Aisha Alhassan, famously known as Mama Taraba has been disqualified from running for the governorship seat of the state by the National Working Committee of the All Progressives Congress.

Her disqualification was made known today in a statement listing all the governorship aspirants taking part in the direct and indirect primaries of the party on Friday.

She was disqualified by the screening committee of the NWC. No reason was stated.

But last year, Aisha showed some disloyalty to the party and President Buhari when she said she would support former vice-president Atiku Abubakar in a leadership race against Buhari.


Also disqualified were Chief Osiobe Eric Okotie in Delta state
and Barr. Ejikeme Ugwu in Enugu state.

In Niger state, the only aspirant against against incumbent Governor Sani Bello was disqualified. He is Abubakar Maman Jiya Maaji.This also happened in Kebbi state, where the aspirant against Governor Atiku Bagudu was also axed. He is Ibrahim Mohammed Mera.

Ebonyi, Imo states have nine candidates each. Imo’s aspirants include the deputy governor Eze Madumere and Senator Hope Uzodinma, along with Governor Rochas Okorocha’s in-law, Uche Nwosu.
