Amosun to Alhassan: You should have resigned
From Kehinde Akinyemi, Abeokuta
Ogun State governor, Sen. Ibikunle Amosun, said yesterday that resignation of appointment would have been a better option for him, if he were in the shoes of the Minister of Women Affairs, Hajia Aisha Alhassan, whose support for former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar’s presidential ambition has been generating reactions.
The minister had publicly acknowledged her position and support for the former Vice President during a visit to his residence.
But Amosun, while fielding questions from Daily Trust on Sunday at the launch of “Lamidi Ayinla Sofenwa: the quintessential gentleman and educationist” and launch of “L.A Sofenwa Memorial Scholarship scheme” organized by the Egba Science Education Foundation in Abeokuta, yesterday, said the Minister should have resigned her appointment.
“You cannot blow both hot and cold at the same time. She is entitled to her opinion but I would have saluted her if she had honourably resigned her appointment.
“Falling short of resigning has taken everything away from what she had said. Well, I am not Mr President and I know that at the appropriate time he will review things. For somebody to come out and say such things shows clearly that she is working against the government and she will not want that government to succeed. That is my own believe, although I may be wrong”.
