We the APC Women Network for Buhari,Kwara North Zone wish to salute the exceptional courage of one of our members and also a leader , Hajia Aisha Ahaman Pategi , the former commissioner for local government and chieftaincy affairs for daring to challenge the rot in our political system even at the expense of her appointment.
The reports on her purported resignation which is making waves on social media does not come to us as a shock since she had already discussed the moves in private with some of our leaders . Even though she was advised against such move because our forum felt it would be a minus to women agitation in kwara state , but the decision is a progressive one and will go a long way towards shaping political future of women in politics.
We urge Hajia Aisha Ahaman Pategi to stand on her feet and not succumb to any pressure unless due process and proper accountability are fully observed in all the grey areas listed in her demands . This will serve as a signal to those in power that Kwara North Women are not pushover and cannot be intimidated by anyone no matter how exalted their office .
We call on relevant anti corruption agencies, civil society groups and other NGOs to beam their searchlights on this ugly development in Local Government ministry and the ministry of Finance on order to ensure kwara Kwara taxpayers money is only used for kwara development.
Hajia Aisha Ahaman Pategi should be rest assured that the entire structure of APC Women Network for Buhari in the state is solidly behind her in this struggle for transparency and accountability
