Ahead of the APC national convention indicators are gradually pointing to a fact that Haj. Salamatu Baiwa might be emerging unopposed as the National Women leader of the party.
Our source disclosed that her former major contender in the race for women leader, Dr. Ramatu Tijjani Aliyu Had through a letter she wrote to the Secretary of the convention committee indicated her intention to step down from the race and has pledged to support Haj. Salamatu Baiwa for a rancour free and successful convention.
Our source also revealed that Dr. Ramatu’s decision was hinged on the realization of the fact that with APC having Haj. Salamatu Baiwa as Women leader, 2019 elections will be a work over for the party considering the wide network she has all over the country. Dr. Ramatu has pledged to continue to be a loyalist of the APC; a party entrenched with values of moving the country forward.
We’ve placed several calls to her in order to confirm the said development but all efforts to contact her has proven abortive. However, her aide who we spoke to on phone confirmed the development to be true and apologized on her behalf for not being able to pick our calls as she has been busy since morning , moving from one meeting to another. He added that Dr Ramatu will soon make her statement available to the press as well as collapse all her campaign structure all over the country.
With Dr. Ramatu’s decision to step down, it brings up to two powerful positions to have contestants emerging unopposed as indications has revealed that Adams Oshiomole might be emerging as an unopposed chairmanship candidate in the convention.
