Aisha Alhassan, Minister of Women Affairs, says she will support former vice-president, Atiku Abubakar if he decides to run for office in 2019.
In a video which went viral on Wednesday, the minister declared support for the former vice-president which has sparked condemnation, particularly among supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Alhassan in an interview with BBC Hausa, described Abubakar as her godfather, saying she does not mind losing her job for supporting the former number two citizen.
“Atiku is my godfather even before I joined politics. And again, Baba Buhari did not tell us that he is going to run in 2019,” she said.
“Let me tell you today that if Baba said he is going to contest in 2019, I swear to Allah, I will go before him and kneel and tell him that ‘Baba I am grateful for the opportunity you gave me to serve your government as a minister but Baba just like you know I will support only Atiku because he is my godfather. If Atiku says he is going to contest.
