Breaking: Two of Buhari’s Ministers not cleared by APC NWC for governorship primaries

APC

Two of President Muhammadu Buhari’s Ministers who have indicated interest in contesting for the governorship seats of their states on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, Adebayo Shittu from Oyo State and Senator Aisha Alhassan from Taraba State, did not get the nod of the National Working Committee of the party.
Their names were part of those released by the party on Thursday as “Cleared” or “Not Cleared” for the party’s primaries coming up on Saturday.
While no reason was stated for the non-clearance of Alhassan, who is popularly known as Mama Taraba, Shittu was said not to have been cleared for not possessing a certificate of participation in the National Youth Service Corps.
For Lagos State, the incumbent, Akinwunmi Ambode, was cleared alongside two others.
These are Dr. Kadir Obafemi Hamzat and Jide Sanwo-Olu.
Below is the full list of aspirants cleared for the primaries:
