The Sokoto chapter of the All Progressives Congress has rejected on Friday, October 16, the nomination of Miss A’isha Abubakar as the ministerial nominee representing the state.
The rejection came after the party held stakeholders meeting with Governor Aminu Tambuwal, Vanguard reports.
According to the state chairman of the ruling party in the state, Usman Danmadamin-Isa, who addressed newsmen shortly after the meeting said that the decision to reject Abubakar was unanimous.
Danmadamin-Isa said: “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.”
The chairman added that the basic for her rejection was because she hailed from the same local government as the governor.
The parley was attended by members of the party from the state in national and state assemblies and other key stakeholders.
Meanwhile, following the initial rejection of President Buhari’s ministerial nominee from Oyo state, Governor Abiola Ajimobi had reverted his earlier decision not to back the nomination of Adebayo Shittu.
Ajimobi said he was now giving Shittu his unalloyed support adding that he had forgiven him.
