The Minister of Women Affairs Aisha Alhassan, popularly known as “Mama Taraba,” has said the All Progressives Congress (APC) will rule the country forever.
According to The Cable, Alhassan said this during the Inauguration of the Taraba State APC Chairman at the party’s secretariat on Monday. She said:
I will make sure that in my zone, I follow up and by God’s grace Gombe and Taraba will be taken over in 2019. And don’t even talk about Nigeria because it’s already APC and it will continue to be APC forever.
Crisis is normal in a big party like APC, once we can do our national convention, then we face the opposition PDP and I assure you that APC will win more states like Taraba in 2019.
I have a right to choose who becomes the chairman of the party in the state. There is no faction in Taraba. We are very much together, there was no love lost in the state, we were never divided. It was all about political interests.
Alhassan also revealed that she intends to contest in the state’s gubernatorial election in 2019. She said:
I will re-contest the election again in 2019 if God keeps me alive and well.
It is God that gives power to whoever he desires, I won the election 2015, but God did not give me power. I will keep trusting in him and the grassroots people of Taraba and God willing, I will win the election.
