APC Women Network for Buhari , AWNFB

We the APC Women Network for Buhari,Kwara North Zone wish to extol the exceptional courage exhibited by one of our members and leader in Patigi local government area , Hajia Aisha Ahaman Pategi , the former commissioner for special duties who showed brave spirit by voluntarily resigning from a government which seems to be losing goodwill of kwara people particularly amongst the women constituency in the state.

Regrettably, the same government under which Aishat served meticulously and refused to compromise her integrity until her last resignation have suddenly began to propagate series of toxic propaganda and character assassination targeted at denigrating the reputation of Hajia Aishat Ahman Pategi and bring her to public ridicule.

If despite Aishat Pategi selfless services and contributions to the government within the short space of time , the only way Governor Abdulrazaq could repay her is to instruct his press officers to launch such bad press against her as exemplified by Rafiu Ajakaiye statements , then we are force to conclude that the Governor actions suggest his lack of respect for the women constituency and his seemingly flagrant ingratitude is soaring .

We want to state strongly that the people of pategi and entire kwara north women have been betrayed by Governor Abdulrazaq and would not accept further media attacks on the person of our daughter .

Let us also add that Hajia Aisha Ahaman Pategi consulted wide before arriving at her decision and she has the backing of our highly referred Stakeholders including traditional institutions in Kwara north, thus any attacks on her will be considered as an affront on our people and such would never be allowed to go scot free .

Governor Abdulrahaman Abdulrazaq should therefore calls his men to order as Kwara north women are not like the APC State Party Chairman who refused to act when one of the Governor aide went on radio and hurled series of insults on the state party Chairman, Bashir Omolaja Bolarinwa and Governor refused to address this .

For daring to challenge the rot in our political settings and even at the expense of her political fortune , Aishat deserved to be commended for standing as a valour where many would have compromise their integrity . What she has displayed in all these reflected she’s a noble pategi and Kwara north woman and as a group , we are ready to protect her with our last drop of blood.

This statement therefore signal warning to anybody fanning ember of discord in connections with this issue should think well because if any hazard God forbids should befall Aishat Ahman Pategi, we as women group and the good peace of pategi will hold Governor Abdulrahaman Abdulrazaq responsible.

We urge Hajia Aisha Ahaman Pategi to remain firm on her feet and refuse to be intimidated by any negative tantrums from those who have reduced themselves to sycophants before the corridor of power just to fill their stomachs . Your courage and bravery have passed a message to the world that Kwara North Women are not pushover and cannot be intimidated by anyone no matter how exalted their office .

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

Signed :

Hajiya Hadiza Abubakar ,

Zonal Coordinator,
