Why I Retrieved My Furniture, Computers From APC – Mama Taraba

The former minister of women affairs and social development, Aisha Alhassan has explained why she retrieved the properties she donated to Taraba All Progressives Congress, APC.

Alhassan, popularly known as Mama Taraba, said since she was no longer in the party, she saw no reason why she couldn’t take back properties she donated to her former party.


According to her, her move was not wrong because of the level of injustice they meted to her.

Recall that Alhassan, last month, decamped from the APC to the United Democratic Party, UDP. She dumped the ruling party after she was screened out of the race for the governorship ticket in Taraba State.

Speaking with newsmen in Jalingo, Alhassan said she never ordered the removal of the donated items, but however, gave the nod when her supporters insisted.

“I did not even give the directive but when they called and told me that was what they wanted to do, I gave them the go ahead.


“There was no point stopping them because of the kind of injustice the party meted on me. If I had left the party freely, I could decide to leave the items there but you know the circumstances.

”I bought the items to furnish the Secretariat and now that I have moved on to the UDP, it is not out of place that I move with what belongs to me.”
