Call for withdrawal of Aisha as minister unnecessary – Alhaji
A member of the Sokoto Sultanate, Alhaji Mu’azu Alhaji, has described the clamour for the replacement of Hajiya Aisha Abubakar as minister representing Sokoto State as unfortunate.
Alhaji, an uncle to Hajiya Aisha said the call was unnecessary because she is a member of the sultanate and has the right to represent Sokoto anywhere.
He said as a technocrat, Aisha had excelled in her chosen career, stressing that she is not only an indigene of Sokoto State but the daughter of the former minister of finance and the present Sardauna of Sokoto, Alhaji Abubakar Alhaji.
“Her mother, Hajiya Amina is the first daughter of the eighteenth Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Ibrahim Dasuki.
“She schooled at Queen’s College Lagos because her father was working there as a federal civil servant. And it was a privilege for her to have worked in the banking sector outside Nigeria. It is therefore wrong of political opportunists, who are making the claims that she is not from Sokoto and that she is not a card-carrying member of the APC and things like that,” he said.
