The All Progressives Congress, APC, has disqualified two Ministers from being Governorship candidates in their respective States.
Alhassan was seeking to govern Taraba State, on the APC platform, while Mr. Shittu was seeking to govern Oyo State.
Although no reason was given for the failure to clear Alhassan, Shittu was however disqualified, because he failed to participate in the mandatory National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, scheme.
The Spokesperson of the APC, Yekini Nabena, released a list of all Aspirants cleared to participate in the primary elections, slated for this Saturday.
On the list, the name of Alhassan was followed by a short remark, “Not Cleared”; although the statement did not provide details or reasons for the decision.
It would be recalled that Alhassan was caught on video last year, telling former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, that her loyalty was with him, even if he was running against President Muhammadu Buhari.
Recall also, that Atiku was in the APC, before defecting to the opposition PDP, and is one of the Presidential Aspirants in the party.
