Aisha Speaks On Governorship Ambition

Aisha Alhassan

Ex-Minister for Women Affairs and Social Development Aisha Alhassan has said that she might not be destined to be governor of Taraba state, northeast Nigeria.

Concise News understands that Alhassan, who ran for the highest office in Taraba on the platform of the United Democratic Party (UDP) in the 2019 general election, visited the state Governor, Darius Ishaku, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Monday.

“It is God that gives power not anybody. You may be the best person for the job, if God doesn’t give you, you cannot have it,” she told the governor.

“Maybe it is not in my destiny to be the Governor of Taraba State, but somebody has to be there in any case at one time or the other.

“We will continue to support you and if there is anything you think we can do for you, I personally will be always available to do that. We are highly delighted to be here and we wish to wholeheartedly congratulate you.”

She gave assurance of her willingness to support the programmes and policies of the state government.

Explained that she and her supporters have no other state than Taraba, she said they had a responsibility to support the government in any way they can.

She said, “You’re the commander of the rescue mission, so we have all joined the rescue team … on behalf of myself and my party loyalists, UDP, and all their supporters in Taraba State, we wish to congratulate you heartily.

“In a contest of this nature, somebody has to win while others lose. I lost not victoriously, but gallantly.”

Governor Ishaku said he was overwhelmed by the former minister’s show of support.
