NATIONAL Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bolaji Abdullahi, said the party had not asked Women Affairs Minister, Senator Aisha Alhassan, to resign over her recent comments in the media.

He also said that her appearance at the party’s National Secretariat, Abuja, on Thursday, was not on a summon.

The embattled minister had a closed-door meeting with the party’s leadership at the secretariat.

She had reportedly said that she would support former Vice President Atiku Abubakar if he showed interest in the 2019 presidential race, explaining that the man had been her “godfather”.

The comment drew the flak of APC stalwarts, who dubbed it anti-Buhari and anti-party, saying she was disloyal and should resign or be sacked. At the end of the “meeting”, which lasted about two hours, Alhassan was said to have avoided media enquiry on her mission at the secretariat.

Abdullahi told pressmen in Abuja that the minister had just a meeting with leadership of the party, but “was not asked to resign her position as may be speculated.

“No, that did not come up, what we said was that we understood the context in which she said what she said.

“But, it was an act of indiscretion for someone occupying the position she is occupying in the party to make that kind of statement,” he explained.

But, a source close to APC leadership told newsmen that leaders at the meeting expressed shock and bitterness over the minister’s comment.

According to the source, the minister was told that the party can no longer trust her.
