- “I merely gave my boys the nod to move them out because the APC was wicked to me. If I had left the party on my own, I would not have bothered about the items, but you know the circumstances that pushed me out.”..Mama Taraba
Aisha Alhassan popularly known as Mama Taraba yesterday , ssid that the All Progressive Party ( APC) was wicked to and deserved nothing from her .
She was responding to the news that she stripped the APC in Jalingo of rugs, air-conditioning sets and tables she bought for the party when she was a member.
According to the APC spokesman in Taraba ,Aaron Artimas the party leadership obliged her request and watched as she removed everything from the secretariat, expressing surprise that the former minister “stooped so low to recover even minor items she had donated”.
“We find this development shameful, unfortunately, it is true. The former minister has emptied the office she furnished when she was a member of the APC,” he said.
“It is amazing to us because Aisha Alhassan was the highest beneficiary of the party in the state.
“It is a very shameful action, but we shall leave her to conscience.”
He added that Alhassan embarrassed herself with her action because she was still “keeping the benefits that accrued to her as a minister under the APC-led administration”.
Reacting, the former minister said she did not order the removal of the items, but supported it because of the “injustice” the party meted to her.
Aisha Alhassan was a minister in Buhari government until recently when she resigned her appointment and joined United Democratic party ( UDP)after she was denied the governorship ticket by the APC
