Amosun: Alhassan should have resigned, her loyalty can’t be in two places

Ibikunle Amosun, Ogun state governor, says Aisha Alhassan, minister for women affairs, should have resigned her position after championing the emergence of ex-vice president Atiku Abubakar as Nigeria’s next president.

Amosun said although the minister has the right to express her stance, she cannot be loyal to two masters.

Speaking to journalists in Abeokuta on Saturday, he said it had become obvious that “no contribution to the development” of the Muhammadu Buhari-administration can be expected from her.

“Though she is entitled to her own opinion at any point in time, she should have just resigned her appointment because her loyalty cannot be in two places,” he said.

“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.”

The governor said ill health is the “only” encumbrance that can stand between President Buhari and seeking a second term in office.

“The only thing that can prevent President Muhammadu Buhari from contesting is if his health cannot take it,” he said.

He inferred that Nigeria’s situation may have been grave had the Buhari administration not been at the helm of affairs.

“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,” said the governor.
