How Minister of Women Affairs Alhassan Proudly Failed APC’s Loyalty Test

The All Progressives Congress, APC, has revealed that Minster of Women Affairs, Hajia Jumai Alhassan failed the party’s loyalty test during her mandatory screening to partake in the Taraba state governorship primary.

“As for the Honourable Minister of Women Affairs, she has issues that have to do with party loyalty, said Oshiomhole.

In respect of the Minister of Communication, Adebayo Shittu, he said, “He (Shittu) admitted that he did not do the mandatory NYSC as provided for under the law and in his own judgment, his being a member of the House of Assembly in the state and now as a Minister of the Federal Republic, that these were enough sacrifices. But for us as a party we know that NYSC is a mandatory scheme.

“It is not something you may elect to do or abstain from doing and my understanding of the NYSC Act is that no employer of labour is permitted to employ anyone who graduated under 30 years and who did not obtain an exemption for reasons as provided for in the NYSC Act.

“After interviewing him, we were convinced that….for our party, there are clear lessons we need to learn from our recent past when people…anyway, we were convinced that if he did not do NYSC, that for us, was enough to disqualify him and we had to find the courage to do so.
