Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State has described the open declaration of the Minister of Women Affairs and Social Development, Mrs Aisha Alhassan, for the 2019 presidential ambition of former Vice President, Mr Atiku Abubakar, as a disappointment.
The Governor said it was wrong for the Minister fondly called Mama Taraba to make such declaration while still serving in the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
According to Mr Amosun, the Minister should have just resigned her appointment, saying it was clear she would no longer be contributing to the development of the present government.
However, while saluting her courage, Mr Amosun told newsmen in Abeoluta that “though she is entitled to her own opinion at any point in time, but she should have just resigned her appointment because her loyalty cannot be in two places.”
He added that, “Her falling short of resigning takes everything away from what she said and it is clear that she will no longer be contributing to the development of the present administration.”
Speaking on whether or not the President would run for 2019 presidential election, the Governor said “the only thing that can prevent President Muhammadu Buhari from contesting is if his health cannot take it.”
“If not for this present administration, only God knows where Nigeria would have been. When the government came on board, it was like jumping into the pool at the deep end,” Mr Amosun said.
He scored the Federal Government high in its fight against insurgency, insecurity, corruption as well as efforts at economic recovery through serious diversification drive.
