Buhari should sack Alhassan Now - APC Lawmaker

Buhari should sack Alhassan Now - APC Lawmaker

Atiku's comments come just hours after a Minister in Buhari's cabinet, Aisha Alhassan, said the former Vice President is her godfather and supported his 2019 presidential ambition.

Many people have called on Alhassan to resign as it is not possible for her to support Atiku and still be a minister in Buhari's adminstration.

In a short reaction when she spoke briefly with journalists on Thursday at the Presidential Villa, Mrs. Alhassan said she has said all that needed to be said in her interview with BBC Hausa.

"I expected her to resign immediately after the comments".

Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has said President Buhari will disclose his decision on a second term in office "at the appropriate time".

"I said it BEFORE, DURING and AFTER the 2015 presidential campaign that the truth about the Chibok girls and those behind BH was yet to be heard".

Mexico hit by deadly hurricane as it still reels from Friday's natural disaster
The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre said waves of 3.3 feet (1 metre) above the tide level were measured off Salina Cruz, Mexico. Details on damage from remote areas were not clear, raising the possibility that the death toll could rise, officials said.

He dismissed the claim by the governor that his group was asking President Buhari to seek re-election in 2019, pointing out he lacks any electoral value and credibility.

Buhari made Alhassan women's minister after she narrowly failed to be elected to run the eastern state of Taraba, making her the country's first female state governor.

NAN recalls that criticisms has continued to trail the minister's pronouncements over the 2019 presidential contest during a Sallah homage to Abubakar on September 4, 2017, with many viewing it as a campaign for Abubakar.

Efforts to also get the Special Adviser, Media and Publicity to the President, Femi Adesina, to comment also met a brick wall.

She urged Nigerians to support the policies and programmes of the Buhari administration because it was time for governance and not yet time for politicking.

"I am not Mr President; I believe he will review the development at the right time, but for somebody to go public like she did, it means she might be working against the government and will not want it to succeed", he said. I don't think the President is terminally ill and, like every other human being, people fall sick but the problem is because he is the President, is in government you begin to hear stories, but he is back. What will I say now, I have said all in BBC Hausa.
