The Minister of Women Affairs and Social Development, Aisha Alhassan, otherwise known as Mama Taraba has declared that no one should blame the current government as being responsible for the nation’s economic woes.
The minister, while speaking with newsmen in Effurun, Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta State where she met with the APC women drawn from the 25 local government areas of the state, said the immediate past government of Goodluck Jonathan brought Nigeria into economic mess.
Alhassan, who was represented on the occasion by the Coordinator for Women Empowerment, Chief Akukalia Angela, assured the people that the present administration was passionate about developing women and reducing hunger in the country.
“The present process of economic recession is not caused by the APC-led government; rather, it was caused by the immediate past government, who looted the nation’s treasury and threw the people into hardship.
“The APC will do everything humanly possible to put Nigeria back on the right positive track,” she said.
The APC Woman Leader in the state, Dr. Janeth Oyubu, while pledging the support of the APC women in the state for the government, alleged that the PDP government had hijacked all the palliatives initiated by the Buhari government.
Oyubu added, “Don’t be carried away with peanuts from the ailing PDP. I can assure you that APC has all it takes to transform your well-being by empowering you so that you can be helpful to your family and the society.” -DP
