas­sadorial slot which are statu­tory and constitutional, “no any meaningful appointment from the state, adding that, the APC members from Taraba state are very worried.
“I have come as a party member and a leader, together with my brothers from Taraba state to air our problems.
“The government in the state is controlled by the PDP and we expected that, you, our parents and this government especially since you knew that we were muscled out, we should have been helped be­cause we did our best.
“No opposition party per­formed as good as we did since 1999. but unfortunately, apart from my appointment which is statutory and constitutional, then that of the ambassadorial, we still do not have any mean­ingful appointment.”
Alhasan, who is popularly called ‘Mama Taraba’, warned the party leaders that if noth­ing is done to address the plight of her people, “we will not know our faith when the next election comes.” - The Authority
