There has been rumour that President Muhammadu Buhari is bent on sacking the Minister of Women Affairs, Aisha Alhassan, for endorsing the former vice-president Atiku Abubakar to contest for 2019 presidency.




In reaction to the development, Governor Nasir El-Rufai, who admitted Alhassan’s contribution to Buhari’s administration and adding value to people, said it is the sole prerogative of the President either to retain the minister or not, adding that the President is not moved anyway by what she did.

The governor who had also said that the All Progressive Congress leaders warned Buhari not to appoint the minister, after they say her not in Buhari’s camp, but due his large heart and desire to make his regime inclusive, the President ignored warnings.

Speaking on the sack report, El-Rufai said, “It is the President’s prerogative. Look, you can retain a person in the cabinet even if he doesn’t support you, but adds value to the country because in the end, this is a government and it is not a political grouping.

“If Alhassan is performing as Minister of Women Affairs (and Social Development) and adding value to the government and the people of Nigeria, it is the President’s prerogative to retain her despite her political views. But if she is not adding value in spite of her political views, she can be dispensed with; that is the President’s decision.

“I don’t think people should get worried about it. I have worked closely with the President, I know him and I know how he thinks. He doesn’t take these things personally or to heart. What is primary to him is Nigeria’s progress and how well the government is doing and what everyone is contributing (to make it work), that is what matters ultimately.”
