APC Drops Mama Taraba, Shittu, others in Governorship Screening

 Hajia Aisha Alhassan, a former Minister, who resigned in July to contest the 2019 governorship election and Barr. Adebayo Shittu, a lawyer and current Minister of Communication have failed the governorship screening exercise of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

The duo will not participate in the party’s governorship primaries in their respective states, Taraba and Oyo states.

Shittu was not cleared because he is yet to do the mandatory National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, program, but no reason was given for Alhassan’s non-clearance.

Alhassan had openly declared support for the presidential bid of former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, who is a top contender in the main opposition party, PDP to challenge incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari.

The full list of aspirants and their status as released by the APC is reproduced below.
