President MUHAMMADU BUHARI is presiding over today’s Federal Executive Council meeting, his second since his return to the country from medical vacation in the U.K
But all the attention is on the Women Affairs Minister, AISHA ALHASSAN who has been the subject of media attention since a video went viral of her saying she will not support President BUHARI in 2019 if former Vice President ATIKU ABUBAKAR runs for Presidency.
ALHASSAN arrived the meeting at 10:45am, fifteen minutes before the President, to a warm reception from other ministers.
A video of ALHASSAN in which she appeared to be campaigning for former Vice President ATIKU ABUBAKAR for President in 2019 went viral last week.
The All Progressives Congress has called for her sack, while NASIR EL-RUFAI, the Governor of Kaduna state said President BUHARI was advised against appointing her as minister.
