Mama Taraba denies accusing Gov. El-rufai of involvement in Chibok girls kidnap
The embattled minister of women affairs, Senator Aisha Jummai Alhassan, popularly called Mama Taraba, has denied a fake news credited to her that she threatened to expose Kaduna State Governor Nasir Elrufai’s role in Chibok girls kidnap.
The report had said: “The Minister said she was surprised that a dirty character like Elrufai could even have the gut to comment against her preference for Alhaji Atiku Abubakar for 2019 Presidential race.
“She said, there are lot of things Nigerians needs to know about the planning and execution of Chibok girl kidnapping because those behind it will be unmasked very soon. The intention was very obvious, to defame and blackmail PDP and Jonathan out of power.
“The Minister became angry by the comment credited to Elrufai where he was quoted as saying that Buhari was severely warned not to appoint Amina Alhassan as Minister.
But reacting to the report, Mama Taraba in a statement through her media aide Suleiman Dantsoho, said: “The statement allegedly made by her is another ploy by mischief makers to tarnish her hard earned reputation.
“The Current APC Government Under President Buhari Inherited Series Of Problems From The Past Administration, The Kidnap Of The Chibok Girls By The Dreaded Boko Haram Happens To Be One Of Them And President Buhari And Our Military Has Been Able To Rescue Some Of Them And Checked Boko Haram's Excesses. Senator Jummai is not in possession of Any Security Report and therefore will never have made The Statement allegedly made by her against the person of Governor El Rufai.
“Boko Haram kidnapped many others, including women and children apart from Chibok Girls. And this government has been able to rescue most of them. The plot to cause bad blood between Senator Jummai And Her APC Colleagues will continue to hit brick wall.
