ABUJA — THE Minister of Women Affairs and Social Development, Aisha Alhassan, who last September vowed not to support President Muhammadu Buhari for a second term has changed her mind and vowed to ensure he returns for a second term.

Alhassan, in a phone interview w, Thursday, apparently may have changed track as she denied claims that she had resigned her ministerial appointment to enable her contest the governorship election in Taraba State.

Saying that she was firmly in office and backing the president, she said: “I am also helping in mobilising support for him (Buhari) and the APC for the 2019 election,’’ she said.

“Contrary to insinuations especially in the social media, I only sought for permission from President Muhammdu Buhari to begin consultations.

“This is preparatory to my seeking nomination from our great party the All Progressive Congress (APC) to contest for the office of the governor of Taraba State in 2019, which he has graciously accepted,” she said.

Mrs Alhassan added: “The letter in circulation in the social media does not in any way mean or suggest resignation.
“The letter is straight forward and unambiguous.

“Our esteemed supporters and loyal party men and women in Taraba should please disregard any rumour of my resignation.
“When the time comes for me to resign, I will do so in accordance with the laid down procedure and regulations.’’
