Amo­sun to Al­has­san: You should have re­signed

Sunday Trust - - NEWS -

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”.
