Contrary to speculations, current National Women Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr. Ramatu Tijjani Aliyu has debunked the assertion that she has withdrawn from recontesting her seat.
In a statement she personally signed and sent to LEADERSHIP, Dr Aliyu said she was shocked at the fabrication by an online news media (not LEADERSHIP) that she had withdrew from the race scheduled to take place at today’s national convention of the party, adding that the development was unfortunate.
The statement reads in part: “I Dr. Ramatu Tijjani Aliyu the incumbent National women leader of the APC and a widely endorsed candidate for the National Women leadership of our great party in Today’s Convention has withdrawn from the race.
“This development is not just unfortunate but a crude demonstration of the garage politics and dirty propaganda being deployed by my Opponent and her sponsors in attempt to deceive our delegates. To think that someone seeking to become a National Women leader of our great party the APC can descend so low is not only bad for the APC but also dangerous for our nascent democracy.
“I hereby clearly and unequivocally reassert that I Dr. Ramatu Tijjani Aliyu is still firmly in the running to retain my office as the National Women leader of the APC and to build on the good work we have started together. I therefore urge our delegates and party faithfuls to disregard and ignore any such news and plots to deceive you into voting for the wrong candidate.” She said.
