There are strong indications that the Minister of Women Affairs and Social Development, Aisha Alhassan, may dump the ruling All Progressives Congress to the United Democratic Party.
An aide to Mrs. Alhassan, who pleaded anonymity, told our correspondent that the former minister resigned her appointment on Friday morning.
She was said to be waiting for President Muhammadu Buhari’s response before joining the UDP.
However, when contacted, the media aide to Alhassan, Mr. Bala Maina, said the resignation remained a speculation and that the former minister would react at the appropriate time.
